A Poem For A Kingdom

By Basco (American fiance of a Saudi)

ASSALAM ALAYKUM TO ALL THOSE HERE
MAY ALLAH GUIDE OUR LIVES EVERY DAY
ALLAH, PLEASE USE THE GOODNESS OF THIS BRAVE LAND
TO CAUSE THE SPREAD OF ISLAM IN A VERY NOBLE WAY
ALLAH YOU HAVE BLESSED THIS GREAT COUNTRY
WITH KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM AND WEALTH
ALLAH, PLEASE BLESS THE LEADERS OF THIS STRONG COUNTRY
WITH COMPASSION, COURAGE AND HEALTH
THE WORLD TODAY LOOKS TO THIS LAND
TO USE IT’S RESOURCES WELL
AND ONLY IN THE YEARS TO COME
WILL THAT USE BE CLEAR TO TELL
WITH THE WORDS OF ALLAH’S PROPHET
AND WITH THE LESSONS THAT HE HAS TAUGHT
THIS LAND WILL STAND AND ENDURE
WHILE OTHER LANDS MAY NOT
POWER AND HUMILITY
ARE OFTEN DIFFICULT QUALITIES TO BLEND
BUT THIS IS HOW THE FATHER TEACHES
WITH A FIRM BUT GENTLE HAND
THE HISTORY OF THIS MIGHTY DESERT NATION
IS FILLED WITH LEGEND AND FILLED WITH LORE
AND WHAT STORIES THE FUTURE WILL HEAR
THE MEN GATHERED HERE MUST NOT IGNORE
THERE IS TURMOIL AND THERE IS TROUBLE
LURKING IN THE DARKNESS OF THE NIGHT
GUIDE THIS MIGHTY KINGDOM – ALLAH
TO WALK IN SAFETY IN THE LIGHT
THIS COUNTRY IS A BEACON IN THE DARK
SHOWING TO ALL THOSE WHO ARE IN NEED
THAT ISLAM IS THE ONLY STRAIGHT ROAD
TO ALLAH AND TO SUCCEED
TAAL OMERAK BELOVED KING ABDULLAH
AND TO YOUR FAMILY, COUNTRYMEN AND KIN
WALK STAIGHT IN ALLAH’S GUIDANCE
FOR PARADISE IS A WORTHY PRIZE TO WIN
