My happiness knew no bounds!
My heart wouldn’t stop to pound!

I caught this lady and said, “I was in!”
My tears couldn’t be controlled within!

It was an unbelievable achievement!
It left me shaking in bewilderment!

My sins started to occur in my mind!
My thoughts were set to ‘rewind’!

I held that lady and told her that I was selected!
How else could I thank Allah (swt), for my sinful soul He hadn’t rejected!

While in Rukoo, I burst into tears again,
When came Sajood, my consciousness I couldn’t regain!

I thanked Him, I laughed, I smiled,
Like a little baby, that day I cried,

I couldn’t believe my fate,
I had been chosen – so what if late?

Such is the mercy of Allah (swt) beyond comprehension!
Human errs and errs again, yet He gives you attention!

It only takes sincere intention and heartfelt Du’a,
He runs towards you, when you walk towards Allah (swt)!

Oh, Allah (swt), please make this journey easy for me,
May I benefit from it and spread the message of Thee,

Ya Rabb, please forgive me and cleanse me of my sins!
I want to start afresh, as my journey towards Quran begins!
