Alone in worship, day and
night he would remain
For alone, your souls,
one day will also be taken.

***

He showed the world, the master of his
and every creation is only Allah.
While his isolation with God was
feared, he remained firm in his Salah.

***

Ibn Mujlim, sought a deep desire
to marry a woman, as a condition
Accepted would be his proposed,
if completed Ali’s assassination.

***

While Ali remained lost in
prayer, conversing with his Lord
Like a coward, attacked ibn Muljim
poisoning Ali with his sword.

***

In this sacred month
of forgiveness, ibn Muljim
For the sake of his desires,
betrayed this religion.

***

I wonder, are you and I
any different than him..
Before you put desires
above God, think again.

***

When alone, would you be like Ali,
lost in his Lord’s remembrance..
Or like his killer, lost in fulfillment
of desires- chosen to be forsaken.

***
