Poem | Reflection on Eid al-Adha

source : news.detik.com

If you want to hear an orchestra whose the echoes are heard all over the world, then listen to that voice.

Allahu akbar Allahu akbar
La ilaha illallahu Allahu akbar
Allahu akbar walillahilham

The universe watches,
listens,
participates in praising Him The Greatest
knock our hearts to contemplate
to look at ourselves
how far do we follow the Prophet Muhammad’s Sunnah?
how far do we emulate the Prophet Ibrahim’s observance
and Prophet Ismail sacrifice?

Just take your time
at least few minutes
to look at yourself
to listen to your heart
are you still being a slave to your lust?

May Eid al-Adha be a momentum for us to get rid of our selfishness and arrogance towards others.

Warm regards.
