83 Those Who Give Short Measure: Poems based upon the Qur’an

“Justice Scales” by Emory Douglas (Art exhibit: “It Takes a Nation — Art for Social Justice”) http://www.american.edu/cas/museum/gallery/2016/it-takes-a-nation.cfm

Allah ordains balance;
Sijjin and Illiyyin
Hell and Paradise
Punishment and Reward — 
Al-Hakam will weigh
with mercy and justice,
and whatever you have done to others
will be revealed — 
those who used the balance for their own benefit,
will be denied His blessings,
and those who blessed others
by pouring out in abundance
will be blessed by Allah.
