A .... M

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 "Al-Hamdulillah.

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.
