Quran and TV Guide

They lie on the tables side by side-

The Holy Quran and the TV Guide.

One is well-worn and cherished with pride.

Not the Quran , but the TV Guide.

One is used daily to help folks decide.

Not the Quran , but the TV Guide.

As the pages are turned, what shall they see?

Oh, what does it matter, turn on the TV

So they open the book in which they could confide.

No, not the Quran,  but the TV Guide.

The word of Allah is solemn read.

Maybe a verse before they fall into bed.

Exhausted and sleepy and tired as can be.

Not from reading the Quran, from watching TV

So then back to the table side by side,

Lie the Holy Quran and the TV Guide.

No time for prayer, no time for the word,

The plan of Istiqama is seldom heard.

But forgiveness of sand, so full and free,

Is found in the Quran, not on TV.
