Musfiq us shaleheen

(31st, December,1970 / Khulna, Bangladesh)

Prophecy


Their skins will bear,
witness against them as to
what they have been doing
Corruption has spread on land
and sea because of
what men hands have wrought

And after HIM WE said
to the Children of Israel,
Dwell Ye in the promised land; and
when the time of the promise
of the Latter Days come,
WE shall bring you together
out of various people

They will alter Allah's creation
And when the mountains are made to move

And when the she-camels,
Ten months pregnant are abandoned
And HE has created horses
and mules and asses
that you may ride them,
and as a source of beauty
And HE will create
what you do not yet know

And when the wild beasts
are gathered together
And when the rivers are made,
to flow into each other

HE has made the two,
bodies of water flow
they will one day meet between,
them there is a barrier;
they cannot encroach one upon the other
And HE it is who shall merge,
the two seas together

This palatable and sweet,
that saltiest and bitter
And between them He has presently placed
a barrier and a massive partition

And when various people are brought together
And when the female-infant,
buried alive is questioned about
for what crime was she killed
And when books are spread abroad-

And among HIS signs is the creation of
the heavens and the earth,
and of whatever living creatures
HE has spread forth in both
And HE has the power to gather them
together whenever he pleases
And by the heaven full of tracks

It never happens that,
permissiveness overwhelms
A people to the extent that
they display their acts
of sex shamelessly
and they are not uniquely,
punished by God
Among them, invariably,
pestilence is made to spread
and such other diseases,
HE Like of which have never been
witnessed by their forefathers

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know

of the slow autumn at my window,
