Annam Choudhry, who goes by the pen-name moniker of “Bobby Allen Poe” or also just “Bobby”, has written a delightful Islamic spin on the classic Edgar Allen Poe story, “The Raven”…enjoy.
Enjoyments in this world are plenty Distractions, simply, some unhealthy
But when death comes knocking at your door
Suddenly comes knocking, knocking at your chamber door Regret there will be, nothing more.
But your grave is not the end of this story Life was not about success and glory
If you prepared well for life after death
Fearing God and His judgment in your life after death In paradise you’ll be, forever more
So place your forehead on the ground Shopping, vacations, will still be around Just humble yourself before your Lord
He is Oft-Forgiving, Merciful, the Ever-Living Lord Repentance is key… but there is more
So what then is the purpose of life
If your job, family, and friends will not suffice? Worship with your heart, tongue, and limbs Sincere worship with your heart tongue and limbs
But Kufr and Shirk, never more!
There is but One God, no son or mother hath He Sir or madam, truly, think about it logically What use is an heir to the One Who does not die
The Ever-Living, Self-Sustaining Who does not die?
God does not procreate. Need I say more?
Mary’s was a virgin birth, no doubt
A pious maiden chosen for a task to carry out To give birth to the one who has no father
A revered prophet among men, born without a father God says “Be” and it is. Need I say more?
Peace on Jesus the day he was born, the day he dies, then raised alive Peace on him, Moses, Abraham, Jonah, John, Isaac, Jacob and Ismail Peace on Muhammad, last in line, with the message for all of mankind
The seal of the prophets, sent to preach, the message of One God to mankind Complete is your religion… forever more.
