Ramadan Poem

A blessed month is near,
so sacrifice and Allah let us fear.
Don't be hypocritical, at the beautiful recitation shed a tear.
Make plenty of sincere du'as as the Rab can hear.
Nothing is impossible - yes, even our dreams
Change your ways and leave the filthy language and the screams.
Ramadan isn't the only time to worship Allah,
Seek His pleasure as did Rasullullah.
Be a firm believer in your deen,
and make sure that your intentions are pure and keen.
Facing calamities? -They only make the believer strong.
From ourselves let us not steal and make our prostrations long.
Even when insulted, be forbearing.
And instead of you, it'll be the devil swearing.
It's a month in which the Qur'an was revealed,
And thus we find a cure for even that which our hearts have concealed.
Prostrate before Allah and pray for His blessings,
because the child we left back home is hungry while we buy our favorite dressings.
Fear Allah in the way that you deal with others.
Forgive and forget for we are all sisters and brothers.
Happy Ramadan to each and all.
Don't forget to call Allah before you fall.
