Islam is Here

By Jawad Ahmed

Islam is peace; Islam is ease.
Islam’s not danger or disease.
Islam is love and prosperity.
Islam’s not hatred or adversity.
Islam is salvation through repentance.
Islam has love for all in abundance.
Islam means no harm or affliction.

Islam implores you with affection.
Islam is neither maze nor craze.
Islam is giving Allah all praise.
Islam is acing through the race.
Islam will be on everyone’s face.
Islam is worshipping only the Creator.
Islam’s not mere numbers on a calculator.

Islam gives you power when you surrender.
Islam’s not a terrorist or for a pretender.
Islam is patience and perseverance.
Islam eases your vengeance through tolerance.
Islam is life for all eternity.
Islam gives you respect, moreover dignity.
Islam is winning hearts through honesty.

Islam is giving openly in charity.
Islam makes you wholesome and trustworthy.
Islam is in wealth as well as in poverty.
Islam is your shield against all evil.
Islam is for your soul’s retrieval.
Islam not fundamentalism or fanaticism.
Islam’s not nationalism or racism.

Wake up, people, Islam is here.
Islam is here, so have no fear.
