Quran And The TV Guide

They lie on the table side by side

The Holy Qur’an and the TV Guide

One is well worn and cherished with pride

Not the Qur’an, but the TV Guide

One is used daily to help folks decide

Not the Qur’an, 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 confide

No, not the Qur’an, but the TV Guide

The Word of Allah is seldom read

Maybe a verse before they fall into bed

Exhausted and sleepy and tired as can be

Not from reading the Qur’an – from watching TV

So then back to the table side-by-side

Lie the Holy Qur’an and the TV Guide

No time for prayer, no time for the Word

The plan of worship is rarely heard

But forgiveness of sin, so full and free

Is found in the Qur’an – not on TV!
