Let Our Cries Come Unto You
A response to 9/11: Prayers of anguish and words of solace from the world's religious traditions.Pleas for mercy and aid
Laments and mourning
Rest for the dead and the suffering
Comfort and solace
Pleas for mercy and aid
I rock with grief,
fear and trembling overwhelm me;
for I see violence and strife in the city.
I say, "If only I had wings like a dove
That I might fly away and find rest."
Behold, I cry out, "Violence!" but I am not answered;
I call aloud, but there is no justice.
To Allah we belong and to him we shall return. Oh Allah, help me in my calamity and replace it with good.
