When Alone, would you be like Ali?

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.

Fear Of the saviour

Imam-Mahdi-12.4000.2400-1

 

You seized the rights of
Allah, given of your leader
From his family you snatched
away every sip of water.

***

Without a sword, he showed you all to
abstain bloodshed and enter God’s path
But instead you killed him and gained
the Most Merciful’s worst wrath

***

I am not surprised why do
you forbid his mourning,
Just as you denied him
water, you deny us grieving.

***

How do we stop, knowingly,
that our lives are always at risk
For only through Hussain, in this
land human rights still exists

***

You see, we try to change, and
to change we need to live
For our leader’s return every
sacrifice, we are willing to give.

***

Just like Muhammad, Mahdi too
will be a mercy to mankind
He will show, how God- from
your dark soul’s, you’ve denied.

***

I now know, it’s not hate, against
my pure school of thought
It’s fear, for as believers you’d
be exposed, as an enemy of God

***

 

My just leader

 

haider_haider_by_dea_pride-d50zex5

Only for your mother, the
doors of Kabah, opened
To give you birth, Fatima
Binte Asad, was chosen.
***

In your first vision, your eyes
saw the light of Ahmad
The protector of his nation,
Mustafa’s arms cradled.
***

When no one listened, and
accused Ahmad of his mission
You stood against the odds and
decaled your submission.
***

You then defended, Ahmad in
every battle and oppression
While others ran, for God you
remained firm in your position.
***

You became inseparable
from the messenger of God
You love grew deeper, till you
obeyed without any reward.

***

You became a definition, of how
must the lord be worshiped
You taught us how to love God,
with your actions of leadership
***

You were the only cure, for
Muhammad’s lost nation
They begged for your leadership
in tearful, desperation.

***

But you didn’t agree, instantly,
you knocked from door to door
Asking, is there anyone against
you for becoming their mentor?
***

Pleased was the entire land of Madina,
of you becoming their saviour
For only you were the, the Quran
and Mustafa’s teaching’s armour.

***

I am not surprised, after years of
your rights being unjustly snatched
They begged for you, for in God’s path
only you remained attached.
***
You are my brave, just, leader,
with calamities you taught me
As long as I remain close to God,
everything’s a test and not misery.

***

 

 

Prophet Hud’s oppression

Prophet Hud like Mehdi was also
asked to remain in occultation
for in his absence, the people
had lost their faith in his mission.
***
They asked for their saviour, just
like we’ve been asking since years
Yet when Hud appeared, his was
nearly strangled, with scars & tears.
***
The people of Hud were asked leave
the worship of idols, the difference
between us and them, we still worship
our desires and think we are pious.
***
I understand now, why has Allah
still kept our saviour hidden
For he knows, his representor
would not receive, submission.

Honoring the Mother of Ali

I wonder about this lady, who
until her death was praised
Known as ‘my second mother’
Mustafa, repeatedly claimed.
***

From the loss of his father,
mother and grandfather
Ali’s mother, took care of
Ahmad, unlike any other.
***

She nurtured Muhammad, and
fed him before her own children
While being poor, she understood
the worth of Ahmad’s mission.
***

I am not longer surprised, why was the birth
of Ali inside the Kabah so easily granted
For a lady, who honoured the Prophet of
God, in return of her service, she was gifted.
***

She proved her obedience to Allah,
and he chose her as the mother of Ali
For by her actions, God has shown me,
what is the reward of loving this family.

Lady Maryam (as) and Lady Fatima (sa)

Two ladies of our nation,
were promised heaven
One known as Fatima
and the other, Maryam
***
Prayed, the mother of Maryam, to
have a son, from her beloved Lord
And in return she vowed, to make
her child a pure servant of her God.
***

Accepted was her prayer, and down
came Maryam as purity’s leader
The promise was kept, and Maryam,
guided her purity like no other.
***

Her purity was so high, that the lord gifted
her a son, named Jesus, our leader.
And due to her strength as a mother,
revealed the Quran, after her, an entire chapter.
***

And when every verse, which spoke of Jesues,
his name was always along with his mother.
For does it not tell us, how great was this
specific lady’s unimaginable, holy status.
***

Then we turn towards Fatima, the
daughter of the Prophet Muhmmad
and just like Maryam, she too remained
pure and God’s beloved, kind servant.
***
Maryam bore hardship, from the
world, for carrying this holy child
while the world spoke of lies, she
held herself above, a woman with pride.
***

And Fatima too suffered, as a child to defend her
father and helped him spread mercy to mankind
And so she too was promised, her from lineage
would be Mehdi, like Jesus to save mankind
***
Doesn’t that amaze you, how our saviours, Jesus and Mehdi will
one day come to remove this world’s misery with kindness and
mercy, for both teach us, justice, strength and purity, we can only
learn and inherent from our ‘mothers’ like Fatima and Mary.
***
So be you are son, or be you a daughter,
never disrespect your mother
When your God has solely chosen
them to be your soul’s teacher.

Permission of Zahra

To enter Lady Fatima’s household,
for the soul of Prophet Muhammad
the angle of death, asked her permission,
before, accepting this very command.
***

That even after being
ordered directly by Allah,
The angle knew, he couldn’t
accept, without Fatima.
***

Yet, isn’t it strange, how those
who claimed to be gifted heaven
Were the ones, who took Zahra’s
rights without any hesitation.
***

When the soul of the best creation,
never departed until Zahra had let go
Can you call him ‘righteous’? when
she said ‘no, I am Zahra’ and he said ‘So?’
***

Burned was her door, and our
Queen fell hopelessly on the floor,
crushed with a nail, upon her ribs,
she lost her innocent, unborn.
