Where is your religion


When the uproar in Cairo began
did you stop looking for religion there?
Why did you not defend
the lofty words you profess
truth, justice, ummah...
oh you know better

Have you suddenly found your religion elsewhere?
Or is it still hidden
in the voluminous books you master?
Do we read religion
or do we live religion
let us ponder

Perhaps your deen
is not parallel to the Egyptians' on the street
he who lives and fights for his beliefs
is not the same as the man
who only reads his faith and preach
