early morning

Marvelling at early morning sky
The velvety clouds,
streaked with gold,
painted so flawlessly
by the Best Painter, Al-Musawwar,
hang majestically in the sky.
A bird
soaring delightfully,
light and free
from any worldly baggage,
holds my attention.

The One, who holds it during its flight,
and does not let it fall or waver-
even in the worst of storms.
Why would He let me fall or forsake me
when He, Ar-Rahman, doesn’t neglect a tiny bird?

He, who brings a bright new day
from the cradle of night.
He, who is Al-Wakeel,
He will surely suffice me.
The Giver of life-
The All-Seeing.

(Inspired from the majestic early morning sky and Surah Mulk, verse 19)
