This is the Man

The Islamic year, 1442, month of Ramadaan is on the periphery of its departure and the 1442 month of Shawwal is at the gates of arrival. Eid ul Fitr is yet to be celebrated in South Africa whilst the moon in its orbit gave its witness in other parts of the world; Ramadaan still remains our esteemed guest of honour. The welcome of Shawwal is done by Ramadaan and the sages of the age have come to make us embrace the new and make good on what has left. Inspired by the light of the Holy Quran by Shaykh Sulaiman Moolla, here rendered is a poem so that you can know the man.

May Allah, the Great, preserve our sages and make them the means of us becoming faithful to Allah, the Majestic and to follow the illustrious example of Muhammad ﷺ.

This is the man...
When the mind was in a grind
 There came this man  showing us how to find.
 In the discourse there were pearls from the depths
 And it revealed from its shell everything beyond maths
 Because he showed how to find Allah when in debt, despair, destitution and in dire straits.
 Alas! I did not tell you his name, because it was not on gates
 Inscribed in hearts of those he touch, his name is Shaykh Sulaiman Moola, Allah be pleased 
 Little did I know that the Holy Quran is his actual feast.
 One day he hugged me and I wished to take from his heart the feast of knowledge
 And all he gave me was words of wisdom as my daily porridge.
 Longing to sit in his company to learn about Al Muzzamil Muhammad ﷺ
 I found his messages to me leading me to As Samad
 The creator of Muhammad ﷺ
 There is this man then, whose name is Shaykh Sulaiman Moola enunciating the Quran & Sunnah
 Comforting the broken heart that is seeking Jannah.
 There is this man who I will spend the day with to drink from the cups of divine knowledge 
 It will save me the years at a Quran college.
 Inspired to write this lines is a grace from An Noor
 Who pegged Mount Thur
 Got the Angel ready to blow the Sur
 But gave mankind all the signs and evidence to avoid Hell
 There is this man who moves to tell
 Hell is not for you and I when we follow Quran & Sunnah
 If we just submit to desire Janah.
 There is this man who makes me read the Quran albeit my scant knowledge 
 But, when he speaks I am left with no shortage.
 The mind ain’t now in a grind
 Because in all I found my find
 Shaykh Sulaiman Moola is teaching me 
 Alhamduillah it is Allah who is there to see.
 May Allah make you meet with Al Mudithir Muhammad ﷺ
 As he is the man ﷺ legacy gives Shaykh the prominence  and character 
 Muhammad ﷺ  mankind’s dominance as the Rector of Character.

  1. I’ve been surfing on-line more than 3 hours lately,
    but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty price sufficient for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made
    excellent content material as you did, the web might be a lot more helpful than ever

  2. I was recommended this web site by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my difficulty.
    You are amazing! Thanks!

    1. Thank you. I am really inspired by your comment and credible acknowledgement of my website. It gives me reason to write more and to have conviction in what I do. It also gives me an understanding of how my views are perceived, appreciated or criticised. I am left inspired.
