Muharram 1438

I see an injured man lay on
the ground without his head,
through murder they thought
in erasing his name they would succeed
___
Stripped were the rights to give
him a single shroud was taken.
and they robbed him from
the ring Mustafa had given

___
Yet, this man whose own blood
alone covered him as his shroud
For this very blood belonged to Muhammad
and wrapped with purity his body was found
___
The land of Karbala was now
covered with this shroud
For the pure blood of Muhammad
sunk within its sand
___

And this sand became a cure
for God’s every creation
Verily the spilling blood of Husayn
created this land to be a visiting obligation
___

I ask about those who
denied him water
For now they have
deprived themselves of kawther
___

Have they forgotten whose
beloved grandson is Al Hussain
He is the grandson of the
one who ascended the heavens.
___

Have they forgotten, whose
beloved son is Al Hussain?
his father be the man who’s one
strike is worth more than the 7 heavens
___
To search for Muharram I find no
need to look for the moon
For the land of Karbala will
turn red out of grief soon
___
For the moon of Muhammad
was eclipsed in his own blood
the Euphrates dried whilst the
desert was filled with blood
___

This was the sacrifice
of Mustafa’s household
For without them, God’s
message would not be told
___
They were created for us
to understand who is our Lord
and they gave away everything
for the Allah’s noble cause.
