A beautiful poem – I’m Malakul Maut

It was early in the morning at four,
When death knocked upon a bedroom door.

Who is there? The sleeping one cried.
I’m Malkul Maut (Angel Of Death), let me inside.

At once, the man began to shiver,
As one sweating in deadly fever,

He shouted to his sleeping wife,
Don’t let him take away my life.

Please go away, O Angel of Death!
Leave me alone; I’m not ready yet.

My parents and family on me depends,
Give me a chance, O please prepense!

The angel knocked again and again,
Friend! I’ll take your life without a pain,

Tis your soul Allah requires,
I come not with my own desires..

Bewildered, the man began to cry,
O Angel I’m so afraid to die,

I’ll give you gold and be your slave,
Don’t send me to the unlit grave.

Let me in, O Friend! The Angel said,
Open the door; get up from your bed,

If you do not allow me in,
I will walk through it, like a Jinn.

The man held a gun in his hand,
Ready to defy the Angel’s stand..

I’ll point my gun, towards your head,
You dare come in; I’ll shoot you dead.

By now the Angel was in the room,
Saying, O Friend! Prepare for you doom.

Foolish man, Angels never die,(except when Allah will give death to everyone on day of kayamat)
Put down your gun and do not sigh.
Why are you afraid! Tell me O man,
To die according to Allah’s plan?
Come smile at me, do not be grim,
Be Happy, to return to Him.

O Angel! I bow my head in shame;
I had no time to take Allah’s Name.

From morning till dusk, I made my wealth,
Not even caring for my own health.

Allah’s command I never obeyed,
Nor five times a day I ever prayed.

Ramadan came and a Ramadan went,
But I had no time to repent.

The Hajj was already FARD on me,
But I would not part with my money.

All charities I did ignore,
Taking usury more and more.

Sometimes I sipped my favorite wine,
With flirting women I sat to dine…

O Angel! I appeal to you,
Spare my life for a year or two.

The Laws of Quran I will obey,
I’ll begin my SALAT this very day.

My Fast and Hajj, I will complete,
And keep away from self-conceit.

I will refrain from usury,
And give all my wealth to charity,

Wine and wenches I will detest,
Allah’s oneness I will attest.

We Angels do what Allah demands,
We cannot go against His commands..

Death is ordained for everyone,
Father, mother, daughter or son.

I’m afraid this moment is your last,
Now be reminded, of your past,

do understand your dreadful fears,
But it is now too late for your tears.

You lived in this world, two score and more,
Never did to you, your people adore.

Your parents, you did not obey,
Hungry beggars, you turned away.

Your two ill-gotten, female offspring,
In nightclubs, for livelihood they sing.

Instead of making many more Muslims,

You made your children non-Muslims?

You did ignore the Mua'dhin Adhaan,

Nor did you read the Holy Quran.

Breaking promises all your life,
Backbiting friends, and causing strife

From hoarded goods, great profits you made,

And for your poor workers, you underpaid.

Horses and cars were your leisure,
Moneymaking was your pleasure.

You ate vitamins and grew more fat,
With the very sick, you never sat.

A pint of blood you never gave,
Which could a little baby save?

O Human, you have done enough wrong,

You bought good properties for a song.

When the farmers appealed to you,
You did not have mercy, tis true.

Paradise for you? I cannot tell,
Undoubtedly you will dwell in hell.

There is no time for you to repent,
I’ll take your soul for which I am sent.

The ending however, is very sad,
Eventually the man became mad

With a cry, he jumped out of bed,
And suddenly, he fell down dead.

O Reader! Take moral from here,
You never know, your end may be near

Change your living and make amends
For heaven, on your deeds depends.

if this poem inspires you,
It can help someone too.

At least take some time, and do not ban
And send it to as many people as you can.

This poem may change many lives,
And Allah may have for you a great surprise.

Ahlul Bayt in Noah's Ark

During the month of July 1951 a team of Russian archaeologist experts, were surveying the Valley of Kaaf. Perhaps they were busy in finding a new mine. They noticed a few pieces of rotten wood at a place. The group officer started digging the place. To his surprise he found heaps of wood pressed there under the earth. Experts by observing a few layers speculated that these woods are extraordinary and possess obscure mystery. 

They excavated the place with deep interest. They found quite a good amount of wood and many other things. They also found a long rectangular wooden plate. The experts were surprised to observe that this particular plate ad measuring 14" x 10", was in far better condition among other wood which were on the verge of decomposition, due to aging. After investigation at the end of 1952, experts came to the conclusion that this particular plate belonged to Noah’s Ark, which had rested on the peak of Mount Calff (Judy). And the plate, on which a few words of some ancient language were inscribed, was fixed on the Ark. 

After it was proved that the wood found in the excavation are that of the Noah’s Ark, the curiosity as to what was written on the wooden plate was aroused. A board of experts was appointed by the Russian Government under its Research Department to investigate the language of the wooden plate. The Board started its work from the 27th of February 1953. Following were the members of this board:

Prof. Solomon (Sula Nouf), Professor of Languages, Moscow University
Prof. Ifahan Kheeno, scholar in ancient languages, Luluhan College, China
Mr. Mishaou Lu Farug. Officer I/c fossils, manager of ancient monuments
Mr. Taumol Goru, Professor of Languages, Cafezud/Kivzo College
Prof. De Pakan, Professor of ancient monuments, Lenin Institute
Mr. M. Ahmad Colad, Manager of general excavations and discoveries, Zitcomen Research Association
Major Cottor/Kolotov, Head of Stalin University

So these seven experts after eight months of research come to the conclusion that this plate was of the wood used in making Noah’s Ark and that the Prophet Noah had put this plate on his Ark for the safety of the Ark and for receiving favor of God. 

In the center of the plate, there is a drawing of a palm shape on which some words of ancient Saamaani language are written. Mr. N. F. Max, Expert, Ancient Languages, Britain (Manchester), has translated the words written on the wooden plate, in English as follows:

“O my Lord, my helper! Keep my hand with mercy and with your Holy Bodies, Mohammed, Alia, Fatima, Shabbar (Hassan) , and Shabbir (Hussain). They are all biggest and honorable.”
The world established for them Help me by their names. You can return to right. 

People were surprised to learn these writings. They were surprised as to how this particular plate after centuries of exposition to nature did not decompose but maintained its form. The plate is still preserved at the Center of Fossils Research Moscow, Russia. If you ever have a chance to visit Russia you would be able to see the actual plate, and it will consolidate your faith in Ahl-ul-Bait. 

The Soviet Union has now hidden the plate and it is no longer under public view. Below are pictures from the researcher’s book.

The translation was documented in the following news Papers:

From a hadith of our Prophet, the following is quoted:

Prophet Mohammed (S. A. W.) said: “My family is like Noah’s Ark. Whoever embarked on it was saved. Whoever missed it drowned.”
