And when they call on me to describe my home 


Facing a direction my heart longs for 

Do I place a cloth approximately 2by4 


Never have I sought guidance 

And found it superior elsewhere 

Than when my feet stood firm 


Nor have I felt more gratification

Than when my back bent straight 


And when my shoulders buckle from the world 

And my heart overflows with longing 

And my soul yearns to escape 


I am yet to find solace more satisfying 

Than when I bury my face in the ground 


Therein lies my home 


In Allah I find a Guardian

In Sujuud I find serenity. 

In Islam I find mercy
