“Eid al -Adha”-Festival of the Sacrifice-‘Bakr-eid’ is to day
A great and holy day all over the Muslim World -Festival day
Ibrahim ready to sacrifice his son- an act of submission
To HIS command-God accepted and blessed in great appreciation!
To share our pleasures with others and sharing their pains true is Divine
Islamic families share the sacrificed animal and remain
Satisfied with one third to them, one third to friends, relatives- the last
One third to the poor and needy- principle of sharing pleasure fast!
Ashahadunna la ilaha illillahu
Asahadunna Mohammadu Rasulillahi
Sing in praise of Allah sure five times
Spare one fifth of what you earn
For those who suffer hard all times
Make them happy with what you can!
Polygamy surely not a ban
Without which happily live I can
Sunflower plant holds only one
Never a second flower born in its stem!
Allah is undoubtedly great!
Asahadunna la ilaha illillahu
To me Allah and Allah alone is God!
Asha ha duanna Mohammadu Rasulillahi
Prophet Mohammed last messenger of Allah!
Come rush to namaz
Get deliverance from the pain of Hell!
La ilaha illillahee
Allah is holy and great!
Day is gone and time for namaz
Call is heard from the holy tower
What a great mystic experience
Godly light from sacred Mecca
Heavenly light from holy Bethleham
Divine light from hallowed Himalayas
All flash through mind’s layers!
Allah, Christ and Maheshwara
Blessing me fine to reach the Goal
Goal when reached redeems the soul
Through love and piety, peace and poise
Compassion and universal brotherhood all to rejoice!
Hayya lal fala
Get me the deliverance from the pains of hell!
Bismillah irrehiman nirrahim
Most merciful and benevolent Allah!
