In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


Coffee

An urge to return is simmering, deep within the soul
A restlessness - a yearning, calling towards the Goal

So the seeker sows a seed, hoping to harvest a crop
It's knowledge he seeks and he will succeed, if he even receives a drop

From an ancient drink whose very aroma awakens aspiration
Setting the mood for enlightenment; reflection and contemplation

When ready it's carefully poured into, the cup of good behaviour
The cream of Zikrullah is added to enrich the texture and flavour

Sweetened with Salawat on the one in whom virtue was perfected
It stirs us to the Sunnah, of the one whom God selected

Gently cooled by the fanning wings, of Angels made from light
That cover the seeker of sacred knowledge, as he learns to his heart's delight

Wisely take your time, ensuring every sip is savoured
With every sip you thank Allah, feeling immensely favoured

O with what other drink can the cup of knowledge be compared,
So generously host and serve your guests, for knowledge tastes best when shared!
