Divine Decree

Vanquishing falsehood, proclaiming the Truth,
Planting the seed of Iman, nurturing it’s fruit,
Extending it’s branches strengthening it’s root
With his message, sweeter than the melody of a flute.
Beckoning us closer to Allah,
Welcoming us under His Mohabbah
Calling us to His divine Rahmah,
Paving the path to Al-Jannah.
A guide to us all
With a heavenly call
Saving us from a treacherous fall
Into Jahannam’s fiery prison wall,
If we follow his way,
If the Prophet we obey
With each passing day,
We’ll never go astray.
The Rahmatul-lil-Alameen
Who struck our hearts with an angelic beam
He led us to Siratul-Mustaqeem
He was the servant of Allah Al-Azeem
Through following his Hadith and Sunnah,
By answering his Adhan to Al-Falah
We become true leaders of the Ummah,
The Ummah of Nabi-ullah.
He is the doorway to Allah’s love and mercy
Allah proclaimed in words full of supreme beauty,
“Say (O Muhammad!) If you love Allah, follow me.”
And thus, it was – the Divine Decree.
