The Poem of 17

Recommended Posts

سبحان الله

Salam Alaikum, oh brothers and sisters around the globe!

Jazak Allah Khair.



Allah created brothers for the Stars,

A (1) Circle of Splendor,

Among them was a planet full of water,

A (2) Gift to the Thirsty,

So Allah created a brother for that too,

A (3) White Flock,

Oh People! A (4) Charming Gesture!


A (5) Faithful Shine it was,

(6) Guard of the Earth it was,

(7) Shine for the Believers it was,

(8) Felicity from the Lord it was,

A (9) Creation of Hope it was.

Oh People! A (10) Protector of Calamities!


Allah told the (11) Shining Companion,

"Obey me! I created you from fallen rocks!"

The (12) Companion of the Stars responded,

"We belong to You, Oh Forgiver of Sins!"

Oh People! A (13) Loyal to the Lord!


When the people of it's brother came,

To visit the (14) One who was never Lame,

(15) The Helping Hand told them: "Welcome! I am a (16) Token of the Lord. Proceed your visit!".

Oh People! A (17) Friend of Home!


I am talking about,

The Magnificent Moon,

Oh Lord, strengthen me in prayers!


For I see Your creations as indeed Your creations,

For I see Your properties as indeed Your properties,


Knowledge is only from Him!

    • Salam. If the person lives in another country and has the wish to be buried in Iraq, there are governmental regulations about shipping a person's remains. The country where that person lives has laws that need to be followed. For example, the person who died would need a medical statement that the body is not contagious. The casket would need to be inside a lead box that would not leak, then placed inside a wooden crate which is nailed shut and has special seals that show if there was tampering or opening. The funeral home would need government permission to transport the body by airline and not all airlines provide that service. The licensed funeral home worker would need to drive the prepared package with the person's remains to the licensed airline and make sure that the remains were placed on the airplane. At the arrival in the airport in Iraq, the person's remains would be in the customs area and the customs workers would wait for the person who would need to personally claim the body and sign documents that the body was picked up. Because the whole thing is very heavy and would not fit inside an ambulance or hearse, the wooden crate would need to be opened which means workers or relatives of the deceased would need to use crowbars to remove it. After lifting the lead box into the vehicle, the deceased would need to be transported to the cemetery location where the bodies are washed. The cemetery would take care of everything but of course the price will depend on the location of the cemetery. The most expensive part of the international burial is the western country (funeral home, trip to airport, airline shipping) and could reach $15,000. The price of the cemetery plot, washing the body, wrapping the body in kaffan, is a separate price. The temporary grave marker with the name written in chalk on it is probably free, but the grave stone with the name carved on it would be a separate price. This does not answer your question of whether someone can be buried in Iraq, but I just want you to know that the person needs to save his money if he has such a wish. May Allah SWT grant all halal wishes.  
    • That is the crux of the issue here brother. I am trying to understand what/who determines which parts to accept and which parts to reject.
    • Or this question: Can I use body wash to wash my hair?  
    • There isn't even unity among shias. You call non-twelver Shias heretics. Do you think you are ready to unity with Sunnis?
    • I suppose it all depends on the person. But yes, if someone took a literalist approach and did believe that the many strories of scripture were all true in a black and white way, and they simultaneously were consistent in believing all things they viewed as miracles, then yes they would believe both in the literal story of Adam and Eve, and the literal story of the virgin birth.
