Written by Hassan. A narration by Nesrin.


Dear Allah,

I hope you get this letter, as I’m in a great deal of doubt.

I don’t get your Divine Plan, what’s it all about?


There you are, before a creation to fill

Nothing but Allah, he, himself and his will,


Perhaps you were lonely, though even then you knew.

You’d create angels, to obey and worship you.


Maybe this wasn’t enough, you were not amused,

But why you created Satan, just leaves me bemused


You gave man a mind and a freewill to choose

Then demanded he believe in irrational, contradictory clues


While keeping yourself hidden from all verification

Threatening torture if we don’t prostrate in supplication


You sent prophets and books to a patch of land

And miracles galore to that sacred area of sand


But before man can scientifically record and corroborate

You decide communications must now mysteriously terminate


You say you are testing mankind — to see who is true

Though saint and sinner, you already knew


But worse than this is the consequence of this test

It’s results are iniquitous — perverse at best


Those, who accept on faith, myths handed down

Will enjoy eternal bliss and never have to frown


While those who insist on reasoning with their brain

Will be sent to the fire of Hell to suffer eternal pain


Dear Allah none of this makes sense to me

Please tell me if there is something I’ve failed to see


And I don’t understand when so many suffer and die

What is the reason — I cannot see why?


Was it a test for the baby, her father or mother

Or was she sacrificed to test someone other?


When you planned all this did you count every tear

Was your ultimate purpose that we tremble in fear


And when all are in Heaven or Hell — as dictated by fate

Will you sit back on your throne to shouts of “Allah is Great”?
