The Greatest Journey

Posted in: Poems

Traveling to the house,
The greatest journey,
Illuminating visages,
Brotherhood and unity,

Covered in their garments,
A sense of purity,
Moving smoothly along,
In close proximity.

Bodies assembled to worship,
Moving about peacefully,
Moving in sync,
Full of activity

The House of Allah,
And amazing beauty!
An honor to be there,
Oh, what a sight to see!

A physical challenge,
A strange burst of energy,
Traveling in order,
In constant uniformity,

The voice of a child,
Reciting so beautifully,
With the Qur’an in his hands,
Looking so seriously,

The recitation of Al-Sodais,
Heard so very clearly,
Echoing through Makkah,
Reverberating through the city,

In Holy Zamzam water,
Bathing jubilantly,
Cleansing their very souls,
Letting their sins go free.

Praising Allah,
Praising constantly,
Here I am, Oh Lord,
Praising communally.

Poet/Author: Iman Mashaal
