A poem glorifying God, Allah, on the first of The Ten special days in the month of Hajj. The Ninth being the Day of Hajj when some of mankind fulfil their obligation to perform the Pilgrimage to Makkah! (1437 / 2016)

 


Allahu akbar!

God is the greatest of all

Greater than any mind can see

His dominion extends over land & sea

 

Allahu akbar!

God is the greatest of all

On Him I totally depend

My own way I cannot wend

 

Laa ilaa ha illa Allah!

There is no true god except Allah!

Greater than you or me

Absent from His sight, we can never be

 

Allahu akbar

God is the greatest of all

In front of Him I fall

Answering His sublime call

 

Allahu akbar!

God is the greatest of all

In this holy month, we are!

His glory, from our lips not far

 

Wa lillahi al-hamd!

To God belongs every praise and gratitude

For every pulsation of my heart

And for every breath from my start.
