Begin With Yourself

(Penned by Qalamuddin 23/7/2010)

The good you want others to do
Must begin from yourself too
None but a few
Has this view

We want others to behave
By not being this world’s slave
We criticize and look down
When red they painted the town

To the other dude
We have this attitude
As we think we are already good
A place for us at the heaven’s foot

We judge others by a simple look
Oh! This man must be a crook
And yes! This girl is cheap
Don’t forget my neighbor is a creep

Just that easy we picture others to be
Least we forget in Islam that shouldn’t be
Yes, enjoining good and prohibiting evil
Don’t be easily swayed by the devil

In Islam there is a method
Even Rasulullah (pbuh) shows no hatred
The way to the heart is through kindness
The actions, the words point to politeness

Who are we to judge others when we are not sinless?
A good advice is not pointless
And Yes! Others will show their gratitude
If it is done sincerely and with the correct attitude

The message here is not for you to stop advising
Even there is a saying
“Judge yourself before judging others”
As human we are ‘birds of the same feathers’

Mistake done by a stranger
Must be corrected without showing our anger
The good we show others
Will be rewarded by Allah in a way or another.

Yes! Begin with you
Start being true
Don’t contradict
As only Allah (SWT) gives the final verdict
