deen*

Salah is like a mirror,
reflecting the state of your heart
as you speak to your Lord.
Are you distracted?
Are your words pure?
Be honest with yourself, 
what do you
see?
رب

When my heart eventually breaks,
When the tears finally fall
And when my patience begins to falter,
Guide me, my Lord
And comfort my old soul.
Wipe away my tears,
And strength me in Your deen.

When my soul grows tired,
When this world finally tears me
And when my body begins to ache,
Guide me, my Lord
And take me to Yourself.
Forgive me for what I have done,
And keep my heart on Your deen.
