    It was early in the morning at four
    When death knocked at his bedroom door

    Who's there? the sleeping one cried
    I am the Angel of death, let me inside

    At once the man began to shiver
    As one sweating in deadly fever

    He shouted to his sleeping wife
    Don't let him take away my life

    Please go away. O Angel of death
    Leave me alone I'm not ready yet

    My family on me depends
    Give me another chance, I promise for my mistake I'll repent

    The Angel knocked again and again
    Friend I'll take your life without a pain

    The request of Allah is your soul
    I don't do things on my own

    Bewildered man began to cry. As his whole life flashed in front of his eyes
    O Angel of death I am so afraid to die.

    I'll give you gold and be your slave
    Don't send me to the unlit grave

    Let me in O friend the Angel said
    Open the door get up from your bed

    If you do not allow me in
    I'll walk through it like a Jinn

    The man held a gun in his right hand
    Ready to defy the Angel's stand

    I'll point my Gun towards your head
    You dare come in I'll shoot you dead

    By now the Angel was in the room
    Saying O friend prepare for your Doom

    Foolish man Angels do not die
    Put down your gun and do not sigh

    Why are you afraid tell me o man
    To die according to Allah's plan?

    Come smile at me, do not grim
    Be happy to return to him

    O Angel I bow my head in shame
    I had no time to take Allah's name

    From dawn till dust and dust till dawn, I made my wealth
    Without even caring about my health

    Allah's command I never obeyed
    Nor 5 times a day I ever prayed

    A Ramadan came and a Ramadan went
    Never did I ever thought to repent

    The Hajj was already fard on me
    But I would not part from my money

    All charities I did ignore
    Taking usury more and more

    Sometime when I sipped my favourite wine
    With flirting women I sat to dine

    O Angel I appeal to you
    Spare my life for a year or two

    The laws of Quran i'll obey
    And begin Salah this very day

    My fast and Hajj I will complete
    And keep away from every self conceit

    I'll refine from usury
    And give all my wealth to charity

    Wine and wenches I will detest
    Allah's Oneness I will attest

    We Angels do as Allah demands
    We cannot go against his commands

    Death is ordained for everyone
    Father mother daughter or son

    I'm afraid this moment is your last
    Now be reminder of your past

    I do understand your fears
    But now it's too late for your tears

    You lived in this world to score and more
    Never did you, your people adore

    Your parents you did not obey
    Hungry beggars you turned away

    Your two ill-gotten, female offspring
    In night club, for livelihood they sing

    Instead of teaching your children of deen
    Whenever they did something wrong you acted like it was unseen

    You ignore the adhan
    Nor did you read the Holy Quran

    Breaking promises all your life
    Backbiting friends, and always causing strife

    From hoarded goods, great profits you made
    And never cared about the poor workers, who were always underpaid

    Horses and Cards were your leisure
    Money making was your pleasure

    You eat vitamins and grow more fat
    With the poor and sick, you never sat

    A pint of blood you never gave
    Which could have been the little baby's save

    O man you have done enough wrong
    You have good property which would be used for a song

    With the farmers appeal to you
    You did not have mercy that's true

    There is no time for you to repent
    I'll take your soul for which I am sent

    The ending however is very sad
    Eventually the man became mad

    With the cry he jumped out of the bed
    Suddenly he fell down dead

    O reader take the moral from here
    You never know your end maybe near

    Change your life and make amends
    For your deeds your heaven depends
