side by side..-_-

SIDE BY SIDE…

They lie on the table side by side
The Holy Quran and the T.V. Guide.

One is well worn and cherished with pride.
Not the Quran, but the T.V. Guide.

One is used daily to help folks decide.
Not the Quran, but the T.V. Guide.

As the pages are turned, what shall they see?
Oh, what does it matter, turn on the T.V.

So they open the book in which they confide.
No, not the Quran, but the T.V. Guide.

The Word of Allah is seldom read,
Maybe a verse before they fall into bed.

Exhausted and sleepy and tired as can be,
Not from reading the Quran, from watching T.V.

So then back to the table side by side,
Lie the Holy Quran and the T.V. Guide.

No time for prayer, no time for the Word,
The plan of Istiqama is seldom heard.

But forgiveness of sin, so full and free,
Is found in the Quran, not on T.V
