Abraham's Faith - Poem by Fatima Obaid
faith should be like Abraham
who didn't follow the majority
instead himself searched for truth
'Truth' that lead him to Majesty
seeing his love to discover God
made him very dearer to God
God did show him realm
realm of heaven and earth
so that he would be among the certain
certain who have faith and are the believers
first step he took was asking his father
do you take idols as deities?
indeed i see you and your parties
deeply falling in manifest error
To find God he looked into the nature
For there are signs for observer in nature
so when the night reaches
Covering him with darkness
looking at a shining star made him speak
this is my lord! this is my lord
but watching the set and diminishing of its light
he spoke to himself with full might
i like not those who disappear
and when the moon appears
with bright sparkling light
he did have say
this is my lord
but seeing it, his words were
'unless my lord guides me,
i'll surely be among the people gone astray'
and when his eyes saw sun rising
ending the darkest night
his lips had some words
'this is my lord this is greater'
and when the sun also sets
he stood and turned to his nation
o my people! indeed indeed
i am free from what you associate with Allah
i have turned my face toward 'He'
who creates the heaven and the earth
inclining toward the truth
I'm not from those who associate with Allah
it was the faith of Abraham
that didn't let the burning fire hurt him
God gave order to fire for him
to loose its pride and be cold
once he watched a dream
dream of slaughtering his love 'son'
hearing his dream the son didn't scream
instead humbly came to knife on the slaughtering extreme
surely Abraham was tested
every time by God, in faith
he succeeded every time, in faith
God called him 'khalel-ul-Allah'
for his strong faith
*khalel-ul-Allah- it is an arabic title given to Abraham(mercy be upon him) by Allah which means 'The Friend of Allah'.
