Wudu

Ordered by the Creator,
Wudu to clean and protect.
Ablution of the body and soul
to condition and correct.

Hands are washed 5 times a day
along with arms and face and head
ears and feet are also cleaned
to allow our sins be shed.

And when we've wiped our unhappiness clear,
we feel the mercy of Gods way.
And know that we are only helping ourselves,
when we bow our heads to pray.

This action of sheer glory,
this routine of pure delight.
Allows the soul to rest in ease
as it sleeps throughout the night.

And when the ignorant insult their own
knowledge when the call us filth and dirt,
It really doesn't matter what they think,
so long no one else gets hurt.

And when we stand as equals,
rows of prayers known as Salah,
Wudu, it keeps us presentable
during our meeting with Allah.
