Date: July 2020
Duration: 0 hours 40 minutes
This collection of poems teaches that God should be the center of worship of believers in God. The poems deal with friendship with and love of God. As well as religious matters such as living a simple life. They are rhyming yet educational and are suited to all ages. The reader is not required to have much of an understanding of Islam as belief in God is universal and mostly well understood. Some poems are more religiously heavy than others, and some can be thought of as not necessarily religious.
Here is an excerpt of one of the lighter poems:
“You must love love,
For the love of love you love,
And love loves you,
So do its lovers love you,
For love always loves its lover,
And love does not love
Except a lover,
For you love this that you love it all,
In love with love no love you waste at all,”
Here is one of the heavier poems:
I am a seeker of truth, and I know not everything, so I am knowledgeable.
I am knowledgeable, so I put ethics above knowledge.
I am ethical, so I put faith in God above ethics.
I am faithful to God, so I put God above everything.
