Grace of Prayer

Some may crave fame,
Some wealth...
Some eternal youth and health,
And, beauty for the vain.

My prayer Allaah(SWT) is none of these
I seek the grace of prayer
A gift so precious and rare.
O' Gardner of my soul,please plant this seed.

Let my every breath be praise,
Let each heartbeat be a reminder
To be more loving and kinder,
Remembering how limited my days...

Help me to pray each day
As if it were my last...
Living now and not in the past
Teach me to walk in the way.

O' Allaah(SWT) let my voice be your voice,
Let your desires be mine,
Let me not waste precious time...
Then my soul shall rejoice.


Thank you for sharing such a graceful prayer with us.


17:36 And pursue not that of which thou hast no knowledge; for every act of hearing, or of seeing or of (feeling in) the heart will be enquired into (on the Day of Reckoning).


This poem is so beautiful & inspiring,Masha Allah....Allah eases the path of those who seek knowledge of Him & His deen.

Dear Wayfarer,

I appreciate the feedback. I only took my shahada on April 8 , 2011. So I am still wading through my new found faith.. I live in a small community and there are no other Muslims nor a Masjid. So , I am learning via the internet and with long distance brothers. Al Azhar University has been such a blessing to me with contact and literature. So please forgive any mistakes in my theology.

Wa Salaam
