Our Three Winners

Spoken Word 

By: Radhiya

February tenth 2015

A day that will never be removed from our minds and if I knew.., I would’ve never turned on the TV screen

WRAL showcasing the terrorizing Scene

Neighbors… police .. attempting to CLEAN

Clean the mess that was made in minutes

Families unable to comprehend the explicit ..

News they had to endure ..

what do you mean my children are dead ..yalla hurry & find them a cure

Wake up wake up

Khalas leave them they’re gone

Malakul mawt took them to meet their god

I remember being picked up early from school going to the janazah with my mother

We barely talked a long the way because the reality was a bother

It bothered me that people could be that hateful

At that moment I could only feel grateful

Allahu akbar allahu Akbar As Salaamu Alaykum Wa rahmatullah

As Salaamu alaykum Wa rahmatullah

The crowd was silent.. the imam was making dua

The salah finished

I held my moms hand as my tears slowly diminished

This was the largest janazah I’ve ever been to

Our community stuck together left & right and grew

8 years later ;

The light house project stands

Helping the Homeless, community members & promoting brands

Event planning for years to come

I mean look at tonight , look at the outcome

Mohsen, cassidy,& the rest of the team

Put in so much work and effort it may even seem

That they don’t get as much credit as they should

But how could we forget what HE said to his Creation

مَنْ عَمِلَ صَالِحًا مِّن ذَكَرٍ أَوْ أُنثَىٰ وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَلَنُحْيِيَنَّهُ حَيَاةً طَيِّبَةً وَلَنَجْزِيَنَّهُمْ أَجْرَهُم بِأَحْسَنِ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ ‎﴿٩٧﴾

Allah will reward you all with good deeds from this earth to the moon

You couldn’t even imagine

But ..

imagine this

Imagine forgetting all of this bliss

The blessing & barakah of this organization

And forgetting our purpose just to please His Creation

The deen slipping from the tips of our fingers

Practing Islam from the knowledge we gained at 13 still lingers

Lingers in my mind

Why aren’t we sincerely striving anymore

Oh , you think our three winners death is another score

Scores on the board of deaths within the Ummah ?

Haven’t you heard the ayah during the Friday khutbah ?

Who ever kills an innocent person is as if he has killed all of humanity

Refraining ourselves from the social standard the comes from insanity &

stopping the constant use of profanity

People forgetting the reality and

forgetting to focus on their spirituality to safe graud your mentality

from all of this abnormality

You have to care


Nothing in the dunya is easy or fair

But jannah awaits us

Give charity , or smile .. it is contagious!

Take care of yourselves

Don’t leave your Quran dusted on ur shelves

Allah could take you tomorrow

So do it now so on the day of judgement you won’t be in sorrow
