2 Inspiring Poems About The Holy Qur'an

Bismillahi rahmani raheem,
The Holy Qur'an inspiring poemsI stumbled upon two inspiring poems about The Holy Qur'an (Koran) yesterday in this lovely website called, SparklyWater.com. They are not only beautiful but very evocative. So I thought I'll share them with you through my blog.

This first poem called, "The Miracle of the Qur'an," is almost like a poetically written introduction to The Holy Qur'an.

The Miracle of the Qur'an

Brothers and sisters, to increase your Iman
Read the Miracle - read the Qur'an
Recite it everyday and to recite it be proud
For the word 'Qur'an' means to recite aloud
And this is to know - for those who are keener:
Around 28 Surahs were revealed in Madinah
The Book from Allah - the Lord of the worlds
Over 6000 verses / 77,000 words
Read it with respect - notice the auras
Al-Fatiha to An-Nás - all 114 Surahs
In this Book, 25 Prophets are mentioned by name
Came at different times, but the message the same
The verses revealed over a 23 year span
Sent from Allah, through an angel to man
He gave us a message and this is Islam
So read the Miracle - read the Qur'an


This second poem called, "The Holy Qur'an," made me very sad. It's a reflection about the way we treat the world's greatest treasure...

The Holy Qur'an

I am a Book in elegant prints
To know my name, here are some hints:
Rich in cover and nicely bound
In hearts of Muslims I am rarely found
High on a shelf I am usually kept
Forgotten and neglected, I am left
With respect I do get lots of kiss
My main point is what they always miss
At times I am used for phoney swear
My true use though is very rare
A Miracle I am that can change the world
All one has to do is heed my word
I am your saviour, I am your guide
So come and take heed, come and abide
I have wisdom, I have treasure
So much so, there is no measure
Right from wrong is my fame
Holy Qur'an is my name


If you like these 2 poems you might also like reading the other poems, especially the poem called, "Qur'an and the TV Guide." Also check out the great Islamic pictures in the 'Picture Section'. They are AWESOME...

THE OPENING CHAPTER opens the door
THE HEIFER is sitting on the floor
THE FAMILY OF IMRAN is remembered
By THE WOMEN devout and covered.

-
THE TABLE SPREAD and all things set
And outside THE CATTLE leisurely ate
THE HEIGHTS in peace and mercy scaled
THE SPOILS OF WAR evenly shared.

-
REPENTANCE sought and IMMUNITY granted
JONAH, the God-fearing, praised and chanted
PROPHET HUD spread the message of God
And JOSEPH propagated it in deed and word.

-
THE THUNDER rages on non-believers
ABRAHAM leads the row of worshippers
THE ROCKY TRACT notwithstanding
THE BEE extracts honey unending.

-
THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, all Arabs and Muslims
Go to THE CAVE, and become Alims
MARY, the pure brings forth Isa
And all-round heard TA HA.

-

THE PROPHETS are messengers holy
THE PILGRIMAGE performed at shrines holy
THE BELIEVERS flock for annual event
And purified, see THE DIVINE LIGHT.

-
THE CRITERION is to bow to the will of God
THE POETS sing the praises clear and loud
THE ANTS show the devotion and hard work
And THE NARRATION continues in light and dark.

-
THE SPIDER weaves strong web of gold
THE ROMANS too see the events unfold
THE WISE bestow in all the wisdom commanded
And prostrate in ADORATION humbly bowed.

-
THE CONFEDERATES come together (accomplice)
THE CITY OF SABA is in a state of bliss
THE ORIGINATOR OF CREATION AND THE ANGELS look
YASIN read by devout from the Holy Book.

-
In mosques are rows THOSE RANGED IN RANKS
ABBREVIATED LETTERS orated in fronts and backs.
The devout pray in THE GROUPS
HE WHO FORGIVES has THE BELIEVERS high and ups.

-

ABBREVIATED LETTERS occur again and again
CONSULTATION is better than one's decision
GOLD ADORNMENTS are gift from Almighty
SMOKE OR MIST surrounds the city.

-

BOWING THE KNEE to prostrate
On the WINDING SAND-TRACTS
THE PROPHET leads the devout in adoration
THE VICTORY leads to jubilation.

-
THE INNER APARTMENTS are safe and conceal
And again the ABBREVIATED LETTER reveal
THE WINDS THAT SCATTER are blowing fast
Shaking all everything along THE MOUNT.

-
The night appears along with THE STAR
THE MOON sheds light near and far
ALLAH MOST GRACIOUS surveys His creation
THE INEVITABLE EVENT is in the motion.

-
IRON like pious safeguard against evil
THE WOMAN, WHO PLEADS is giving a call
THE GATHERING OR BANISHMENT has assimilated
THE WOMAN TO BE EXAMINED is acquitted.

-

THE BATTLE ARRAY is imposing to look at
THE FRIDAY ASSEMBLY has pious, holy and devout
THE HYPOCRITES shy away and scatter
MUTUAL LOSS OR GAIN is all that matter.

-

DIVORCE is final solution in difficult situation
And some are HOLDING SOMETHING TO BE FORBIDDEN
DOMINION of heaven and earth rests with Him
PEN notes the events nice or grim.

-
Everyone is aware of THE SURE REALITY
THE WAYS OF ASCENT for their ability
NOAH took the believers to safety
THE JINN are present among humanity.

-
Those, FOLDED IN GARMENTS are safeguarded
The ONE WRAPPED UP is secured
THE RESURRECTION is the ultimate event
MAN AND TIME are resigned to this fact.

-
THOSE SENT FORTH will eventually return
THE (GREAT) NEWS reveals the concern
THOSE, WHO TEAR OUT are grouping up
HE FROWNED at them and their cup.

-

THE FOLDING UP has taken place
THE CLEAVING ASUNDER makes people race
NO DEALING IN FRAUD, is the warning
THE RENDING ASUNDER is their ending.

-
THE ZODIACAL SIGNS predict the nature
THE NIGHT VISITANT is seen for sure
THE MOST HIGH is held in reverence
THE OVERWHELMING EVENT has forbearance.

-
Night has given way to DAWN
THE CITY is bathed in light and sun
THE SUN is shining bright as ever
THE NIGHT, its darkness will return never.

-
THE GLORIOUS MORNING LIGHT shines
THE EXPANSION works on firs and pines
THE FIG is firmly rooted in soil
READ OR PROCLAIM was the first call.

-
THE NIGHT OF POWER OR HONOUR comes
It is THE CLEAR EVIDENCE, which hums
THE CONCLUSION occurs, when sins increase
AND THOSE, THAT RUN find no peace.

-

THE DAY OF CLAMOUR and dissent rise
PILING UP and setting it are wise
TIME THROUGH THE AGES has shown
THE SCANDAL-MONGER will always bemoan.

-

THE ELEPHANT, the mighty animal
Was present during THE QURAISH's rule
NEIGHBOURLY NEEDS should be given preference
Happily then, Almighty bestows in ABUNDANCE.

-
THOSE, WHO REJECT FAITH will be punished
Whose HELP will they seek when banished?
THE FLAME of hell will be their home.
Believers have PURITY (OF FAITH) with them.

-
THE DAWN will be for the believers alone
THE MANKIND survives on faith alone.

-
AMEEN
