Regrets in Silence



Hammer banging nails on the wall,
Words of wisdom listing the wanted,
A reward for whoever finds peace,
Another culprit is stuck on the wall,
This time his name is even longer,
There is even a description attached,
“Dead or Alive” swarming the city,
Guilty murderous chaotic outcasts,
Villagers closing doors and windows,
Mothers hushing their crying child,
Fathers putting the candles out,
Law-abiding citizens turned evil?
A new mayor has been elected,
The law is once again enforced,
And each one has been jailed,
Questioned for their reasons,
Even if beyond comprehension,
'Tell me why on earth did you do it?'
'Did you have a terrible childhood?'
'Were you tortured or forced into it?'
'Were you depressed or mentally ill?'
Copious excuses were created,
For the purpose of being pardoned,
Yet this particular peculiar person,
Who kept staring cluelessly at the sky,
His eyes indicating all hope is lost,
And his mouth was ever so silent,
Even the greatest detectives alive,
Or even the fictitious Mr Holmes,
Can never deduce a thing or two,
About holes in his atrophied heart.

Praise to the One



All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the Worlds,
Other than whom there is no deity, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence,
Other than whom there is no deity, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful,
Other than whom there is no deity, the Most High, the Most Great,
Other than whom there is no deity, the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed,
Who in whose hand is dominion, and He is over all things competent,
Who in whose hand is goodness, and He is over all things competent,
To Him is due all praise throughout the heavens,
And to Him is due all praise throughout the earth,
And to Him is due all praise what is between them,
And to Him is due all praise in every era,
And to Him is due all praise in every tongue,
And to Him is due all praise in every time and second,
He is praised by what is in the heavens and what is on the earth and what is between them and what is under the soil,
Those who carry the Throne and those around it exalt with praise of their Lord,
And there is not a thing except that it exalts by His praise but you do not understand their way of exalting,
And so to Him is due all praise for creating his creation,
And to Him is due all praise for arranging the matter of His creation,
And to Him is due all praise for what He taught, for what He gave, for what He blessed,
To Him is due all praise for His favours upon us,
To Him is due all praise in every situation,
And we seek refuge with Allah from the situation of the people of Hell,
He is the First, thus no one is before Him,
He is the Last, thus no one is after Him,
He is the Outer, thus no one is above Him,
He is the Inner, thus no one is below Him,
He who established above His Throne,
He who contained around His dominion,
He knows whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth,
And whatever is between them, and whatever is under the earth,
He knows what is in us and we do not know what it is in Him and He is the Knower of the unseen,
He is most knowing of you when He produced you from the earth and when you were foetuses in the wombs of your mothers. So do not claim yourselves to be pure; He is most knowing of who fears Him,
It is He who forms you in the wombs however He wills. There is no deity except Him, the Exalted in Might, the Wise,
Does He who created not know? He is the Subtle, the Acquainted,
And with Him are the keys of the unseen; none knows them except Him. And He knows what is on the land and in the sea. Not a leaf falls but that He knows it. And no grain is there within the darknesses of the earth and no moist or dry thing but that it is written in a clear record,
He has encompassed all things in mercy, knowledge, favour, and generosity,
Lord of everything and sovereign,
In His hand is the realm of all things and to Him we return and to Him is our final destination,
And so to Him is due all praise and all thanks and all of the best compliments.
