Poem written by : Velma Cook

In the name of Allah we are born
In His name we live
and in His name we die


Our shadows prostrate to their Creator morning and evening
without our consent
Birds and animals usher in the times of prayer


Birds circumambulate the Ka'ba
while migrating birds stretch forth their wings
finding their way by Allah's Mercy


Only to feel unrest and leave once more
ever-searching, traveling discontent until they die


We, also wander
some blindly
while others see
