When people around me reeked,
of the stench of greed and snare;
It was You Allah who came to my aid,
like a waft of fresh air.
When on my face they slammed,
door after another door;
It was You who reached out,
and opened a thousand more!
When the anguish of loss and contriteness,
become too hard to endure;
It is You indeed who lulls me,
into a sleep, serene;secure!
When my world goes down in havoc,
and no moment is that of solace;
it is You who breaks my fall,
and takes me into His embrace!
I searched the world for peace,
my labours all for naught;
peace is you, from you comes peace,
I found it closer than where I sought!
Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest .
