All That is on Earth will Perish

“All that is on earth will perish; But will abide (forever) the Face of thy Lord full of Majesty Bounty and Honor.” (Quran, 55:26-27)

In the hour of death, after this life’s whim

When the heart beats low, and the eyes grow dim,

And pain has exhausted every limb-

The lover of the Lord shall trust in Him.

When the will has forgotten the lifelong aim,

When the mind can only disgrace its fame,

And a man is uncertain of his own name-

The Power of the Lord shall fill this frame.

When the last sigh is heaved, and the last tear shed,

And the coffin is lying beside the bed,

And the widow and child forsake the dead-

The angel of the Lord shall lift this head.

For even the purest delight may pall,

And power must fail, and the pride must fall,

And the love of dearest friends grow small-

But the Glory of the Lord is all in all.

So great was the Prophet Muhammad’s, Allah bless him and give him peace, regard for its contents that he considered it the major miracle that God worked through him. He himself, unschooled to the extent that he was unlettered, could not have produced a book that provides a ground plan of all knowledge and at the same time is without poetic peer.
