Poem | A Night’s Prayer | Ammar AlShukry

“Do you belittle du‘ā’ and discount it

While not knowing what the prayer accomplishes

The arrows of the night do not miss their target

But they have a span, and the span then finishes.”

  4. Thank you brother Ammar. That was beautiful ma-sha-Allah. I really love the way you worked the Quranic verses and dua’s into the poem, and the English captions that were added helped tremendously as well.

    I hear the passion for the people, and the pure reliance on Allah.

  8. This was awesome, thank you MM!

    At the risk of seeming uncultured and lacking in creativity, I have to ask: what is the analogy between arrows and du`a? What is the connection between the arrows having a “span” and our du`a? Someone enlighten me por favor.
