PEARLS OF THE FAITH: 30. AL-HADIL, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: God will roll up, when this world's end approacheth
Last Line: Among the number of thine own!
Subject(s): God; Islam


Al-Hâdil! Oh, "Just Lord!" we magnify
Thy righteous Law which shall the whole world try..

God will roll up, when this world's end approacheth,
The broad blue spangled hangings of the sky,
Even as As-Sigill rolleth up his record,
And seals and binds it when a man doth die.

Then the false worshipers, and what they follow,
Will to the pit, like "stones of hell," descend,
But true believers shall hear Angels saying,
"This is your day; be joyous without end."

In that hour dust shall lie on many faces,
And many faces shall be glad and bright;
Ye who believe, trust and be patient always,
Until God judges, for He judges right.

Give us to pass before Thy throne
Among the number of Thine own!
