Prisoner of war


Trapped – Alone, with nothing but four walls


The mind wanders to cherished memories and beyond


Time continues to go by but life stalls


I’m losing my strength to hold on.


Imprisoned for believing, for hearing and obeying


Punished for testifying and affirming the Truth


Prisoner of War of conflicting ideologies


Flawed system which detains indiscriminately


No evidence, no proof – a threat to national security.


Counting each day, each month, each year behind these metal bars


Stripped of my honour, my dignity, and free speech


Humiliated by the media, every trial, court hearing,


Wild accusations, slander and lies


As they try to vilify


My character, the core of my being,


I silently scream to be free.


I long to feel the cool morning breeze


And hear the fajr birds sing


To see Autumn leaves fall from the trees


And the magical moments that freedom can bring.


A flame of hope continues to burn bright


By the letters I receive, which my brothers write


My heart delights as I read each word again and again


Golden words of comfort, calling me to patience


Provide solace to the soul and a shred of humanity


In this cell my home, devoid of any luxuries


Helping me to retain my sanity.


I preoccupy myself with remembrance of Allaah


Console myself with the stories of the Prophets of the past


I’m not the first to be illegally detained


Sadly, I doubt I’ll be the last.

Hadeeth Newsflash

Reported by K`ab bin Malik (RA): Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, "Two hungry wolves sent in the midst of a flock of sheep are no more destructive to them than a man's greed for wealth and fame is to his Deen.'' [At-Tirmidhi]
