In the Name of Allah

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

<=><=><=><=><=><=><=><=>
