Waiting for the call

Miles away, oceans apart
Never in my sight, but always in my heart
The love is always there, it will never die
Only growing stronger, a tear rolls down my eye

I’m thinking of the time
When the day will come
Standing there before You
Accept this Hajj of mine
Standing in Ihram
Making my Tawaf
Drinking blessings from Your well
The challenge of Safa and Marwa rekindles my Iman

O Allah
 I am waiting for the call
I’m praying for the day when I can be near the Ka’ba walls
I feel alive and I feel strong
I can feel Islam running through my veins
To see my Muslim brothers their purpose all the same
Greeting one another,
exalting one true name,
I truly hope one day,
everyone will get the chance
To be blessed with the greatest honour
Of being called to Your Noble House

Labbayka Allahumma labbayk
Labbayka la sharika laka labbayk
Innal hamda wanni’mata laka wal mulk
La sharika laka labbayk

-Irfan Makki-
