You are a murder spilling
Blood indiscriminately stains
These children played beneath
A tyrant who ordered the slaughter slow
enough to feel the pain of limbs
Ripped and the sinew beneath your nails

You have murdered a nation
No earthly trial will do, you have
Butchered a people never met
And you cry the false tears of regret

Your palms are the sweaty red of
Adolescence and fruitless speech
Delayed prayers as fajr meets
You through curtains closed
Minded opinion, rationale of no benefit
Incessant need to stare with eyes of arrows
Poisoned acts of innovations
Quran whose explanation is unread
Completely until someone is dead and we
Clothe heads for a time to be seen and
We lie and we cheat and he beats
His mother into tears of nights
when he is never there because he
Drinks the blood of his victims
Heads spinning , palms wrongly read
As if to say through the smoke that
We feed the youth with idleness and curiosity
To kill the cats too as if
this all wasn't enough

We have murdered the innocent
We cry for Gaza , for Palestine
Cry for yourself as you stand
With unrepented sins and its
Corruption sits inside
Clasped, foolish hands

"Allah does not punish the individuals for the sins of the community until they see the evil spreading among themselves, and while they have the power to stop it, do not do so."

God commands justice and doing good and giving to relatives. And He forbids indecency and doing wrong and tyranny. He warns you so that hopefully you will pay heed.
Qur'an 16: 90

The lustful gaze is a poisoned arrow from the devil.


  1. Wonderful SubhanAllah. It is almost as if we are being destroyed not only from the outside, but we are destroying ourselves as well...MashaAllah just scanned the verses again and had a sudden realization, we have indeed murdered our own brothers and sisters with our own unrepented and repetitive sins.

    1. Exactly- Why cry for our brothers and sisters and then not wake up for fajr . It is our very sins that lead to corruption and then to the killing of our own people .
      Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. We in the muslim world are well and truly becoming our own source of destruction may Allah protect us from the evil of our selves.

  2. its sad how we spend time polishing our exteriors until they're gorgeous while inside a parasite thrives and filth presides. Indeed we are contributing to our own destruction. Do our souls deserve this? Shouldnt we hold them in higher esteem than this?
