Surah Al-Hadeed 57: - (The Iron)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most-Merciful

(That is the bounty of Allah that He gives to whomever He wills, and Allah is the Lord of the great bounty ... 57:21)

COMMENTARY: The foregoing verse enjoined upon us to march forth and compete each other in marching to Paradise and its bounties. This could give rise to the thought that Paradise and its eternal pleasures and delights are the direct result of our actions. This verse clarifies the point that good actions are not necessarily the sufficient cause for the attainment of Paradise. Man's life-long actions cannot be an adequate price even for the bounties he has received in this world, let alone the everlasting bounties of Paradise and its eternal blessings. Anyone who enters Paradise will do so out of Allah's grace and mercy, as is mentioned in a Prophetic Hadith, recorded in Sahihain on the authority of Sayyidna Abu Hurairah RA who reports that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) has said:

"No one will attain salvation by means of his actions only." The Companions enquired: "Not even you, 0 Messenger of Allah?" He replied: "No, not even I will attain Paradise because of my actions, unless Allah bestows His grace and compassion on me." [Mazhari]

You say you love me
You act like you care
You abandon me, whenever you feel like
It is as if I am not there

The two of you loved each other, or so you say
Then why do I always feel like I am just in the way
Why am I not important to either of you??
Why don’t you want me to stay….

I want to tell my story
I want to have my say
I have a voice to speak, but I never can have my say …
You don’t want to listen
And you don’t want me to stay

So many times I’ve tried to end my life
It just all get too much at times
I wonder if I did it, would you even care
Maybe you will be happy
Cos then I am finally out of your lives

Maybe you will be sad
And wish that you have tried
All I want to say is how I feel
How much pain I have suffered and how much more I endure…

Please tell me “Why wont you Listen”?
I cannot take it anymore…
