Are you ready ?
by Okasha Naqvi (12 Years)
Are you ready
or do you think you'll live for ever
or die tomorrow, you can't be sure but let's think
what would happen if you died !
You will, perhaps, be mourned by many
you will see the Angel of death
and will take your final breath
you'll awaken with layers of soil on top
at the bottom of a dank, fearful narrowness
You will think Oh No!!
I spent all my life paying attention to stocks
yearning to see my money grow
Now. how will I answer?
Am I ready?
do I really know?
Your deeds wil be placed right in front of your eyes
Your limbs will talk
and narrate what you had been doing
they will tell all secrets,
and all those dark and
vengeful lies !
How about the good deeds
Saum, Salat and Charity
Ah, they are in such meagre amount
You can't go back to make up
All you cared for was the Money in the account
Questions will have to be answered of everything you did
Sins will be re-paid
sins you wish you never did.
You're screaming now--
your being tortured, no mercy spared
NO one to hear your apologies and pleas
the only thing that could help was the good deeds.
You wil taste fire
The flames raise higher
Bu this is not the end
you are to answer to your Lord on the day of Reckoning
when the whole world will attend
Two places will then lie before you:
Hell with its rising flames
its fuel, men and stones,
or Heaven with its Celestial touch
will sooth you to the bone
Now let's zoom back to where you are standing now,
My brothers and sisters
don't wait for tomorrow
we must start now!
Don't wait for tomorrow
because life is so uncertain
and always keep the question in
what if you died....!
