A POEM TO THINK ABOUT

22 05 2007

They lie on  the table side by side –

The Holy Quran and the TV Guide.

One is well  worn and cherished with pride.

Not the Quran, but the TV Guide.

One is  used daily to help folks decide.

Not the Quran, but the TV Guide.

As the  pages are turned, what shall they see?

Oh, what does it matter, turn on the  TV

So they open the book in which they confide.

No, not the Quran, but the  TV Guide.

The Word of Allah is seldom read.

Maybe a verse before they fall  into bed.

Exhausted and sleepy and tired as can be.

Not from reading the  Quran, from watching TV

So then back to the table side by side,

Lie the  Holy Quran and the TV Guide.

No time for prayer, no time for the Word,

The  plan of Istiqama is seldom heard.

But forgiveness of sin, so full and  free,

Is found in the Quran, not on TV
