View Full Version : Faith, hope, patience

Qurratul Ayn

Assalamu Alaikum

Dedicated to the people in the Pakistan earthquake

Despair, desperation,
An overwhelming sense of dread,
Peopel fall to their kness in disbelief,
As people lay around dead.

Mangled bodies, distorted faces,
Bruised, bloodied
and unrecognisable,
Crushed limbs
and paralysed expressions,
The pain and the suffering
is undeniable.

Living happy humans
have become this,
A species of wounded forms,
Decaying in the swirling wind,
The results of hurricanes and storms.

Is this yet another test God
has sent down,
To see how well His creation
will cope?
Or is it a punishment
for the disbelievers,
To teach them to have
faith and hope?

Is it just the result of human evil,
As it spreads around the world
worse than ever?
Or is it the beginning of a new Earth,
Where everyone will be
united together?

So many questions,
yet very few answers,
We can only have patience and wait,
See crushed bodies
than be recovered and buried,
Everything is written in fate

We must have love
and right the wrongs,
And smooth out all the creases,
Have hope and faith
and be cleaned inside out,
As we fix toghether all the pieces

Jazak'Allaah Khair.

As you can tell, I posted this quite a few years back. 6 years ago! WHOA! :uuh:

As you can see it's not mine, I just posted this at that time when the earthquake struck Pakistan...

Lol, you're funny, My Sister Haafizah :wub:
