Meniti Titian Tuah Kerana zuhud impikan Syurga
Md Radzi Ismail

Sambutlah tangan Ku Tuah Aku lemah memikul amanah Tanah merekah jurang berlurah lahar pasti muntah Bukalah mulut Ku Tuah Baca Qalamullah Sebelum terkejang lidah Bersihkan hati Ku Tuah dengan Zikirullah Sebelum ia melegam punah Kerdipkan mata Ku Tuah Tatap Kalimah Allah Sebelum gelap cahaya tak bersimbah Tajamkan telinga Ku Tuah Dengar kata hikmah Sebelum tuli tulah menanah Bukalah Minda Ku Tuah Jamah Ilmu Allah Sebelum tertutup pintu Kaabah Mekah La Haulawala Qu wata’Illa Bil’la HilA’liyil Ad’zim
