Brief Trip

Bismillahi wa salatu wa salamu ‘ala Rasulillah wa ‘ala jami’il ambiyai wal-mursalin wa ‘ala ahlihi wa sahabihi ajmain, amin.

 

Life here is temporal however long

And death you must taste like billions before

We are on a caravan that may soonest arrive

O my brothers rise from sleep

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur-Rasulullah

 

Live all your moments with your end in view

By reflecting sincerely on your imminent end

Those who live here lost to the world

Will surely be losers in the world to come

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur-Rasulullah

 

Akhirah is there in front of you

To the men of wisdom it’s never far

You are a traveler never forget

Your stay is temporal you’ll soonest depart

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur-Rasulullah

 

You are on a journey towards your Lord

O my brothers get prepared

Whoever is travelling here on the earth

Prepares the utmost to ease his path

The longest of journeys will soonest be here

Take precautions without delay

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur-Rasulullah

 

Every believer returns to his Lord

Like a crook brought in chains

Or the obedient honoured with crown

You have the choice between the two

Your moments at present determine your end

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur-Rasulullah

 

Your Lord has mentioned in Suratul Yunus

And for some moments lend me your ears

‘Those who rest not their hope in Us

But got deceived by the glitters of life

Will be in Hell without an end’

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur-Rasulullah
