Journey to Jannah
By Zeynab Mohamed Abdi- Dahir
I am tired of all this Drama and Fitnah!
It hurts, and its deceiving and frustrating!
How I wish that I would be given Shahadah!
I could slip away unnoticed. Into a deep sleep uninterrupted.
Wake up in a garden of paradise, Be Glad and rejoice!
My face Jubilant and Bright!
Allah the Glorious, full of Might!
His Mercy, covering me completely,
I sink into the soft ground contently.
My best friend at my side, holding my hand.
Telling me stories, of lofty beds and rows of drinks and pillows lined for a luxurious feast!
I seem so far away from home, but I’m not afraid in the least.
Who is this friend you ask?
He is my good deeds and I have fulfilled my task!
My Lord had elavated me!
Praise be to him for eternity!
Allah, you have opened a door from Jannah for me!
Oh the wonder and delight, no I eye can see!
The fragrance wafting through the dazzling door!
Oh, I can’t bear the suspense anymore!
I yearn to reunite with my family whom I adore!
In the life of the Dunya I often say, I can’t bear the separation anymore!
In the life of the Barzakh, I hope to say,
Oh Kind and Merciful Creator, make the hour happen, please make it happen now!
Alhamdulilah! Praise be to you .
To you alone we Bow!
