... in response to your Sujood

This world is nothing but darkness illusioned
Temptations belittling the lawfully provisioned
Enlighten your heart to reflect the rays far away 
Enshrouded those remain by hopelessness and dismay 

Strength and Guidance required to travel this land
Are aforehand provided, nothing here is unplanned 
This world can never be comforting, it is a complicated test
It’s only a pathway steadily treading towards the Best 

There will be days of longing and moments of despair
When fear envelopes you and life seems unfair
When you are hurt repeatedly and confusions surround
When you can no longer stand, find peace on the ground

Whisper prostrating to reach The All-Hearing 
He knows your suffering, He is The All-Knowing
He is the All-Powerful, has control over everything 
If He sees you walking, He comes to you running

With complete faith when you raise hands begging
He hates to leave them empty, without answering
Know that Dua is Your ultimate weapon of power
A beautiful gift from Him to battle His Qadr

He is The Creator of everything, He is The Almighty
Trust Him blindly that He has a Sovereign Remedy
When you associate no partner and seek only from Him
Be assured of His help, of His Mercy eternally sublime

Your tears are not worthy of these worldly sights
He treasures them when you hand Him all your plights
He loves you so very much, for He is Al-Wudood
He will fix everything in response to your Sujood

I am nobody, but a stranger, only a simple wayfarer,
My journey is this life till I reach the Hereafter..
Traveling all along the footsteps of my Teacher
For I have to, in time, reach the destination promised by MY
