Source: O Single Muslims!
This is a poem dedicated to all my single Muslim brothers and sisters who reject following their desires and falling into haraam but are instead keeping halal until they get married. Because everyone needs a little encouragement sometimes! 🙂
First, some words of advice from Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala ) and His Messenger (Salalahu Alayhi wa Salaam):
“And let those who find not the financial means for marriage keep themselves chaste, until Allah enriches them of His bounty.” (24.33)
“Whoever seeks chastity Allah will make him chaste, and whoever seeks help from none but Allah, He will help him, and whoever is patient He will make it easy for him, and no one has ever been given anything better than patience.” (Bukhari)
Abdullaah ibn Mas’ood said, “We were with the Prophet while we were young and had no wealth whatsoever. So Allah’s Messenger said, “O young people! Whoever among you can marry, should marry, because it helps him lower his gaze and guard his modesty (i.e. his private parts from committing illegal sexual intercourse etc.), and whoever is not able to marry, should fast, as fasting diminishes his sexual power.” (Bukhari)
It’s really hard being a single Muslim!! Am I right? We are constantly bombarded with either reminders of marriage or the many haraam alternatives. It seems like EVERYONE is getting married but us! So as we attend countless weddings throughout the year, for whatever reason we are not able to marry (most of the time this choice is made for us). However we do NOT choose the haraam paths because we fear Allah Azza wa Jal and know that He is All-Aware, All-Knowing, All-Seer and All-Hearer. SubhanAllah! And we know that the haraam we engage in we will see again on Qiyamah in a record and we will have to answer for it!! We know on that day our eyes, ears, legs and bodies will be a witness against us! 😦
We know a few hours or days of fulfilling desires is NOT worth confinement in the hellfire.
“…Our Lord! Avert from us the torment of Hell. Verily! It’s torment is ever an inseparable, permanent punishment. Evil indeed it (Hell) is as an abode and as a place to dwell.” (25:65-66)
So my single Muslim brothers and sisters please STAY STRONG. Please always keep halal and do NOT listen to those people who call you to immorality.
Always keep Jannah in mind and know that Allah is rewarding you for your patience and for your steadfastness.
InshaAllah this poem will put a smile on your face, bring comfort to your heart and will give you that extra boost to stay strong! 🙂
