Tara' wee & Qiya'am

Shoulder to shoulder clad in black
Standing in a pious symmetrical solidarity

Bending together in prostrations apt
Sighing in chorus, heads all bent in humility

Ensemble of souls, regardless of colour or caste
Praying insync for their eternal prosperity

Leading men and women the Qari up front, and I'm
Listening to a recitation intensely full of beauty

Tears trickle down the cheeks of many
All assembled -at least in that moment- in a peaceful harmony.
