A prayer


As I grow up and pass through life

As I bow before Allah each day

I pray I be forever me

My prostration be the same

My heart as white as a dove

Spotless and stainless 

As I achieve things in life

And become someone of rank

I pray I be the same old me

Unpretentious and unassuming 

The word has reached me

That many a children of Adam and Eve

Were virtuous souls but as they grew

And become possessions of swelling mines

They tarried and slithered in goodness

By and by they forgot themselves 

Deluged in mine and pride

So I fear while talking steps in life

Of the destruction precedented

Of the eery faith they met

As I pass by life’s vale and plain

I pray I remember YOU!

  1. Thank you dear! And sorry as well for not answering those questions of the award.But I will definitely take out some time in sha Allah to answer them later after i get the hang of my new project. As of now Im busy these days or would be for years. I have embarked on a journey that needs every minute of my time! It takes much of perseverance and continuity. Please pray for me that I reach its completion.
    Hope WP has an inbox message service so that I could tell you in detail.
