The Arafat Day

By Mr. Ali Shareef H.Filigasdhoshuge Male Maldives.

Before us, most awesome sight,
When men in seamless clothes, white,
Women their heads covered,
Regarding life and new light.
At the climax of the pilgrimage,
On the day of Arafat,
The biggest event of get-together on earth.
Chanting the final sermon of the day,
With their hands raised towards the sky,
"Here I am Oh God! Here I am,
Associate no one with thee".
Moved by spiritual experience,
Everyone in deep conscience,
In the hot sun under umbrellas,
In tears, they are praying for mercy,
Some are on the rocky hill of mercy.
Loudly praying for clemency,
People from all over the world,
Stood shoulder to shoulder,
No difference between classes and gender,
Representing every nationality,
Showing obedience and equality,
Physical and mental purity.
