Somebody's Mother

 The woman was old and ragged,and gray
And bent with the chill of the winter's day...

The street was wet with a recent snow,
and the woman's feet were aged and slow.....
She stood at the crossing and waited  long....

Alone, uncared for, amid the throng,
Of human beings who passed her by
Nor heeded the glance of her anxious eyes....

Down the street, with laughter and shout,
Glad in the freedom of school let out...
Came the boys like a flock of sheep,
Hailing the snow piled white and deep,
past the woman so old and gray....

Hastened the children on their way
Nor offering a helping hand to her
So meek, so timid, afraid to stir
Lest the carriage wheels or the horses,
feet, Should crowd her down in the,
slippery street....

At last came one of the merry troop,
The gayest laddie of all the group.
He paused beside her and whispered  low,
I'll help you cross, if you wish to go".

Her aged hand on his strong young,
arm She placed and so without,
hurt or harm he guided the trembling
feet along

Proud that his own were firm and strong
Than back again to his friends he went,
His young heart happy and well content....

"She's somebody's mother,
boys you know For all she's aged and poor and slow
And I hope some fellow will lend a,
hand To help my mother,
you understand,
If ever she's poor and old and gray,
When her own children is far away
of just don't have the time to care"
And "somebody's mother bowed her,
head in her home that night and
the prayer she said was,
God be kind to that noble boy,
Who is somebody's son, and pride and  joy"...

Be kind, respect the older
people cause they're somebody
mother, somebody father, somebody
sister or brother and for those
who're bless to still have a mother
and/or a father spend time with
them cause they took care of you
when you couldn't take care of yourself.

Have a nice day

Don't we all???


I was parked in front of the mall wiping off my car. I had just come 
from the car wash and was waiting for my wife to get out of work. 
Coming my way from across the parking lot was what society would 
consider a vagrant. 
From the looks of him, he had no car, no home, no clean clothes, and no
money. There are times when you feel generous but there are other times
that you just don't want to be bothered. This was one of those "don't 
want to be bothered times." 
"I hope he doesn't ask me for any money," I thought. 
He didn't. 
He came and sat on the curb in front of the bus stop but he didn't look
like he could have enough money to even ride the bus. 
After a few minutes he spoke. 
"That's a very pretty car," he said. 
He was ragged but he had an air of dignity around him. His scraggly 
blond beard keep more than his face warm. 
I said, "thanks," and continued wiping off my car.
He sat there quietly as I worked. The expected plea for money never 
As the silence between us widened something inside said, "ask him if 
he needs any help." I was sure that he would say "yes" but I held true 
to the inner voice. 
"Do you need any help?" I asked. 
He answered in three simple but profound words that I shall never forget. 
We often look for wisdom in great men and women. We expect it from 
those of higher learning and accomplishments.
I expected nothing but an 
outstretched grimy hand. He spoke the three words that shook me. 
"Don't we all?" he said.
I was feeling high and mighty, successful and important, above a vagrant
in the street, until those three words hit me like a twelve gauge 
Don't we all
I needed help. Maybe not for bus fare or a place to sleep, but I needed help. I reached in my wallet and gave him not only enough for bus fare, but enough to get a warm meal and shelter for the day.
Those three little words still ring true. No matter how much you have, no matter 
how much you have accomplished, you need help too. No matter how little you 
have, no matter how loaded you are with problems, even without money or
a place to sleep, you can give help.
Even if it's just a compliment, you can give that. 
You never know when you may see someone that appears to have it all. 
They are waiting on you to give them what they don't have. A different 
perspective on life, a glimpse at something beautiful, a respite from 
daily chaos, that only you through a torn world can see. 
Maybe the man was just a homeless stranger wandering the streets. Maybe
he was more than that.
Maybe he was sent by a power that is great and 
wise, to minister to a soul too comfortable in themselves.
Maybe God looked down, called an Angel, dressed him like a vagrant, then said, "go minister to that man cleaning the car, that man needs help." 
Don't we all?

The Du’aa (Supplication to Allaah) and Tasbeeh (Words of glorification of Allaah) by Yoonus ‘alaih-is-salaam (Peace be upon Him)

Assalaamu ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh
May Salaam (Peace), Allaah’s Rahmah (Mercy) and His Barakaat (Blessings) be upon you
أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم
بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمـَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
فَلَوْلَا أَنَّهُ كَانَ مِنْ الْمُسَبِّحِينَ
لَلَبِثَ فِي بَطْنِهِ إِلَى يَوْمِ يُبْعَثُونَ
“Had he not been of Musabbiheen (those who do Tasbeeh,who glorify Allâh), He would have indeed remained inside its belly (the fish) till the Day of Resurrection.”

The Du’aa(Supplication to Allaah) and Tasbeeh(Words of glorification of Allaah) by Yoonus ‘alaih-is-salaam (Peace be upon Him) are described in the following Aayah of Soorah Al-Anbiyaa:
لَّا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ
Laa Ilaaha illaa anta Subhaanaka innee kuntu minaththaalimeen
“There is no god but thou: glory to thee: I was indeed wrong who committed Zulm and injustice!”
Allaah The Exalted says:
” And remember Zun-nun, when he departed in wrath: He imagined that We had no power over him! But he cried through the depths of darkness, “There is no god but thou: glory to thee: I was indeed wrong!” Qur’an (21:87)

” So We listened to him: and We gave him Najaat (salvation, deliverance, that is, We delivered him) from Ghamm (Distress): and thus do We deliver those who have Eemaan ( faith in Allaah and His Rasool sall Allaahu ‘alaihi wasallam ).” Qur’an (21:88)
Now this is a very significant lesson for  the sons and daughters of Aadam ‘alaih-is-salaam ( peace be upon him) who are self-afflicted by distress and ghamm at an unprecedented scale in human history (since the creation of Aadam ‘alaih-is-salaam), and that is, how Allaah delivers and saves mankind from ghamm, and how Allaah gives najaat to his slaves and creatures.
Eemaan in Allaah and His Rasool sall Allaahu ‘alaihi wasallam and Tasbeeh of Allaah is the key to najaat of mankind from all kinds of ghamm.
We should say سُبْحَانَ اللّهِ Subhaan Allaah (Glory be to Allaah who is pure from and above all flaws) 100 times after Fajr and ‘Asr everyday.
We can say...
Laa Ilaaha illaa anta Subhaanaka innee kuntu minaththaalimeen
every morning and every evening. “There is no god but thou: glory to thee: I was indeed wrong who committed Zulm and injustice!”
The meanings of Du’aa (Invoking Allaah by praying, Supplication to Allaah),Tawbah(repentance) and Istighfaar (imploring Allaah to forgive you,praying for seeking maghfirah(forgiveness) from Allaah) are all implicit in this above Du’aa of Yoonus ‘alaih-is-salaam.
May all Muslims say at least once in life this Du’aa:
لَّا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ

The Warm Glow of Life

The warm glow of life

Make the world brighter today. Do it not because you should, but because you can. The reason for joy is joy. It needs nothing more than to be.
Feel the warm glow of life. Marvel at the exquisite beauty in every detail.
Gently accept and embrace the richness of this moment that is now. Give sweet expression to the unique voice living within you.
With each fresh gust of the breeze, there are new possibilities. There is more to experience than you can even imagine.
Choose to live and to
fulfill just a small fraction of the immense promise that is now. And you'll find life to be rich beyond all measure.
