AAAAA.How the gambling haram harms


Our religion forbids all games of chance guys
We ain't allowed to indulge in that harmful enterprise
But no one can claim that gambling is at all wise

To more has gambling brought much misery and misfortune
Trying your luck that way brings bad luck to this money goon!

So goes without saying, no need of elaborating
that harmful and addictive are casinos and gambling

Quick money is the lure
but gambling is such an addictive trap
Indeed a vicious circle it is for sure
and you can 'bet' my warnings ain't crap!

The casino wheel doesn't always tip the scales in your favour many times
bringing down people from heights of immense affluence
to the abyss of poverty and monetary crimes
as gamblers act as if 'under the influence'

God only wished us to not be thus corrupt
for He foresaw most gamblers going bankrupt

To gamble is sin
and you don't always win

You might end up losing even the little you had
from bad to worse, tycoon hero to zero, alas too sad

I amn't uselessly rambling
Better stay away from gambling

A compulsive gambler frequenting the casino
might forever court ill-luck you know
from slot machine back to home, to and fro!
As to others his bucks shall go.

    Well said. Having lost a months wages on the turn of a card I couldn't agree more. Gambling is addictive and ultimately leads to loss for the gambler. (Report) Reply
