• On his 99th Murder
    he heard someone say
    "you'll be punished tomorrow
    for the crimes you did today."
    So he went to a man
    who was respected and good
    Told him what he'd done
    would he be forgiven if he could?
    The man shoook his head
    and quickly he said
    "Hell is made for people like you
    God'll punish for the people you slew"
    So the man said "oh well
    if my final resting cell
    is that fiery pit of hell
    I might kill you as well"
    But he still felt blue
    With the fact that he knew
    He was not worthy of Allah
    And the tears fell down his face
    As he felt out of place
    In the house for Salah
    Someone heard his weeping
    "What painful secrets are you keeping?
    Why are those your tears that are seeping
    through your clothes?"
    So the man told him
    of the killing of his kin
    knowing this guy would give no salam
    when he found the blood of hundreds on his palm
    "Does God have mercy for people like me?
    Will I get paradise's key?"
    The old man smiled
    said "Oh my child
    His mercy outweighs his wrath
    And to my words take heed
    Stop your bad deeds
    that make others bleed
    move away from this land.
    Make a fresh start
    With those of pure heart
    and from your crimes you will surely part."
    So armed with hope
    With burdens he could cope
    he set out to reach his goal.

    But the Angel of Death claimed his soul.

    This caused a rift
    for two angels wanted to lift
    when time came for his soulshift
    One for punishment for the crimes he gained
    One for mercy for the sins he wanted drained
    So Allah in his wisdom made a decree
    Measure the distance between the sins and piety
    The land his body was found to be
    If he was nearer to the land of sinners
    He will surely not be classed a winner.

    The angels of punishment were sure they'd win
    For the man had stepped and his soul was snatched from him
    But Allah in his mercy made it appear so
    The land his body lay was those who bow low
    The ones with pure heart and offered charity
    So the angels of mercy could take him with clarity.

    They told him "peace, Allah has done a favour on you
    He loved the effort you made, He saw your heart was true."
