Rasheed collected his tattered essence.
Coalescing before a great shining gate.
Awareness fast returning, he managed an 'ahah!'
'This must be paradise, my reward surely lies within!'
Jagged edges of his soul essence shivered, anticipating...
Suddenly, a voice filled all of space, thundering "NO!"
"You shall not pass! You are destined for eternal torment!"
Rasheed, experiencing shock, managed a 'why not?'
'I have sacrificed myself for the cause, given my life in the Jihad?'
"YOU have murdered many innocent people!"
"YOUR KIND is sapping the will and hope of a batttered populace."
"All they desire is Peace and Freedom - all you bring is DESPAIR!"
YOUR cause is a Jihad of evil, your harvest is nothing more than
Hatred, Pain, Misery, Death."
"For THESE SINS, Rasheed, you will only know eternal torment. Now Begone!"
And with that, two winged creatures, with terrible countenances, bore
What was left of Rasheed away and down, downward.....

No rhyme or meter, but it gets the point across.
