Babar Ahmad: You

15 Oct

You are the tides that propel every lost vessel,
You are the shining stars that enlighten the path of every wayfarer,
You are the springs that irrigate every barren land,
You are the pillars that strengthen every crumbling edifice,
You are the flags that signal every impeding victory,
You are the rays of sunlight that shatter every dark night,
You are the helping hands that aid every drowning soul,
You are the gusts that oxygenate every suffocation,
You in your orange jumpsuits are the signposts upon the road to salvation,
You are the proof that faith can overcome mountains,
You are the proof that Allah is still worshipped in
the world today.


– Babar Ahmad, HMP Woodhill
