Midnight is the time of my rumbling tummy,
I long for the food bumbling yummy!
Since the irony is – nothing in the refrigerator or in the kitchen cabinet
The dining table is clear and the vessels are washed
Drinking the water to make my stomach laminate
When the food is kept waiting for me in dining but my laxity is what it caused.
Woke up in the morning my mother’s savouries filled the home
Now my stomach betrayed me with lack of appetite syndrome
How ungrateful of a human body to not be satisfied
Tho, the soul knows what the almighty tells; classified
“O mankind! Eat of that which is lawful
And good on the earth.” (Qur’an-2:168)
Prompt yourself for the real world by his verdict:
“And We produce gardens of grapevines and
olives and pomegranates, similar yet varied.
Look at Leach of its fruit when it yields
and [at] its ripening.”(Qur’an-6:99)
Solace indeed he word it:
“O believers! Eat of those pure and clean
things which We have provided for you,
and give thanks to Allah if He is the One
Whom you worship (and obey).”(Qur’an 2:172)
