Come back to the Deen This is a true story, of how a sister came back to her Deen Alhumdulillah!
She was a sweet and innocent girl, her name was Aisha She loved her parents, Abdul and Alisha. For them, she was the best thing to have happened She was always cheerful and never easily saddened She studied hard to achieve her goals, Top of the class, she was told.
She enjoyed spending time with her mates, Until one day they had a debate, Not knowing that this was about to change was her fate.
She started making new friends Began following the latest trends, Mixing with boys is how it begun She thought this was fun Her new friends would constantly, be flirting with boys, In return they were treated as toys.
Aisha started to let shaitan get in her way, She took of her headscarf and went astray. She did this on the sly, What would she have said to her Lord if, suddenly she was to die?
Months later, after the continuous misbehaving, And 'time-to-time' raving. She fell for Zain, the boy of her dreams Well so it seemed. They got closer and closer And fell in love with each other.
She wasn't allowed to out that often, Considered herself to be a boffin So she started bunking school, To be with, Zain, what a fool?! She lied to her mum and dad, Not knowing how it would make them sad.
Then she started drifting apart from everyone Zain was her life, her number one. Her studies went down the drain, She wasn't ashamed.
A year went by; her parents found out and began to cry. What had happened to their sweet little Aisha?
Hours turned into days, days into months and months into years, The regular rowing turned into tears, Her parents were angry, Wanted to send her off to their country
She couldn't stay away from her lover So she decided to do a runner, Consequently her parents found out her plans to runaway with Zain Never has Aisha seen her mum and dad suffer so much pain She saw tears in their eyes She thought no more lies?
Zain kept calling her as he was missing her It was a choice between him or her mother and father What was she to do?
She realised being with Zain Was driving her insane And the people she loved, so much pain.
She went up to her room, And asked herself was she doomed? On her bed was an Islamic book, She picked it up and had a look
To her surprise it read,
"And whoever does evil or wrongs himself but afterwards seeks Allah's forgiveness, he will find Allah Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." [surah an-Nisa; 4:110]
From this day on she turned to Allah Subhana Wata'Ala To leave behind her days of Jahiliyyah Started to pray, five times a day, To keep shaitan away, From leading her astray Love for Allah grew stronger, Alhumdulillah
Aisha realised it was time to finish with her boyfriend, And began making amends with her real friends
She started researching on the Hijab, Wearing the Hijab is no futile action, It must be obeyed by women of the Muslim nation, A woman may go through much trial and tribulation Because she has obeyed Allah Subhana Wata'Ala But the fulfilment of this action will never go unnoticed, Subhan'Allah
"Never will I allow to be lost the actions of any of you; whether male or female" (Surah Al-Imran 3:195)).
She thought to herself Nothing good comes simple With regards of struggle in wearing the Hijab Allah has ordered us to cover our self Not to expose our beauty We should only be recognised by our personality Therefore she put the Hijab back on.
This time her Iman was stronger Since she got back her faith and trust in Allah, Subhana Wata'Ala
Abdul and Alisha, her mother and father Were slowly starting to forgive her, This was a sign from Allah Subhana Wata'Ala As she was constantly repenting and following the Sunnah
Love for their daughter, Was greater than ever.... Alhumdulillah!
Nothing good will come easy in this life, Our Lord has promised not to overburden a soul with more than it can bear. The problem that the we as an Ummah are facing is that we have forgotten that WE ARE TRAVELLERS ON THIS EARTH, AND EVERY TRAVELLER MUST RETURN HOME!!!
