Most children in Liberia dream of becoming a president, others a lawyer while most of them a medical doctors but today, because of the lack of support both by the parents and government of Liberia, they are on the streets becoming rock crushers, car washers among speedily vehicles, container loaders, shoes shiners e.t.c.

The most saddening part about it is, the future states leaders are now car loaders, the future lawyers are now practicing their dreams in companies by forcefully doing work against their rights, while others who dream of becoming Medical doctors are now fetching water from deep wells using heavy bucket for many top industrial companies in the rural region, as well as others are also sleeping out on the streets because they refuse to do work that’s more than their strength after being sent by their parents..

Everyday in Liberia, children get involve in to illegal acts like taking cocaine, thieves, drugs consumers etc

Lets give every child an adequate and proper education that will improve their lives and better prepare them for the future not by given them the means of becoming Child labourers that which is very risky to their well-beings…

HIJAB

HIJAB
the name of hajj
That shows the heart
In road of life
To see true light

the skin to some
And sins to non
In the midst of ones
To the soul of believers

The talking of life in lift
That shows height in weight
To be respected in trust
And be obeyed in heart

The sign of happiness
To the smile of females
In the quest for knowledge
As they sing in Arabic voices

OH Hijab
The giver of believe
In the heart of female
And the taker of hit
In the lung of male

In you we respect her vow
As she slip to the sun of heavens
And the moon of Ferdaus
As she hits the swearing shaitan..

RAMADAN

RAMADAN

Ramadan,
the month in Islam
That opens and leads the road to heaven
As it licks the sins of Moamin
And chew the hatred of Muslim

the month of the moon
That swings the thirst of good
In the chest of men
And keeps the lamp of greed
In the cave of rolling hell

Ramadan,
The gate to sweet heaven
And Lock to the hut of hell
For it’s the Key to the root of forgiveness
And way to everlasting joy

Ramadan,
You give away the Deen
To the hands of the Lord in wind
As he opens the cloud of AlJanna
To the heart and lung and mouth of the umma

Ya Ramadan,
You bless us spiritual shifaá
And grants us the words of Surat
As we bow and kneel with our heart
To seek the mercy of Allah

Ya Ramadan,
You deliver my heart the Quran,
Give my soul the light full of Islam
And take away from me the hate of mankind
As you wash my Qalb and Halaq and Lisaan in the river of salaam..

Ya Ramadan,
In you we keep hope
For our deeds is cleaned away;
we bow and prostrate
on flows & speak in heart
like bowing sky to be forgiven
by our only Aezam and Muhaymin.

Oh you Ramadan
You keep me in the room of Sadaqat
Wash me in the sea of Salat
And bring me the rain of Halal
As you wept my heart from Haram..
