Dear Editor:

I am a seventh-grade student and wanted to remind my fellow citizens that love of one’s country is part of Muslim faith, so I wrote a poem.

“Love of One’s Country”

The love of one’s country

Comes from one’s heart.

The strength of the bond

Won’t tear things apart.

The love of one’s country

Is part of one’s faith.

The peace found within,

Like heaven’s open gates.

To love the people

And love each place

Brings glory and joy

To every lit face.

Staying true to one’s country

Brings peace to one’s heart.

Just as the Painter finds peace

In painting His art.

So says Muhammad,

The Messenger of Peace.

Love your country

From her mountains to seas.

Husna Ahmed Mirza
