Theme – Allah’s Amazing Creation

Judges’ comments:

A well thought out poem that was original in tone, covered the theme extremely well and had a flow that made it an easy and pleasing read.

 

The Qur’an will Complain

You keep me on a shelf, that’s special,
But if you read me, it’s beneficial,
You keep me there, all day and night
But if you read me, it’ll make you bright,
On the day of judgment, the Quran will complain of you,

I am the Quran, you probably know,
I was sent, when the population of Muslims was quite low,
I contain many words from Allah the God,
Even still the things people believe is rather odd,
On the day of judgment, the Quran will complain of you,
But Allah made everything, there’s no question in that,
From big things like the sun, to small things like a bat,
Have you ever wondered how everything was made,
Or asked the question when you prayed,
On the day of judgment, the Quran will complain of you,

Have you ever seen the luminous moon,
At the end of each month, it looks like a giant balloon,
Have you ever heard the praying of the birds,
Their loyalty can be explained in many words,
On the day of judgment, the Quran will complain of you,

Have you ever seen the amazing animals,
Lots of them are mentioned in the Quran and our manuals,
Have you ever seen the seas and oceans,
Much of it’s water is used for our ablutions,
On the day of judgment, the Quran will complain of you,

Have you ever seen the wonderful plants,
Their strange beauty can put you in a trance,
Have you ever seen the great sky above,
Where many birds fly, like robins or doves,
On the day of judgment, the Quran will complain of you,

Have you ever seen the different trees,
Some of them are a habitat to the bees,
If you follow me, you will encounter happiness,
In this temporary world, I will grant you peacefulness,
On the day of judgment, the Quran will complain of you,

If you follow me, you will have a happy future,
As you grow your curiosity will nurture,
If you follow me, I will bring you luck,
I’ll help you seek what you need when you are stuck,
On the day of judgment, the Quran will complain of you,

Read me now, that you’ve read this,
And avoid the whisper of Satan’s hiss,
So make the right choice in everything you do
And remember that Allah made you,
On the day of judgment, the Quran will complain of you
