Today we will be hearing from 9-year-old Hana Hubert from Delaware, USA. In her poem “Beauty of the Heavens and the Earth,” she describes the blessings Allāh gives us and how we should thank Him for what he has given us.
Beauty of the Heavens and the Earth
by Hana Hubert
The beauty of the heavens and the earth,
the magnificence of a child's birth.
They are all Allāh's creations,
no matter where they are, all of their stations.
Allāh gave them to us because He is Rahman,
We must be thankful and keep our īmān.
He influences our lives, in every way,
in the night, while we sleep, in every part of our day.
He gave us our hands, our feet, and our eyes,
He gave parents and children and each new surprise.
So show him what you've got, remember to pray,
make du'as, don't lie, and speak the right thing to say.
So please do try to live your life by the Qur'an,
Stay in touch with Allāh, and keep hold on your īmān.
And if you live your life, following this way,
You'll be guided by Allāh, in the night and the day.
