Qur'An - Poem by nadia abduljabbar

Qur’an is the holy book
Of Muslims and for Humanity,
It sands in a middle position between
The Old Testaments and The Bible;
Muslims have the right to ask
The Court to punish those who
Hurt, annoy them or kill
Their relatives. Unlike any Christian,
A Muslim man or woman is never
Asked to turn their other cheek
For their enemy to slap.
Like Jews, Muslims have the right
For eye to eye punishment,
Yet they are encouraged
To forgive, but are not forced
To forget.

A Muslim cannot insult
Any messenger or prophet,
Because all of them are sent
By God, or Allah,
All of them met Gabriel;
The Angel messenger
For every human Messenger.

All prophets have one main
Massage for their people:
To worship The Creator of Man
And the World alone who
Has no partner; He is unique;
“ He has begotten no one,
And is begotten of none.
There is no one comparable to Him.”

This is the pure faith of Qur’an,
That prevent us from
Becoming toys in Satin’s lap,
Qur’an true meaning can
Be translated not its literal text,
Because of its deep eloquence.
The Austrian Asadaullah and
The Pakistani Ahmad Ali
Not an Arab writer might
Have written the best
Translations in the last century.
