In the Name of Allah

In the name of Allah we are born

In His name we live

and in His name we die

Our shadows prostrate to their Creator morning

evening without our consent Birds

and animals usher in the times of prayer

Birds circumambulate the Ka'ba while

migrating birds stretch forth their wings

finding their way by Allah's Mercy

Only to feel unrest and leave once more ever-searching,

traveling discontent until they die

We, also wander some blindly while others see
