Breaking Free

fb3feea9de42e851bbd0b6ce9eaf8957From the shackles and chains
Of this world’s temptations
Which had me imprisoned
For as long as I can remember
I’m finally breaking free

Finally I’ve got the courage
And I’m not going to let myself get weak
Not going to lose at this game
No, not this time; cause now I see
That I’m finally breaking free

I’ve longed for a day
When I’d finally be able to say
That I’m free to just be
And now I see that it’s here with me
And I’ll finally be breaking free

Life is fleeting and it can be deceptive
So be wise in the decisions you make
Don’t lose reason; watch the steps you take
Remember sinning only gives temporary pleasure
So break free and seek that which you truly treasure.

Now I know that it’s my Lord’s pleasure
That’ll give me happiness beyond measure
Search your heart and you’ll see
That that’s the way it should really be
Freedom is in worshiping our Lord with total sincerity.


So earlier today I posted a poem titled “Breaking Free”, but due to some reason I deleted it (the reason’s not important so I won’t mention it). Anyway, so I was thinking maybe I should replace it with another post. And so here it is. Alhumdulillah. Another poem on a similar topic and guess what…with the exact same title. (;

May Allah Ta’alaa forgive all our shortcomings, forgive us when we forget and not hold us accountable for our sins. May Allah ‘Azza wa Jal give us the hidayah to stay away from the forbidden and strive towards righteousness. Ameen.

“…Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people.” (2:286)


Please remember me in your dua’as.

  1. I read your earlier post in fact still on my phone. I couldn’t see any reason why you deleted it. I suppose you know better. The challenge in this world is like a boat on water. It needs the water to reach its destination but if water comes in the boat it will drown it. So this world is our vehicle to aakhirah and it has its function but it must come in our hearts. We use all the ne’ mats and favours of Allah to prepare for meeting Him on the day of Qiyaamah. It comes in the meaning of a hadith in Mishkaat: ‘ Man ja ala humumahu humman waahida, humma aakhiraatihi kafaahullaahu humuma ( o humma)dunyaahu’
    Transl: Whoever makes his worries one worry; the worry of his aakhirah, Allah will suffice him for his worries of dunya.
    Imagine this the reward of he who focuses his worries on his aakhirah. What will be the reward of he who worries about the aakhirah of the whole of mankind. Allah use us to change the whole focus and direction of mankind from this fleeting dunya to the everlasting bliss of aakhirah.

    1. Beautiful explanation Masha’Allah. Yes, definitely the reward for any good deed done (even if it’s just a thought that crosses our mind) solely for the sake of Allah and out of concern for the aakhira is immense. May Allah Ta’aala keep us steadfast on His Deen. Ameen. Jazak Allah khair.

      About why I deleted the previous poem, honestly even I’m not sure why…but maybe because initially I hadn’t intended to publish it here. Anyway it’s no biggie. 🙂

      It’s okay that you still have it on your phone.


  2. سبحان الله
    This poem really resonated with me, each of us go through their battles and their hardships, I know how it feels, I can relate to that feeling of courage and motivation to keep away from sins and to enjoy the true pleasure that is the pleasure of Allah.
    May Allah give me that motivation once again and keep it in all of us اللَّهُم آمين

        1. Ameen! Jazak Allah khair for the beautiful duas. May Allah ‘Azza wa Jal make this Ramadan a very beneficial one for all of us and make it a means of increasing our eeman and becoming better Muslims and bless us with many more to come. Ameen.

  3. The feeling when you’re able to break free is astounding 🙂 but it those prison bars try to catch up and since that is the most painful, I hope nobody goes through it and is able to realise what true freedom means 🙂

  4. We must cease striving and trust God to provide what He thinks is best and in whatever time He chooses to make it available. But this kind of trusting doesn’t come naturally. It’s a spiritual crisis of the will in which we must choose to exercise faith.


  5. Ok, I’ll be honest when I read the first part, I thought of Ultron saying “now I’m free, there are no strings on me”…unfortunately I read the rest of the poem with his voice in my head.
    Although it does fit well metaphorically if we think sins are satan’s strings to play us like puppets. So no strings means you are free…yaayy but wait, everybody sins… hold on we can fix this…string implies a continuous thing, so maybe in this sense strings will be continuous sins, without repenting to cut them off. GENIUS! (Self proclaimed)

    1. But I think your theory totally makes sense! Okay it took me a while to properly understand what you were saying, but that’s only because I don’t think that fast lol. You’re a genius. اللهم بارك لكم. I bet many people have already told you this.
