He is Greater

Woke up before dawn
Cold water and sleepy eyes
Ignored Shaitan’s lies

Left my class early
Warmer weather, it’s noon now
Study room, I bow

Finally back home
Have homework but it can wait
Face He who creates

Dinner, we sit down
Finish eating, make wudu
Feet close by like glue

Day is almost done
And the moon shines with the stars
Allahu Akbar

Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) has said in the Qur’an: “I have not created the jinn and humankind for any other purpose except that they should worship me.”

Salah is an important part of a Muslim’s daily life. It is the second pillar of Islam, the first thing we will be asked about on the Day of Judgement, and the sole reason for which we have been created.


  1. SubhanAllah, after I read the description at the end about the Salah, I went through the Haiku again and then it hit me that each stanza was basically representing one of the Fard Salawat. That was pretty powerful Masha’Allah :)

  2. Loved it masha’allah! You should do more haikus-you’re good at it =)
