“Ramadan Resolution Mr. Devilish” by Awil Jama


Featuring Brother Awil Jama for the 3rd time, inshallah (God willing) it will be a beneficial reminder for me and other Muslim Youth. See below to check out his other featured poems. Also check a Ramadan advice from a Shaykh.

Ramadan Resolution Mr. Devilish

by Awil Jama

This is my Ramadan resolution
Pardon my departure Mr. Devilish.
Farewell & Good riddance
Mr. Instigator of sin, fear & anger
Enough is enough, the season is right
The addiction is over, the cure is here
My creator is calling and I must answer
Giver of life and death

This is my Ramadan resolution
Pardon my departure Mr. Devilish
No more part timing, half stepping
The deen, I am going in full time
Bottles down, ciggs down, gaze down
Hijab on, Kufi on, prayers up, knees down

This my Ramadan resolution
Pardon my departure Mr. Devilish
Your intentions are my repentances
My intentions are your nemesis
Pure, blissful & god-meaningful.
Forever Dismissive of Your demise
I am.. Freely.. Independently-Thinking & plotting
Against You

This is my Ramadan resolution
Pardon my departure Mr. Devilish
Fasting for a cause, greater than
Your temptations and intentions
Blessing 10x greater, spiritually awaking
The heart and mind
To be near the
Greatest One.
Allahu akbar
