Remember Me… I will remember you

When confusion reigns supreme,

When everything appears doubtful,

When darkness surrounds me from everywhere,

When the burden in my heart I cannot bear,

When I’m searching for assurance, desperately so,

When I feel there’s nothing that I really know,

When responsibilities weigh me down so much,

When there’s nothing I look forward to as such,

When I wish I knew how to win,

When I realize I’m practically covered in sin,

I remember Allah, and He remembers me,

It’s that simple, don’t you see?

I call out his name in company and when I’m alone,

He does the same, says a hadith well-known,

He says He’s near when we ask about Him,

He understands each feeling, each wish and whim,

He is Allah, exalted be He and praised beyond measure,

Indeed, in prayer there is infinite pleasure!
