Glory be to God


When you look up to the blue sky,
and you see the birds fly,
Glory be to God,
Glory be to God,
Glory be to God.

When you see the mountains tall-
man's scyscrapers seem so small,
Glory be to God,
Glory be to God,
Glory be to God.

In the winter the ground fills with snow-
but in the spring the leaves begin to grow!
Glory be to God,
Glory be to God,
Glory be to God.

When you feel a gentle breeze,
All the troubles on your mind leave.
Glory be to God,
Glory be to God,
Glory be to God.

When you realise God is the Most Kind,
All your sorrows are left behind,
Glory be to God,
Glory be to God,
Glory be to God.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I have been going through some small difficulties recently - I was very sad and confused when this poem entered my mind and made me feel better and so I feel that I should share it with you.

I am a Muslim. The word 'Allah' is arabic for God. In Islam there is no concept of confession as there is in some branches of Christianity. If you choose to convert to Islam by reading the shahada ('I declare that there is no god but Allah and Muhammad [peace be upon him] is the Messenger of Allah') all of your sins before that will be forgiven! I cant emphasize enough what an opportunity that is!

Many areas of the media attempt to portray Islam in a negative light highlighting the activities of extremists and labelling it as 'backwards'. However, Islam is not a country or person - it is a religion. The truth is that Islam does say that you should live a conservative lifestyle - but this is because you are looking forward to the next life.

Peace be with you

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.
