Two Eyes

The scene was set,
As the moon lay stagnant,
luminating the dark sky
With its shining bright light
The soft calming breeze
All adds to the chill of night,

With eyes closed shut,
He lets his mind wander,
Into the endless abyss,
created by imagination
He begins to ponder

The creation of man
The point of his existence
The reason the sons of Adam
Were destined upon Earth
From the heavens above

As Fate had it written
That our parents fell prey
To the misdeeds of the devil
Who could never fathom
The reason behind it all

He refused to prostrate
Assuming that he was great
Thus eternal damnation
For a single declination

So Adam was sent
From the heavens above
To a place so distant
As Allah had foretold

As the founding father
For all that is here
A task so great
Even mountains could break
To serve as Khalifah
To prosrate in the name of the Great

Our imminent quest
Our given responsibility
With one common goal
Among the brotherhood of Islam
To merely serve AllaH
As a humble slave,
Just a slave, nothing more...

From a liquid so vile
We cringe at its mention
Yet the miracles of the Lord
Is truly without question

But we tend to forget
Our humble beginnings
As our Lord beseeches us
With blessing after blessing

It is merely a test,
Before we are put to rest
In the darkness of our grave
The angels question His slaves

Who is Your Lord?
A question that may
May or may not
Bring tidings of happiness
Or cries of woe

Two paths lay upon us...
One full of challenges
The other littered with happiness

For whom who have succeeded,
Those who stuck to His path
Will find its tongue obedient
In answering the Ultimate question

While those whom took a wrong turn
Who failed to see the signs
Will face the wrath of the Almighty
For the day will come
Yes indeed as promised
Despite the doubt of some

Who are we to complain?
It is what has been ordained
THe day where ties are broken
The day that strikes fear
In the hearts of many
Some might lose their sanity

In the presence of THe Almighty
Save for the pious
The obedient and the righteous
Those who took heed to the tidings
And kept close the prophet's warnings
Only to those who believe
Only to those who believe

May Allah aid his quest
As life is not but a test
For what's defined as true success
In Jannatul Firdaus he is laid to rest

So open your eyes my friends
For God has given us two
One for the hereafter
Not forgetting Ad-dunia too
