O Princess

I got an email yesterday from a reader of this blog, Maryam Khan, telling me how touching it was for her to read it and how she had tears after reading it.

She said that she felt inspired and as a result wrote a poem about Asma. I liked the poem very much and decided I'd share it with you all, Insha'Allah.

May Allah reward her and keep her on the straight path. Ameen

Here is the poem:

O Princess

The thought of your sweet smile
Made my heart soft

Your patience, your braveness
you kept it till your last breath

O Asma, You are the juwel
The juwel of your beloved father
Your mother, sisters and brothers
Especially your beloved brother, Omar
You are the comfort of his eyes

Your remembrance of Allah
Your trust in Allah
You didn't rely upon others than al-Shafi ta'ala

You called upon your brother,
whenever you needed anything

You used to play with each other
You laughed together
You shared everything with each other
You used to have a beautiful fragrance
No body can smell it anymore
But in the heart of your brother

Now you are gone
Your brother can't see you again
O Asma please do come in his dreams
Let him see the sight of you
Let your brother be sure
about your present condition
Let him know if you need anything

I don't know how you look like, O beautiful sister
But I am sure, your face is filled with Noor
Your heart is enlighted with peace
You are save my dear
No longer will you have any pain
I do nothing but praying for you
Never will I forget you
You are truly lovely and inspiring

You bring joy and tears
At my face
You are a beutiful rose
A rose that never wither
You will always
have a room in my heart, O Princess

May Allah be pleased with your, and enlight your grave with Noor and let you be in the company of the Beloved of Allah and his companions, and let you be among those who stand by the beloved of Allah, and your parent's and siblings and your brother, on the day of Judgement. And may the Merciful, let you be in the company of your family in Jannah. Ameen

    Awww that was sweet of Maryam to write Asma a poem. I can't believe Asma's life has touched so many people. May Allah reward you for telling others about her and may Allah reward her for all that she went through. Take care.
