He has written a poem titled, TO HIM.
To Him Allah
I will make duah (prayer)
Because my heart aches
And pants for words of desire
As my eyelids have refused
To close my eyeballs
For the close of the day.
Still, something I can't explain
Keeps your name right in front of me
Like a sculptured standing statue
I will do Istiharah (supplication) because I had none before me
If indeed, my long time wait and patience
Have found and fetched me the half of my deen
So, to Allah the all knowing
I commit my course
To guide and direct my paths
And by His Will, make all things easy at ease
Beyond my ever and wildest imagination
So I can boldly and gladly say to the Ummah (world)
Those who keep and preserved themselves
For the fear of Allah, for indeed
Allah never leaves His Own and neither does He
Sleep nor slumber whenever they
Cry and call to Him.
