Human being

Post by UMMAR JAMAL on Tuesday, January 17, 2023

First slide

A mortal being whose existence is perishable

He to many and many things are to him unintelligible

Forwhom the death is inexorable, yet doesn’t knows when he is going to die

When he is going to bid to everything last and final goodbye

He amasses wealth and does his utmost for name and fame

Commits hundreds of sins in a day, yet no shame

Hewho spends hours together to prettify his complexation

But does not have even a moment for self-reflection

But he is one who religions scriptures call “noblest creature”

Provided that he is a true and staunch believer

Unlike other creature, whom Allah has bestowed with free will

Who has carte blanche to choose between good and evil?

Good if he chooses, he will elevate his status above angles

Evil if he chooses, he is no less than a beast of a jungle
