					IMPRISONED
To every Muslim prisoner, silenced for no just cause…


Imprisoned


The Earth, vast as it is,
Constricted for Me, it has
Like a dead man, in a dead grave
A body sculptered in dirt and sand


I see, only darkness
But at least my eyes have grown accustomed
Friends have disappeared
But at least loneliness is faithful


In Small places and dark rooms
You see, binded and tied
We are chained and locked up
Inside our very minds


No thought can we call our own
No feeling no reason
We are taught what to love,
To hate by television season


What happened to minds of old
That ventured beyond imagination
To untold depths of sea
Pillars of civilisation


That lived for nothing else
Save greatness and virtue
But ensnared minds we are
Living for lusts and evil


Coerced to a way of life
Restricting even reason
Isn’t a wasted youth
To old age treason?
What are the mirths of this World,
Other than a clever trap?
So that a heavy case for each built up
And a tongue of flame caress our backs


You see, Allah is our Witness
With tragedies of Muslims
He knows very well, He does
That we are very well acquainted


We hear the cries of Palestine
The Sorrows of Yemen
The Anguish of Afghanistan
The screams of Muslim Women


But the rumble of my new car
It stifles up her screams
The burden of my mortgage
Means I can’t provide for her needs


Every Muslim wished
If only he could help
But the Dunya is a prostitute
And Shaitaan is her pimp


And so we have caught diseases
Just like STDs
But diseases of the heart you see
But even harder to see


Riba is inescapable
And if not then its dust
But the prison were you dwell
The only dust is, just dust


To tarry to the Masjid
Yes! Even that means
My eyes must fall upon
A woman lacking chastity
And Even if Allah Blessed Us
With strength to lower our gaze
Even there we find Advertisements
Of devilish women, by Shaitaan, made!


How many have been led astray?
Twisted and turned in Dunya’s maze
A beautiful woman enticing
Few men, like Yousef, could keep away


But Allah, Most Merciful, released him
From this, this Dunya’s prison
Keeping him safe, locked up, yet free
A precious, untouched virgin


“The world is a prison for a believer and Paradise for a non-believer.” [Muslim]
