The Holy Quran in our Lives
The Quran is our Holy Book!

Search it’s pages & you will find
Answers to problems of every kind!

What to do and how to live?
What to take, when, how to give?

What is right and what is wrong?
A concise clear cut Message strong

What’s halal, haram and in between?
Major, minor sins defined and seen…

Surah Shams, yes, it says all!
By contrasting earth-sky, sun-moon, day-night
Clear distinction between wrong and right!

The story of Isa-Ibne Maryum’s miraculous birth..
His amazing brief life upon this Earth!

Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice
To gain Allah’s pleasure at any price!

And Yusuf forgiving his brothers one & all!
Amazing example of forgiveness to recall!

Musa & Muhammad (saw), two of a kind!
What nobler examples, where else could we find?..

Which other long book could you memorize by heart?
You would give up before you even start!

Yet, memorized by thousands for a long time!
The melodious meaningful verses sublime!
None other the Holy Quran…..
