The Poem that made Imam Ahmad bin Hambl Rahimullah cry by Mufti Abdur Rahman bin Yusuf Manghera

Halalified YT Audio


This poem is Mash'Ala very true and very heart tocuhing

Quote:

إذا ما قال لي ربي .. أما استحييت تعصيني
وتخفي الذنب عن خلقي .. وبالعصيان تأتيني
If my Lord asks me
"Have you no shame in disobeying me?
You hide your faults from my creation
yet full of sin you come to Me"

فكيف أجيب يا ويحي .. ومن ذا سوف يحميني
So what will I answer? O' Woe to me,
and who shall protect me do you see?

أسلي النفس بالآمال .. من حين إلى حين
I keep forestalling my soul
with thoughts of hope from time to time

وأنسى ما وراء الموت .. ماذا بعد تكفيني
And forgetting what is to come after death,
and after I am warped in the sheets of the dead

كاني قد ضمنت العيش .. ليس الموت يأتيني
As if I have guaranteed living forever,
and that death will not overcome me

وجاءت سكرة الموت الشديدة من سيحميني
Then the harsh drunkenness of death overtakes me,
who now will be able to protect me?

نظرت إلى الوجوه أليس منهم من سيفديني
I looked at the faces, is there not from amongst them
who will ransom me?

سأسأل ما الذي قدمت في دنياي ينجيني
I will be asked
what have I put forth in my life to save myself

فكيف إجابتي من بعد ما فرطت في ديني
So what will I answer,
after I've been neglectful regarding my Deen

ويا ويحي ألم أسمع كلام الله يدعوني
O' woe to me, did I not hear the
Speech of Allah calling out to me??

ألم أسمع لما قد جاء في ق و يس
Did I not hear what has come in Qaaf'n, wa Yaseen'i

ألم أسمع بيوم الحشر يوم الجمع والدين
Did i not hear of the day the crowds will be summoned,
the day we will be collected, and the day of al-Deen'i

ألم أسمع منادي الموت يدعوني يناديني
Did I not hear the caller of death
calling me; seeking me

فيا رباه عبد تائب من ذا سيؤويه
O my lord a slave to you I come repenting,
who than shall grant me shelter?

سوى رب غفور واسع للحق يهديني
Other than an oft-forgiving Lord,
to the truth he will guide me

أتيت إليك فارحمني وثقل في موازيني
I have come to you, so have mercy on me,
and make heavy my weights

وخفف في جزائي أنت أرجى من يجازيني
And lighten my reckoning you are the best
of who will bring me to reckoning[/quote]



[quote]Read these words:

If my Lord asks me, "Have you shyness in disobeying me?

You conceal your sins from my creation - and with sins you come to me."

So how will I answer? O woe to me - and who shall protect me?

I keep averting my soul with thoughts of hope - from time to time.

And I forget what is to come after death - and what is to come after I am shrouded.

As if I am guaranteed life (eternally) - and that death will not come to me.

And when the severe stupor of death overtakes me - who will protect me?

I looked at the faces; is there not from amongst them who will ransom me?

I will be asked regarding what I have prepared in my life to save me (on the Day of Judgement).

Then how will I answer - after I have neglected my religion.

Woe to me! Did I not hear the Speech of Allāh inviting me?

Did I not hear what came in (the chapters of) Qāf and Yā-Sīn?

Did I not hear about the Day of Gathering, the Day of Assemble and the Day of Judgement?

Did I not hear the crier of death inviting me, calling me?

So O my Lord, a slave (turning to you) I have repented - so who then shall shelter me?

Except a Lord extensive in forgiveness - to the truth He will guide me.

I have come to you (in repentance) - so have mercy on me, and make heavy my scales (with good deeds).

And lighten my account - You are the best of who will bring me to account

Quote:
A man once came to Imām Ahlus-Sunnah, Ahmad bin Hanbal and asked him, "O Imām, what is your opinion on poetry?"

He replied, "Which poetry is this?" to which the man responded by reciting the following couplets:

إذا ما قال لي ربي اما استحييت تعصيني

If my Lord asks me, "Have you shyness in disobeying me?

وتخفي الذنب عن خلقي وبالعصيان تأتيني

You conceal your sins from my creation - and with sins you come to me."

Imām Ahmad took these lines and repeated them over and over again, and wept profusely to such an extent that one his students said that he almost perished due to him crying so much.

Can you change the spelling from 'humble' to 'Hanbal' in the title.

I liked the title, I thought it was quite nice. Humble and cry, you know.

I guess the thing is, many people say hambali and many say hanbali.

Don't know about you akhii, but I find it extremely touching.


You know sometimes you get that feel where a nasheed is stuck at the back of your head and its all that you listen to for days.
