Crippled Muslim Men

Asalamu Alaykom,

Crippled Muslim Men

The man with the slow and unsteady gait
hurries on his way through streets
knowing the azan is coming.

Each shuffle with his half-limp body
moves him closer to the prayer hall,
believing it is his obligation to Allah.

I watch him from my window sill,
watch how he cannot keep a straight line,
yet he is following The Best Path.

Many a "Muslim" man stays at home,
rests his body all through Jummah
never admitting he's losing his stride.
