There is the sky,
But where are the clouds?
Trials make me sigh
When YOUR help is not nigh.

I have heard much
That YOUR MERCY is such…
No matter how many times
My word I breach,
A believer’s heart
YOU will never ditch

Knot on knot
Are tied to my heart’s bolt

I tried and tried
But so badly I failed

To untie the knot
Is a task that is easy not

There is the sky,
But where are the clouds?
Trials make me sigh
When YOUR help is not neigh.

So quick has gone this month
That 10 (days) is left
From the month
That is 9th

Yet…

In my my ear
comes a prayer
Uttered by the Leader
of the Battle of Badr

‘O Allah! You are Forgiving’
Most Forgiving indeed!

‘And you Love to Forgive’
You are Most Loving Indeed,

‘So forgive Me!’
… a sinner I am indeed!
