White Lie


White Lie

“Does a Muslim
Lie”, so was asked
Prophet Mohammad,
Peace be upon him, Jesus,
Moses and all the other
Prophets, he was so
Affirmative in his reply,
Saying no a Muslim does not,
Before that he was asked
About other major sins
Such as adultery and theft.

He replied that a Muslim
Might commit such sins,
And if he repents, he might
Be accepted according how
Honestly he regrets.
.
If Muslims meditate enough
To understand the depth
Of such a profound saying
They would have never let
Lying prevail in society;
There is nothing such as
White, red or black lie,
There is nothing as it
Was just a compliment,
Even compliments should
Be from the heart.

The prophet’s tongue
And heart are lighted
By his pure created nature
And by the light of God,
He does not throw
Meaningless words
Without real knowing
Their depth or effect;
Lies make people doubt
Each other and the result
Is an insecure sick society.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
