Ramadan rhymes

Simple rhymes to share this beautiful time of dawn…Assalamu alaikum warahmatullah

***

Subhahanallahi wabihamdihi Words that fill the scales Said my beloved prophet Who I long to meet…inshAllah soon It will be. On that great day When my scale I fervently pray Will be filled with Subhahanallahi wabihamdihi

***

The stomach moans and groans My senses are numbed with the pain I count the hours until My throat can feel the cool rain Of water..truly The barren earth is brought to life, The sun sets and the call rings out Come to prayer, come to salvation, come to success, come to joy Come, come! And so a day’s fast necessary to know what it means to be saved And to know… Give, give, to those who are waiting for your aid A wandering soul finds rest Taught by a merciful Lord How to forget the self For this brief twelfth of a year, to be sanctified.

***

The moon so soft, the faintest crescent shyly peeps before descending Oh so gently greets This bounteous month Heralding A peaceful time of prayer and service It is Ramadan, days resplendent With God’s glorious kindness and angels walking among us Greet your neighbour and share The time will pass quickly, beware May it bring you opportunity to polish your heart Clean your soul and refresh your spirit May you once more, be whole

****

Peace to all my brothers and sisters this blessed month.
