Letter to the Terrorist

(Reflecting upon the tragedy of Paris, and killings without mercy by terrorist groups)

Those who try to damage
the portrait of His creation
with bloodstains,
Will not see Him
when we return to our Homeland.

No one shall use the sword;
valour shines from His;
but will be used against those
who merciless kill,
when our eyes will cease to blink.

On the Day of Qiyamah
those who throw stones at Heaven’s Gate
will find it closed.
He knows best.

But we
like a grain of sand in a desert
have to taste the River
of His Mercy
so that we will see the Ocean
and the gentle rain.

Have mercy upon us,

O Most Merciful of those who show mercy.
