Deaf dumb and blind by Ali Abdul-AkbarDeaf dumb and blind

Deaf dumb and blind in the fire stuck standing

 

Free from evil whispering, now blessed with clear hearing

 

What’s that sweet sound? That splendour who’s sharing?  

 

So perfectly tuned, a small child was reading

 

What’s that by his chest that he’s grasping and loving?

 

It was the Qur’an

 

Dumb and blind

 

Now blessed with clear sight

 

No veil on my eyes which was once wrapped so tight

 

What’s that pure structure such width and such height?

 

So perfectly constructed and shimmering with light

 

 It’s attracting so many from morning to night

 

It was the Ka’ba

 

             Dumb now blessed with understanding

 

                  No seal on my heart, my hearts now absorbing 

 

              My love for Islam has started expanding

 

            So I embark on a journey with the Qur’an that I’m handling

 

            For the blessed place of Makka to see the Ka’ba I’m landing

 

               Once deaf dumb and blind in the fire stuck standing

 

              I thank you Allah for this blessing so dazzling.
