‘Fear of God is courage, worshipping Him is freedom, humility before Him is dignity, and knowing Him is certainty.’ ~ The Esteemed Dr Mustafa Mahmoud (Allâh Yirĥamu)
The last published piece by my late Dad ♡ رحمه الله
My Dad’s poetic words became popular through the famous song ‘Enamoured/Enchanted My Soul’ (فتنت روحي) by the singer and composer Ayman Al-Hallaq, which my Dear Mother discovered after my Dad returned to Allâh ﷻ. He never knew his poetic words became a well-loved song.

An Article and Poem about Maher Abdullah Allâh Yirĥamu (my dad) by Khalid AlMahmoud (my hubby).
Wise words just as pertinent today.
A 5-minute clip showing the late Maher Abdullah’s two pennies worth about ‘The Media at War in Iraq’.
My late father Maher Abdullah (Allâh Yirĥamu) was amongst those who encouraged me to consider writing poetry seriously instead of merely secreting them away in the lonely confines of folders on my computer.
Through the Eyes of a Raven was the first poem my Dad (Allâh Yirĥamu) constructively criticised, which I wrote in April 2003.
Sadly, he wasn’t able to read the outcome, which never would’ve been possible without his constructive critique and valuable input.
