a peom that illustrates the mind-state of a Muslim

They asked me why'd you live this life

i mean to say; you pray each day

and in every prayer bow down and prostrate

furthermore you give chartiy abundently,

dont you fear povery?

why do you wear so modestly

you're not with the fashion, honestly

why do you care so much about being truthful?

some lies and schesmes are not that sinful

why fast a month each year

and abstain yourself from drinking beer

why don't you freely mingle here and there

and stop giving the poor and needy so much care


i answered them; well

because i believe that there's further more

to this life than eat and drink and sleep some more

or waste your time with nonesense and associating with alcohol

you see, the things you listed i lived before

but it didn't bring me happiness or comfort at all

it was a gloomy life of misery

and everything was a complicated mystery

until Allah, The Most Merciful

guided me to faith and then i became full

and then i dedicated my life to earn his pleasure

trying to do a good deed if possible whenever

reaching to the poor is what made my life valuable

living not just for me is the best policy available

humbleness and sincerity is what i aim

through my acts of Worship and to remind me that life aint a game

now i can forgive , now i can live

because now i realised that life is a beautiful gift


- A poem by a Muslim
