The Adhaan

- the Muslim call to prayer

Written mid August 2010 - (44 lines)

*

Allaaaaaaahu Akbar! - God is great!
The call which all good Muslims await:

Give credit, thanks and glory where due
ALLAH - we give that, and more, to you!

Every moment of every day
Someone somewhere prepares to pray
As once again the Muadhin calls
The faithful to prayer as darkness falls
Or recedes, from dawn to dusk
Irresistibly attracted to the mosque

At work, travelling, or at home
We seek the nearest graceful dome
When from its slender minaret
The call that nobody can forget
Once heard, is carried on the air
Suddenly we become acutely aware:

Give credit, thanks and glory where due
ALLAH - we give that, and more, to you!

As night once more turns into dawn
The awakening local faithful are drawn
To the masjid, the prostrating place
Where the pure-hearted turn an honest face
To Makkah as they stand and bow and kneel
In worship that is natural, genuine and real:

Give credit, thanks and glory where due
ALLAH - we give that, and more, to you!

The Adhaan interrupts both sleep and dream
As the Earth follows the ancient scheme
For day and Adhaan go hand in hand
And the twins visit every land
As they follow the predictable path of the Sun
Forever passing the message on:

Give credit, thanks and glory where due
ALLAH - we give that, and more, to you!

The Moon still reflects and the Sun still burns
Despite all its problems the Earth still turns
And so long as it does we will honour the vow
We made to the Creator and therefore now
Willingly heed the appointed term
For the time has come to reaffirm:

Give credit, thanks and glory where due
ALLAH - we give that, and more, to you!

The call which all good Muslims await:
Allaaaaaaahu Akbar! - God is great!

Another inspiring piece of work, undoubtedly the important of adhan can't be emphasized enough, and always welcome is that sound, and drives away the accursed one. Keep them coming akhi, may Allaah bless you. Ameen.
