GUIDANCE BELONGS TO ALLAH By Johnson Abdulazeez Ayomide
I’m in a world of delusion wandering around
Thinking I’m on the rightly guided path
Our path crossed each other; a brethren of the Ummah
A woman of virtue who is a mother in the Deen
Who is a mercy from Allah to me
She played a vital role in the perfection of Allah’s Nur on me
By Allah’s mercy, I found the right path of Al-Islam
May Allah bless “Alhaja Adijat Ogunsina” (CEO, Al-Amin Ventures, Ibadan)
Many are out there who by Allah’s will they are astray
Why wouldn’t I be grateful to my maker
Yah Rabb! Alhamdulilahi for your guidance
Those that are twisting, wiggling, shaking, shouting, crying, guitaring and pianoing
They have ears but cannot hear
They have eyes but cannot see
They have brains but cannot think
Had it been guidance is for sale
The poor will be astray while the rich will be guided
Allah says in the Glorious Qur’an;
……مَن يَهْدِ اللَّهُ فَهُوَ الْمُهْتَدِ وَمَن يُضْلِلْ فَلَن تَجِدَ لَهُ وَلِيًّا مُّرْشِدًا
…….He whom Allah guides, is rightly guided; but he whom He sends astray, for him you will find no Wali (guiding friend) to lead him (to the right Path). – Surah Al-Kahf, Verse 17
Indeed, guidance belongs to Allah
May Allah guide the strayed and never stray the guided…. Aamiyn
Must watch: Brother Johnson turns Abdulazeez
Quoting what Sheikh Mufti Ismail Menk said, “I always find reverts been steadfast on the Deen (Islam) than those born Muslims, Why? Because a revert to Islam knows what it takes him/her to have spent several years in darkness before seeing the light”.
No doubt about that! After years of shaking, twisting, wiggling, shouting, dancing, guitaring, pianoing, drumming, jumping which were all based on errors and fallacy, such guided soul will hold tight to the right path of Islam.
Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 102:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ وَلَا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنتُم مُّسْلِمُونَ
O you who believe! Fear Allah (by doing all that He has ordered and by abstaining from all that He has forbidden) as He should be feared. [Obey Him, be thankful to Him, and remember Him always], and die not except in a state of Islam (as Muslims) with complete submission to Allah.
Adapted from; LIFE OF A REVERT TO ISLAM By Johnson Abdulazeez Ayomide
In commemorating my 4th year (January 11th, 2019) in Islam, I cannot but to mention the efforts and supports of everyone. My profound gratitude goes to my Mentor and Role Model, Mallam Yusuf Adepoju (Chief Lecturer, ACADIP Nigeria), Alhaja Adijat Ogunsina (CEO, Al-Amin Ventures) and Badmus Muh’Awwal Uptown.
I cannot forget the efforts of others like Ayoola Fatimah Temiloluwa, Maryam Bint Ajiboye, Alhaji Aare Sulaiman Abiodun, Alhaja Bimpe Hafsat Sonaiya, Dr Ibraheem Habeebah Adedoyinsola (CEO, Royal Pearls Notion), Sulaiman Salaudeen Soo Grin, Zainab Odusote, Oniwarere’s Family (Iseyin, Oyo State) and the entire ACADIP Nigeria, Knowislam.com.ng team and others.
We will all die, But when we die we pray Allah make us Muslims till death.
Like Zainab Odusote’s quote, FOREVER FOR ISLAM #FFI, I will always say ISLAM TILL ETERNITY #ITE !
I put my trust in none but the one who created my Soul and my Body as a Whole before my return to the Hole.
For one with Allah is majority !!!
