A Time For Peace


Little Poets

A Time for Peace

Ramadan, the month of fasting
The arrival of glad tidings

Purify the wealth, thus acquired, by remitting
A share to the needy, as God is oft-forgiving

Fasting is like a shield
Abstains from sin and quarreling

Cheerfulness this month yields
Enables a peaceful life in every being

Makes a person hospitable
By taking away the quality of greed

In Lailathul Qadr, the Night of Power
Sent Qur’an, the glorious, as guide to mankind

Can attain self-control and intellectual power
By knowing the existence of one kind

Let us unite in group
To share the pleasure of fasting

With utmost dignity and hope
To complete peacefully the fasting
