When I Say…

When I say. . .I’m Muslim,
I’m not shouting “I am the best.”
I am whispering “I seek peace,”
and Islam is the path that I choose.

When I say. . . I’m Muslim,
I speak of this with pride.
And confess that sometimes I stumble,
and need ALLAH to be my guide.

When I say. . .I’m Muslim,
I know this makes me strong.
And in those times when I am weak,
I pray to ALLAH for strength to carry on.

When I say. . . I’m Muslim,
I’m not boasting of success.
I’m acknowledging that ALLAH has rescued me,
and I cannot ever repay the debt.

When I say. . .I’m Muslim,
I’m not claiming to be perfect.
My flaws are indeed visible,
but ALLAH forgives because ALLAH is the most forgiving.

When I say. . .I’m Muslim,
it does not mean I will never feel pain.
I still have my share of heartaches,
which is why I invoke ALLAH’S name.

When I say. . .I’m Muslim,
I do not wish to judge.
I have no such authority,
My duty is to submit to ALLAH’S all-encompassing love.

By Allah is my only hope, Allah is enough for me  :’)
