POEMS

Eid is for all

  • Print


-Farid Sayed
Atmosphere is flooded with sin
Of the people poisonous and mean
How the weak without Iman
Can lit the light of Deen?
 
The sky speaks of the pleasure of Eid
For the sake of Musalman
On such a day he is merciless
The companion of shaitan.
 
On this happy day in every house
They cook sweet smelling rice and appetizer
At road side the beggers walk
Carrying the begging bag on shoulder.
 
The wicked show of muscular power
Who doesn't know them?
They buy the best cattle of the market
To compete in the bad game.
 
Forgetting the difference of rich and poor
We will stay happily together
Let the hearts fill up with kindness
Of the mistress and the master.
 
Translation: Anis Fatema
