On Ramadan

Of Clay and Water made are we,
In the Heart of hearts God made our souls to be,
Empty yourself of worldly attachment,
Let yourself be truly free.

Hunger is the flame that burns the dross,
Thirst, the bellow that fans the flame,
Righteous Act and Godly Thought is food for Hearts,
Return to God, feeling no shame.

Ramadan is a month of fasting true,
The reward is not reserved for few.
Lower the gaze and be not unkind,
In your heart find peace divine.

Half of faith is charity,
The other half sincerity,
Fast with intentions pure,
And in Ramadan attain piety.

-Ahmed Hussain-
