Poems for Children
by Khadeijah Stephens

Thank You Allah

Thank You Allah for all that you give.
I know sometimes I'm naughty so please forgive.
Please teach me to be good every day,
and let my heart be ready and willing to pray.
Thank You Allah for Your Prophet whom I love,
please raise him in rank in Paradise above.

Two Little Girls

Two little girls playing in the sun
one wore a scarf, the other wore none.
"Why do you wear a scarf?"
asked the one without,
the other little girl said without a doubt,
"Allah loves me to cover my hair
so that little boys won't stand and stare,
when I grow up what I really want to be
is a well dressed Muslim lady like my pretty Mommy."


Remember...To say Bismallah before you eat.
