Life is a Short Journey

Life is a Short Journey 
By: Majed Dodeen
 ************************
Our destiny rules over us, even when we are not yet aware of it. The future makes laws for us today.
Friedrich Nietzsche 
*********************************
Life is a journey
Short span of time
Full of ups and downs
We cross its path towards our destination 
From station to station
From birth to death
Predestined steps we are to walk
Predetermined walks we choose to take
On the train or ship of life
A trip, a tour or a voyage
May amaze, surprise or shock us 
May delight, please or motivate us
May carry deep changes
May involve profound fluctuations
May hide unforeseen surprises
Don't let the obstacles of life frustrate your spirit
Not even for a moment
Don't be sad over matters that you fail to get
Be optimistic of what the future holds for you
Live each day as if it's your last
Thank Allah through thick and thin 
Be grateful in good times as well as in bad times
Time goes on 
Life goes on 
Heartbeats stop one day
The devotee soul will knock and penetrate the gates of the sky
Ascending so high
Carried by angels of mercy
How beautiful is the meeting
With the Creator and the Maker 
Of Heaven and Earth.
Enjoying the life of those holy and pious 
A journey of joy and glad tidings 
In life, there are scopes and places
For the believers 
The workers 
The obedient 
The humble
Those who reflect 
Males and females
Those who contemplate
Those who guard their chastity
Those who remember Allah much with their hearts and tongues
Those who deserve forgiveness and great reward in Paradise
*************************
Regardle ss of toil, suffering or hardships
Go on with your aptitude and attitude
March towards the high altitude 
Life is made of tide
Rises and falls 
The unseen is a book guarded by our Lord
We read its pages now and then over years
The winner uses every single second of this opportunity
Be satisfied and gratified 
Accept what the Almighty allotted and decreed 
Put on smiles of contentment on face and lips

The Great Success

The Great Success
********************
I sat alone meditating and contemplating, 
Deeply thinking about the universe, the human being and life.
I asked myself: 
What would a fetus say if I were to phone him, 
If I were to ask him about the circumstances there in his mother's womb; 
How is he living? 
I called him up and asked him to tell me something about his life….
His answer was: 
Although my world is tiny, I am very happy here …
An umbilical cord feeds me, 
A strange amniotic fluid protects me against any outside effects.
My world is ideal…no lying…no cheating and no hypocrisy…
I asked him if he had anything to add.
He replied: for the time being, he could not form his impression of the other side of the story
His last exact words were 'good-bye! Till we meet in your world'.
I waited until the plane landed after that nice short journey, 
The delivery had already taken place
The child was still crying 
People around were cheerfully laughing.
Then I asked the new born baby: as a newcomer to our world, 
What would you say now? 
His answer was: although your world is huge, I see it gloomy and dark. 
This life is weary; a tear, a sigh, 
Then I'll say good-bye and die. 
Your world is full of lying, cheating and hypocrisy. 
I wished I stayed in my mother's womb forever.
I told him 'there is a way if you follow, you can change the terms of your life. 
Your tears can become candles; 
Your sighs can become smiles
Even your death can become life in itself. 
You have come to this world while crying
When people around you were laughing. 
Following that way, you die smiling
When people around you are crying…
He immediately asked me: 'What is this way? 
Please tell me? 
I told him: ' The only way to achieve this is to believe in Allah (Glory be to Him): 
To believe in His beautiful names and attributes
To believe that He is: Allah, the Peace, the Merciful, the Loving, the All-Knowing, the Gracious..etc 
If you do so, you will win paradise and gain immortality
And in paradise you will have: 
Life without death, 
Youthfulness without old age, 
Happiness without misery
And health without sickness.
And this is the real victory
The Great Success & Everlasting Delight and happiness

They Wonder


They wonder why my soul is intertwined with hers! 
They ponder why my eyes embrace hers!
They ask why I love her as birds love migrating!
They ask why I love her as deserts’ sands love raining! 
They ask why my love for her is high peaks
Whereas everything else is but slopes!
They ask why my love for her is the sweetest fate!
They ask why I see her prettier than all flowers! 
They keep asking, wondering and pondering
 I reply, respond, reiterate and state
O, people! 
I do love her because she possesses these characteristics
She is the ….   
Original, elegant & tender;
Innocent, exquisite & adorable;
Beautiful, attractive & gorgeous;
Sensitive, delicate & gentle;
Ethical, faithful & honorable;
Amazing, marvelous & intelligent;
Sophisticated, satisfied & wonderful;
Moralistic, brilliant & high-minded; 
Delightful, devotee & amiable;
Decent, transparent & thankful;
Honest, benevolent & obedient;
I do love her because she represents chastity;
She is the enthusiast & sweet worshipper;  
The valuable, priceless & enchanting queen;
The unique, matchless & charming knight;
The appreciative, grateful & contented moon; 
The perfect, treasurable & precious pearl;
The cute, scintillating & courteous treasure; 
The distinguished, eminent & privileged angel;
The rare, exceptional & noble star;
The magnanimous, altruist & dexterous artist  
The blooming, flourishing & confident rose;
The watchful, soothing & pacific dove.

Silent Love

Silent Love by Majid Dodeen
 I love her silently
 She has a beautiful voice 
 Lovely taciturnity and silence
 Charming complexion 
 Gorgeous biography
 Pure innermost feelings 
 Clean inward thoughts
 I know the magnitude of the pleasant short moments that brought us together
 They mean all my life
 I can tell you now that I knew I loved you even before I met you
 But what matters to me currently is that I know you
 I do love you
 As birds love flying and traveling freely
 As sands of deserts love rain heavily
 As roses love the morning sunrays  
 As nights love the light of the full moon 
 You are my destiny, fortune and fate
 At this moment, I feel speechless
 All languages cannot express the meanings that I would like to convey to you
 All languages fall short of producing the vocabulary that I want to tell you
 You may consider this to be one of my qualities when I vow to you:
 I am still looking for a love synonym that expresses this unique love and longing for you
 You have been always asking, "Have you found it?"


 Therefore, O my angelic sweetheart,
 Who will be known by the universe through my description!
 I confess that I have committed love with my competent and complete capacity, awareness and will, accompanied by premeditation and surveillance
 So that you be the only female who has outshined & surpassed all women in my heart
 You settle down deep in me
 You put your crown on the throne of my heart
I decided to love you silently 
Hoping that Allah Almighty might accomplish a matter already enacted

Pouring Raindrops by Majid Dodeen

Pouring Raindrops by Majid Dodeen

Oh, my fate and soulmate in every trip and travel 
Oh, my beloved and dearest companion in the journey of a lifetime.
Oh, my sweetheart, lifelines, and oxygen when I breathe in and out. 
Oh, my intimate friend here and in the hereafter
 I pray that you will be my queen in paradise
 In the house of eternity and immortality
The dwelling of Heaven, by Allah’s mercy, forever.
(In a seat of honor near a Sovereign, Perfect in Ability.)
“On gold-encrusted couches;
Reclining on them, arrayed face to face”
You are the chastity and purity, even purer 
Listen to me and hear the glad news attentively
Raindrops commence pouring heavily
Rain showers of spiritual pearls and jewels
Touching the surface of the earth with love and tenderness 
Convey the sweetest, wisest, and best lessons
Instilling loyalty and closeness to every contemplating figure 
Every intelligent and significant mind 
Bountiful Rain and fruitful life for every grateful 
Get closer sweetie; let us walk hand in hand in the rain.
Brings and unites us together with our best and wisest destiny. 
Do you hear the pitter-patter of falling rain?
Do you smell the petrichor of rain showers?
It flows and seeps deeply into our souls.
Dribbles and drops whisper deep down.
With them, the light of the dawn breaks and shines
Dew sprays like perfume fragrance.
Come closer! Hands entwine and breaths embraced together.
 And along with the spaces, large swaths and paths
We watch the flowers bloom and blossom. 
Roses flourish quietly and emerge like suns and moons.
We hear whispers of melodies played by the sound of rain.
Fresh from balanced strings spread
Come closer, there is no fear of a roaring wind.
With you, every sadness vanishes.
Every tension is defeated. 
All worries die out and commit suicide 
Smile! Oh, Lady of the Rose.
The face of the joy
Glory lover. 
Handle my pains, agonies and treat my sleeplessness 
How it is delicious to pass away between your neck and torso
Isn't he a martyr who drowns in the pretty river? 
Isn't he a martyr who is swallowed up by the waves of the sea?
