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

***

 

Shine for Imam Mahdi (as)

Untitled-1

 

Like the Sun I want to rise,
bright in front of your sight.
Sacrificing for the good, I try
to never dim away my light.
***

For you, I speak against the
wrong and defend what’s right.
And you secure my soul,
form any darkness to ignites.
***

I fear, this light, before you arrive, with my
every fibre, I continuously try to obtain.
But due to my sins, might lose its shine,
tarnishing me into pieces, once again.
***

Yet I know, you’ve raised me to glare
against every cloud and thunder
I plead, approve me as your own
and come back as my just leader.
***

My just leader

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 (as) and Imam Mehdi (as)’s mission to their people.

Approaching towards his death,
Nuh said in his final moment,
After him Hud would be known
as his people’s chosen Prophet.
***
For after his arrival, Nuh had promised,
destroyed would be the deceitful enemies
who harmed his people of year after
year in deep, sorrowful miseries.
***
Appeared not Hud, for a long
time had passed for his arrival
impatient believers, soon left the
truth and walked the path of evil.
***
Witnessing, this change, Hud was asked by
the command of his Lord to remain hidden
Destroyed were those people, until at the
age of 40, Hud appeared again for his mission.
***
Invited this time, through Allah,
Hud approached his people
‘Obey God, for he created you,
worship not the idols of evil’
***
Although they were told, if they
followed Prophet Hud’s lord
increased with wealth would
be their respectful reward.
***
They jumped to strangle the
chosen leader of their time
for over the years, their hearts
were corrupted with such crime
***
For despite how much once they said, they
believed the lord and his Prophet’s mission
deep within their souls, for this world’s
desire they neglection this submission.
***
Muhammad too, was also attacked for
quoting and following Allah’s sermons
but due to his mercy towards mankind,
saved from this wrath were his nation.
***
I know for sure, Imam Mehdi too,
will be generous like his forefather
but I wonder, due to his sermons,
would we treat him like a stranger
***
Perhaps, Mehdi too has tried,
approaching us, his living nation.
But Allah has kept him hidden,
to test us and our 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.

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.
