    salaam brothers and sisters :) :)

    It's that time of year
    When I'm full of fear
    Scared and unable to sleep
    I keep these thoughts near
    Afraid to share
    Or show my fears

    Revising hard
    Like it's a bigger Fard
    Than following Islam
    Which keeps me calm

    My final exams are nigh
    End of an era
    But my mind is full of terror
    Grade eleven
    Final year
    Have to do well
    A few A*'s and maybe
    A couple of A's
    That is If I'm lucky
    If not how do I tell my family
    That I failed miserably?

    My mum crying
    My dad staring
    Into space
    With an empty face
    Sombre dark frame of mind
    Takes hold like somebody died

    I let down the family
    What will people say?
    Relatives boasting
    Their kids done outstanding
    Whilst my parents hide their shame
    In isolation
    Holding me for the blame


    My life ain't worth living
    And I think about myself deeply
    I think about suicide
    Ending this pain and worry
    With escape to break free

    Expectations so high
    My older siblings are flying
    In their careers
    Doctors and engineers

    I'm expected
    To go higher
    Maintain the tradition
    To succeed in education

    Qualifications
    Job applications
    Working hard
    Lots of money
    Fame and success
    Is everything

    Getting married
    Having kids
    Retirement
    And that's the end!

    That's the plan my parents got
    But I find my mind
    Thinking and asking
    Is their more to life than this?
    Following the society
    or following my Creator?

    Where does happiness and success lie?
    This life or the next?
    You decide.

    Exams can be retaken
    But if I waste my life
    Will I get the chance to come back and re-take?

    wassalam :)

    Exam times can give you stress. But we should force ourselves to relax.

    There is no stress for us

    The biggest carrier is the carrier of Akhirat which is easy to achieve but difficult to understand.

    Whether you would be doctor or engineer, at the end you will get only those things that has been alloted for you by the Almighty ALLAH.

    Dont be worry about yourselves. Rememer one Hadith (Bukhari)

    '' Everything that happens to a believer (man/woman) there is good in it"

    If you get success then Allah is pleased with you. Thanks Allah and He (SAW) will give you more.

    If you are failed/pain/uncussessful then ALLAH will recompensate you in the hereafter by reducing your punishment in the HELL (MAY ALLAH PROTECT YOU FROM THIS) or increasing your rank in the HEAVEN.

    So be patient, and ask help/refuge from ALLAH, ALLAH will give a way to out from your stress, Inshallah.


    Don't think too much about the past. All is predistined.
