POEM: Sonnet "What You Can Do Is Say Your Du'as / When Silence Is Wisdom"

In the Name of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

When all sorts of events take place worldwide,
When liars are heard and truthful belied,
When those around you can't be called "true friends",
When truth is overshadowed by pretense,

When the trustworthy are misunderstood,
When most acts of kindness are overlooked,
And the majority adore themselves,
While ignorant of those who cry for help,

And your only means to share assistance
Are your faith, du'as, and your life lessons,
Choose to stay quiet when silence is wise,
Then supplicate to God each day and night.

At times, the best thing one can do is pray -
That Truth prevails not just on Judgment Day.

What goes around comes around.
Include all Muslims in your du'as. May Allah the Most Merciful
also guide the misguided to Him. Ameen.
