Forgive us our Lord!

Forgive us our Lord!

Forgive us our Lord!

We forgot the way You have shown us

We became devils, while You have created us with love

We became deaf and dumb, while You have blessed us with the power of hearing and speaking

We became blind, while You have filled our eyes with Your Noor* divine

You have given us the soft heart and told us that You live there, but we changed our hearts into stones

You have told us that this world is ephemeral, but we kept on running after it

You have told us to speak up for the oppressed, but we kept shunning Your command

We committed criminal negligence when Your dear slaves were facing atrocities

We closed our eyes when little kids were afraid of bombshells

We didn’t do anything when Your servants were dying of hunger

We didn’t soften our hearts when the right of freedom was snatched from Your dear slaves

Remorseless we became when kids were bathed in blood

We forgot that You are OMNIPRESENT and looking our every move

You know the whispers of heart, we forgot that

We closed our eyes from the vivid sufferings of Your servants


We are afraid of our own breath

We can’t meet our loved ones

We are caged in our homes

The tiniest virus is cutting the thread of our lives

The tiniest virus is eating the mammoth economies

The world has stopped by an invisible virus

We are ashamed of what we have done

Before us was our worldly wealth

But it can’t save us

Only your mercy can protect us

There is no refuge except you

This virus is nothing but what we have earned

Pardon us our Lord!

Pardon us!

You are the Most Merciful and the Most Beneficent

Pardon us our Lord, pardon us!

Only You can remove this curse from us

Forgive us our Lord, and protect us from what we fear and we’re warned off

For You are the Best preserver,

For You are the best preserver,

For You are the best preserver, and the Most Compassionate and the Most Merciful!

Forgive us our Lord,

There is no refuge except you…

  1. “For You are the best preserver, and the Most Compassionate and the Most Merciful!”

  2. Beautiful thoughts and very well expressed princess πŸ’•πŸ‘
    Everything is His grace πŸ™πŸ™
    PS: Sadly today we are united in Fear instead of Love

  3. God and Mother Nature have brought us to our knees for we have been so reckless and irresponsible as humans for centuries now! Evidently, we forgot our duty towards the divine entities, towards our beautiful nature.

    You have written one of the most beautiful prayers, Saba! I hope the Gods listen to it. πŸŒ»πŸ’•β€οΈπŸ€—πŸ’

    Also, I was tired of the sensationalism that’s circulating on WP. As Trump would say- “That’s terrible poetry.” πŸ˜‚

    You did an awesome job! πŸ€—β€οΈ

    1. Thank you so much Aa’eedah for your time and vivid expression πŸ’–
      We not only destroy the nature but also the humans who live here.
      For the insatiable greed of wealth and power strong countries have played and are still playing with the lives of poor people, their only sin that is stifling their right to live is to be born in countries that are rich with natural resources and their incompetent rulers are not able to use them. How long these people keep paying for the mistakes of their rulers???
      I don’t know my words are strong enough or not but this reminds me of the little Syrian girl aged 5 or six, she was bathed in blood, crying and saying that she would tell everything to Allah, she died then(as many others). Am sure God has listened to her…
      These developed countries don’t speak up because they have their business interests.
      Whether it is war torn country or inhumanely lockdown valley of Kashmir, world plays the role of deaf and dumb only..
      May Allah protect us all and give us wisdom and strength to fight with this pandemic, Ameen
      Stay blessedπŸ’–

      1. Ameen

        Allah indeed has listened to His child, you’re absolutely right. It’s so heart-wrenching!
        I wonder how their hearts never bleed in pain after killing their own people, after bombing schools and sacred places and, the brutal list is countless!

        These developed countries are bullies, period. They bully even their own people. The people there are against their own leaders and, these very “smart, intelligent” group of world leaders are against our nature and humanity. Goddammit! This one’s on them as they run the world! They need to correct their ways before it’s too late.

        This is Mother Nature’s wrath! See, how we all are living in “lockdown”, that too all over the world. I hope Her lesson makes us more empathetic and tolerant towards each other.

        You’re awesome, Saba. I am in love with your thought process! My best wishes for you and your family. πŸ€—πŸ’β€οΈπŸ’•πŸ’–πŸŒΊ
        Stay safe. 🌷

      2. You are blessed with positivity.
        Let’s hope and pray for the betterment of our people.
        Thank you so much for your wishes. Sending you even more blessings πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–
        Have a blessed day πŸ’–πŸ€—πŸ’–

  4. Very wonderfully put Saba, you have written this so well. We are reaping what we have sown and I hope we realize this soon. A tiny virus that can’t even be seen has brought the world to it’s knees, but are we listening? I agree with your thoughts here Saba, well done!πŸ™‚πŸ˜ΊπŸŒžπŸ˜»πŸ˜»

    1. Thank you so much Sir Steve for being here 😊
      We listen or not but God has definitely listened to the cries of innocent children.
      Running after the insatiable greed these developed countries have caused havoc to humanity and what a pity is that couldn’t able to stop the silent strikes of the tiniest virus.
      We need to open our eyes and learn to speak up because nature won’t forgive us for the criminal negligence.
      May God give us wisdom and strength to fight against not only the covid19 but also the injustice that is spreading faster than Corona.
      Stay blessed and safe πŸ’–

      1. Yes indeed Saba, we definitely need to fight both and the world needs to stop turning their heads away from the injustice.
        You stay safe as well Saba, God bless!πŸ™‚πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜»

  5. Ameen! Subhanallah. beautiful expressions! Alhamdulillah, your writing skill is praiseworthy. may Allah reward you for all you do. Ameen!
    indeed, there is no refuge except Allah and there is no quwat (might or power) greater than Allah. Allahu Akbar!

    1. Jazakallah! Mustafa
      HE is the Greatest and The Most Powerful.
      Only his mercy upon us is the cure for our sufferings.
      May Allah forgive us and remove this curse from us,Ameen

    1. Allah has shown the glimpse of his justice to this deaf and dumb world..
      I am surprised to watch day to day news, how these so called super powers have become helpless..
      May Allah forgive us, Ameen

      1. When human try to show that they are worthy ones by playing around the earth, Allah makes them worthless. And who stand worthless before Allah, Allah makes him worthy…..
