1. It was early in the morning at four, When death knocked upon a bedroom door, Who is there?

The sleeping one cried. I'm Malkul Mawt, let me inside. At once, the man began to shiver, As one sweating in deadly fever, He shouted to his sleeping wife, Don't let him take away my life. Please go away, O Angel of Death! Leave me alone; I'm not ready yet. My family on me depends; Give me chances, O please prepense! The angel knocked again and again, Friend! I'll take your life without a pain,

this your soul Allah requires, I come not with my own desire. Bewildered, the man began to cry, O Angel I'm so afraid to die, I'll give you gold and be your slave, don't send me to the unlit grave. Let me in, O Friend! The Angel said, open the door; get up from your bed, If you do not allow me in, I will walk through it, like a Jinn. The man held a gun in his right hand, Ready to defy the Angel's stand. I'll point my gun, towards your head, You dare come in; I'll shoot you dead. By now the Angel was in the room, Saying, O Friend! Pre pare for you doom. Foolish man, Angels never die, Put down your gun and do not sigh. Why are you afraid! Tell me O man, To die according to Allah's plan? Come smile at me, do not be grim, Be Happy to return to Him.

With flirting women I sat to dine. And give all my wealth to charity. daughter or son. of your past. Your two ill-gotten. Sometimes I sipped my favorite wine. You lived in this world. Hungry beggars. But I would not part with my money. Taking usury more and more. In nightclubs. . female offspring. you turned away. From morning till dusk. I will refrain from usury. But no time had I to repent. A Ramadan came and a Ramadan went. Not even caring for my health. I will complete. for livelihood they sing. Death is ordained for everyone. I'm afraid this moment is your last. The Laws of Quran I will obey. mother. O Angel! I appeal to you. Father. I do understand your fears. Spare my life for a year or two. We cannot go against His commands. I made my wealth.

I'll begin SALAT this very day. Now be reminded. Win e and wenches I will detest. Nor five times a day I ever prayed. We Angels do what Allah demands. Allah's command I never obeyed. Your parents.O Angel! I bow my head in shame. Allah's oneness I will attest. And keep away from self-conceit. you did not obey. All charities I did ignore.

he fell down dead. There is no time for you to repent. With the very sick. And your poor workers. your end may be near Change your living and make amends For heaven. The ending however. You bought good properties for a song. It can help someone too . You ignored the Mua'dhin Adhaan. When the farmers appealed to you. You ate vitamins and grew more fat. O Reader!

From hoarded goods. this true. I'll take your soul for which I am sent. is very sad. you never sat. Which could a little baby save? O Human.

Nor did you read the Holy Quran. undoubtedly you will dwell in hell. Horses and cards were your leisure. Paradise for you? I cannot tell. A pint of blood you never gave. he jumped out of bed. Moneymaking was your pleasure. you underpaid. great profits you made.
