New Poem on the Crisis in Somalia

Salam Everyone,

Here is a poem I recently wrote on Somalia. insha’Allah hope you guys find it beneficial! I’m still working on the shirts for the campaign to raise money, so stay tuned. 🙂

Whenever you feel like you don’t have much,
just look at those in Somalia who don’t have nothing,
How can we feel uncomfortable when Allah (swt) says “we can’t count our blessings”,
Shatan always whispers in our hearts and opens room for complaint,
so fill your heart up with gratitude and give thanks,
Don’t think, you won’t be questioned on why you didn’t help,
Allah swt is the ultimate judge, so put aside just caring for yourself,
What’s given to you, can be taken back at any instance,
Don’t just expect the next person will take the responsibility,
because after all you were also a witness,
Allah swt knows how much we can really give,
but the reality is,
We only got one life to live,
Which means we don’t got a penny or a second to waste,
Gotta increase faith, before it’s too late,
it starts with remembering the poor before you eat your full plate,
So close your eyes and just imagine,
no water or food in the hot desert for months, stuck in an extreme famine,
where kids are so weak, they can’t even cry or scream, sounds like a clip from a movie scene,
this is real, no hollywood script, it can be really happen,
so next time you come across the donation box,
pull out your money and drop it like it’s hot,
shatan will try to stop you but remember your wealth will only grow, and better yet,
your only purifying your soul.
