something beautiful I was recently sent..
I place my hands on the ground carefully My fingernails are cut short and round and precisely cleaned My skin is smooth and youthful over my hands These hands that Allah has created have been through numerous incidents-there is a burn mark on the left wrist and a scar on the right With these hands, i have taken what did not belong to me, With these hands, I have hurt my brothers in a fit of anger, WIth these hands, I have thrown things and destroyed stuff. With these hands, I have given sadaqa, With these hands, I have comforted my mother, With these hands, I have held the Qur'an as I memorize its ayats. These hands will speak for their actions on the Day of Judgement.
My eyes are an inch away from the ground I blink and my lashes brush the ground My brown eyes, medium-sized, with short lashes are creations of Allah. With these eyes, I have watched inappropriate scenes on television With these eyes, I have seen people dressed improperly, With these eyes, I have gazed time and again on the faces of males. With these eyes, I have looked longingly at the Kaaba, With these eyes, I have looked lovingly at my mother's face, With these eyes, I have read ayats of the Qur'an. These eyes will speak for what they have seen on the Day of Judgement.
I place my forehead on the ground The ground feels rough on my soft skin. Inside this head, I have thought many private thoughts, Inside this head, I have thought of skipping salat, Inside this head, I have thought ill of my family and friends, Inside this head, I have created gossip to spread of others Inside this head, I have decided to wear hijaab. Inside this head, I have thought of ways to spread Islam, Inside this head, I have chosen to stay on the right path This head will be questioned about it's thought on the Day of Judgement.
My heart beats inside of me It's rhythm beats 'Al-lah, Al-lah' It beats inside of me all day long. The feeling I have in my heart almost bursts out of me as I bow in sujood. O Allah, forgive me for my sins, reward me for my deeds and keep me on the right path.
