By Halima Shode
The desires lust and greed,
Dwells in the body of man,
An internal battle ever raging,
You must guard as best as you can.
To treat lust there is marriage,
To cure greed, give in charity,
These acts of worship are prescribed,
So a believer may achieve tranquillity.
The temptation to sin
Is made stronger by desire,
Pray for your Lord to guide your way,
And good habits to acquire.
This world will not last for ever,
Your Lord sees and hears all things,
Your desires may be a test from Him,
One of the many events He will bring.
