Maghrib on the Beach

Author unknown

Sunset at the beach, the time for Maghrib prayer had arrived
Preparing to worship the one from Whom his sustenance was derived

Standing firmly in front of Almighty Allah
Humbly hoping to gain a place in Jannah

Eyes closed, yet filled with visions of beauty
So serene as he fulfilled his religious duty

The sky painted in orange and pink as the sun slowly set
What a beautiful, warm day, and it wasn’t over yet

A gentle breeze blew as he bowed his head on the ground
His fear and love of the Creator was enough to make his heart pound

The soothing spray of the ocean refreshed his body and soul
After completing his salat, he once again felt he was whole
