A Dark and Silent Night

A Dark and Silent Night

By (Mawlana) Junayd Makda

In the cover of a dark and silent night
I awake from my sleep to put things right
I contemplate over my evil past
As I think this moment could be my last

My heart softens with regret and sorrow
With fear at what awaits tomorrow
Raising my hands, I ask him to forgive
Who knows how long I have to live

As the flow of tears rush down my cheeks
I feel myself to be so weak
The silence is now of helpless cries
As now there’s time for no more lies

My life I know I’ve truly wasted
The punishment for which shall surely be tasted
But I know the mercy of my rabb is great
So I say to my self “it’s never too late”

The time I have left, I’ll make sure I use
To the call of shaytaan, I’ll surely refuse
By living my life the way my Prophet showed
Thereby securing a peaceful abode

Allah I beg you, forgive me now
Keep me forever with imaan now
Grant me shade on the day I will rise
Grant me entry to paradise
