Life of a Reverted Muslim

"O believers enter into Islam completely and do not follow the footsteps of Shaitan, surely he is your clear-cut enemy. If you falter after receiving the clear-cut message, then keep in mind that Allah is Mighty, Wise. Are they waiting for Allah to come down to them in the shadow of clouds, along with the angels, and make His decision known? Ultimately all matters will be presented to Allah for decision"
(Surah Al-Baqara, Ayah 208-210)

I am Muslim But Only by Name



I am a Muslim, but only by Name

I am a Muslim, but only by name
When it comes to practicing, what a shame!
I go to friends and relatives in suit and tie
It's alright if I occasionally lie.

Yes I practice, BUT when it suits me
Or more to the point, when it pleases society.
If I show my ankles, they'll point and laugh
They'll think it's too short and reckon I'm daft.

If I trim my moustache and grow the beard
They'll reckon I'm a fanatic or something weird.

If I wear the sunnah I'll get great reward
But the Kuffaar will look down on me, that I can't afford.

Yes I'm a Muslim, but only by name.
I make excuses which I admit are rather lame.
Yes I'm a sane man and I'm on the right track
Who am I kidding, I feel like a right jack!

To hide my inferiority complex I protest it's unimportant
Though my heart screams to tell me I'm a blatant fraudulent
The best thing is no-one can hear what's going on inside
People think I've got it made and with my life I'm satisfied.
But I'm afraid this is a fable and it's a pure deception
I have no peace of mind but this I daren't even mention.

If I remain ignorant it's OK, 'cos then I don't have to practice
Yes I'm conniving and these are baseless evil tactics.
But I read the Kalimah and I think I have Imaan
I can't help my attitude - I was placed in a Kufrstaan.

Yes I'm a Muslim, but only by name
And with my precious life I'm playing a foolish disastrous game!

I truly wish and pray for everyone of us to be a Muslim with practices. Faith cant be inherited. Faith need to be cultivated. Do not take Islam for granted because if we are not careful we might slip out of the straight path. Allah remind us;

"O ye who believe! Enter into Islam whole-heartedly; and follow not the footsteps of the evil one; for he is to you an avowed enemy"
(Al-Baqarah 2:208)


O' Allah, please make all of us steadfast in this Deen. Make us and our spouse and all our offspring people of taqwa. Allah.....

  1. As a product of the faith can't be inherited, the worry now lies on future generations - in cultivating faith from within.
