By Khadija Andleeb
Casting down your glances,
Not aware of surroundings.
Acting upon God’s word
Believing in it as firm as true,
O! my chaste maidens Gardens of Heaven are for you.
This world of myth and illusion,
Where Angels laugh in derision.
Devils are those who mock and tease,
Dope makes you ill at ease
Just leave him alone to boil and stew,
O! my radical ladies Gardens of Heaven are for you.
Craving for jewels, silk and diamonds,
No longer increase our despondence.
Hand in hand with poor and wretched
Soothing their ignition to covet
This lesson, Hijab teaches of Equality,
Voluptuous desires are sheer frivolity
Saluting, audacious efforts made by you,
O! my modest sisters Gardens of Heaven are for you.
Inside so humble and meek,
Skills and intellect at their peek.
May God bless you all
Showering girt to shame cruel
Holding to it as stick as glue,
O! my valiant females Gardens of Heaven are for you.
