    I didnt mean bowing down to prostrate, i meant going down to his feet, to touch them, kiss them etc..

    not too sure about this couplet. prostration of respect is Haram but i'm not sure if that's what is meant here. it could just mean kissing aaqa 'alaihi's salam's feet.

    secondly, i remember our learned brother saying that these type of verses should not be read by/for the ignorant. a scholar reciting certain poetry is different to a layman reciting the same. and the audience must be kept in mind too.

    can anyone clarify?

    also, should it be lose or loose?

    My First Poem dedicated to the Prophet [Peace be upon him]

    I won't loose hope O Beloved!

    Laying in the valley as I cry myself to sleep,
    Missing you O Beloved with every heart beat.

    Time seems to have stopped
    Due to my yearning for us to meet,

    I wish I could be in your presence,
    Bowing down to your feet.

    O Master! please help me fulfill my need,
    On that day when I will come to you with my plead.

    That day when all others shall reject me,
    I will have no where to go so I will search for you.

    Alas I will be with the Exalted one,
    The one I would give my life to see.

    There will be one floating Boat,
    On board will be those who you choose.

    I am one who is drowned in sins.
    Please don't let me be among those who you refuse.

    O Leader! Take me on board too,
    Make my only dream come true.

    If you let go of me I will fall,
    The Fire would be my abode.

    Lost, Alone and separated from the one I love most out of all,
    Struggling to carry the load.

    Yet I shall have hope in you as you will stand up tall.
    I will hopingly wait for your intercession followed by the call.

    Back and forward you shall go,
    Pleading to your Lord whilst your tears flow.

    Until all the believers are free,

    Which might happen to include me.
