The Test

Life is a test

So we must try our best

To please our Lord

And show Him we are worthy of his reward

Make testification and offer Salah five times a day

For surely this will keep shaytaan at bay

Be generous and give charity

And try achieve some parity

Fast during the Holy month of Ramadhan

And no excuses we are free of shaytaan

Perform Hajj and purify your heart

Surely this will help you make a new start

Follow this recipe and you may pass the test

But only Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala knows best.
