Eid Mubarak…. Baghdad!

The month of Ramadan which was revealed in the Qur’an, as guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion”

– Surah Al-Baqarah 2:185

Unaware of God’s plan,

He stepped out in joy,

Eid was near,

Ammi had promised,

“if you keep your roza,

You’ll get more than you want”,

Little did he think,

This time he would celebrate eid with god!!


The five year old,

Clad in white,

Was covered in blood,

Left his abbu and ammi shattered at that sight!

He had been to play,

Never returned?


The red on his white kurta was heart-wrecking,

His body lay in a pile of debris.


That assassin didn’t value life,

Neither his nor the kid’s.


With tears in the eyes and pain in the heart,

This ramadan,

They had gifted God their child!!
