in patience, i await The One
in Whose Hands lies all affairs
i am steadfast in remembrance
offering charity and prayers
my hands work diligently
toiling, to pass the time
my trust is firm in Al Mumit
and so retribution will soon be mine.
have not you heard duas of women
who cry out in pain and stress;
grieving mothers who have been wronged
forced to carry on, oppressed
reach the ears of Ar Rahman, Most Great
Corrector of Evil Deeds?
you may disbelieve in my Al Adl
but The Truth will supersede.
thirty-one years of my investments
stolen away with hugs and smiles…
my rage remains incessant
there’s a debt to pay for my sweet child!
i will not turn the other cheek
did you believe that i was weak???
Sabr will manifest what is rightly due;
The Justice that i seek.
