Narrated by Mujahid: Abdullah bin Umar (RA) said: “Allah’s Apostle took hold of my shoulder and said, “Be in this world as if you were a stranger or a traveller.” The sub narrator added that Ibn Umar used to say; " If you survive to the evening, do not expect to be alive in the morning, and if you survive till the morning do not expect to be alive in the evening, and take from your health for your sickness and (take) from your life for your death."
(Sahih Bukhari: Kitab Ar-Riqaq)
I'm a solitary travelleress
Following the sign
Travelling the dunya
In hope, one day paradise will be mine.

I try to live my life
By my guide that is Islaam
It tells me whats halal for me
I try to avoid, haraam.

It is not all that simple tho'
When shaytaan is on my case
He's telling me, all that's wrong
So that i might loose my faith.

It's all about control I guess
Of my actions, hopes, desires
So long as I, keep my nafs in check
and pray I, avoid the fire.

I raise my hands in dua
That one day i'll meet Allaah
And He'll grant me forgiveness
So I reach my one true goal, Janaah

(SS, 2006)
