A to Z

A is for Allah

Lord of the Universe, who is One
He made the earth, stars, and sun
He made angels to worship and pray
He made man from a dab of clay

B is for Bilal

Bilal is that tall, brave African man
Islam freed him and gave him iman
Calling the Muslims to come and pray
Was his duty each night and day

C is for Children

Black, white, red, yellow, and brown
Better than the jewels in a crown
Laughing or crying, short or tall
Allah loves children, one and all

D is for Du'a

Remembering Allah all nights and days
By giving Him our thanks and praise
Thank Allah with "Al Hamdulillah"
And praise Him with "Subhanallah"

E is for Earth

With its mountains, rivers, and seas
Animals, birds, fruits, and trees
They all declare Allah's Might
Following His laws, wills, and light

F is for Faith

That which the Muslims call Iman
Is in the heart of the believing man
Will come from his lip and hand
Love for Allah pouring out like sand

G is for Gabriel

An angel (called Jibraeel in Islam) created by Allah from light
His duty is to serve Allah all day and night
To Prophet Muhammad (S) he did appear
To bring mankind the Holy Qur'an so dear

H is for Heaven

God's garden of joy, peace, and love
The home for Muslim's souls above
The path to this heavenly place
Is faith in Allah's guidance and grace

I is for Islam

A way of life for all of who
Give to Allah the praise that is due
We worship and pray five times a day
Because we know it is the best way

J is for Jesus

Peace be upon him, 'Isa, the son of Maryam
To his people Allah's word did he carry
By Allah's help, he made the sick well
So people would believe what he had to tell

K is for Ka'bah

First house of Allah in Makkah was made
By Ibrahim and Isma'il the stones were laid
Millions of believers from every race
Come for Hajj tot his extra special place

L is for Life

A precious gift from Allah to you
Don't waste it, he knows what you do
Don't chase pleasure or forget Allah
No matter how little, say "Alhamdulillah"

M is for Muhammad

Peace be upon him, Abdullah's son
From Allah's enemies he did not run
Of all the Prophets, he was the last
Islam his message which we hold fast

N is for Nuh

Peace be upon him, a Prophet who was very good
Allah told him to build an ark, fast as he could
Take pairs of animals and the believers-all
The flood was coming and the waves would be tall!

O is for Obedience

It is the duty of each Muslim to obey
The Qur'an and the Sunnah all the way
Go for Hajj, give Zakah, fast, and pray
And to your parents do not say, "Nay!"

P is for Prayer

It is the cornerstone of Muslim life
And the devil it cuts like a knife
Prayer five times a day is a must
In Allah, you should put your trust

Q is for Qur'an

A blessing and guide for all of mankind
In it Allah's message you will find
Of all His messages, it is the last
Perfect for present, future, and past

R is for Ramadan

For Muslims this blessed month of fasting
Is to celebrate Allah's love everlasting
All day, no food, nor drink, nor evil deeds
Pray and read Qur'an, to heaven this leads

S is for Surah

One hundred and fourteen in the Qur'an
Read them and trust in Al-Rahman
Do you know ten of them that you can say?
Knowing them will help you pray

T is for Tawheed

La ilaaha illallah, Allah is the only one
There is no partner with Him, nor son
Allah is the answer to all that we need
Watch your heart and tongue, He knows every deed

U is for Ummah

The Muslim community, which Muhammad (S) found
The brotherhood of Islam made it sound
Allah's laws in the Qur'an and Sunnah
Are to help everyone in the Ummah

V is for Victory

It is the help from Allah to you
His guidance in everything you do
Work and prayer a Muslim does need
To celebrate Allah's victory, indeed!

W is for Wudu'

We must keep our minds and bodies clean
Because by Allah we are always seen
Whenever you hear the call of athan
Prepare and come pray as soon as you can

X is for ......

X is not easy for us to rhyme
So, we'll not waste much of your time
In higher math, X is hard to find
But Allah's path is clear even to the blind

Y is for Yunus

Peace be upon him, a good man in a wicked town
He ran to the sea and a whale gobbled him down
By the mercy of Allah, he was saved to tell
His people to become good and obey Allah well

Z is for Zero-sin

It is the way we each begin
Free from worldly sin
So, don't let yourself forget
Keep out of the devil's threat!
