Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُه

May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be with you

Appearance and reality

When I look at the Muslims I see an image of religiosity 
When I listen to them I hear the sounds of piety
When I meet them I meet an embodiment of spirituality

Yet, in the shadow of this religiosity my sight sees animosity 
Yet, in the echo of the sound of piety my ear hears apathy 
Yet, in the strength of spirituality lies weakness in character 

What's religiosity without mannerism 
What's speech without pietism
What's appearance without witticism 

Ours is a spiritual society that’s ill-mannered 
Ours is a godly society that’s ungodly
Ours is a vocal society that’s inactive 

We'll excel if we decorate spirituality with exalted character
If we crown talks with planned actions
If we say "Peace be upon you” sincerely
