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.
In Karbala, both of his
hands were unjustly taken
For in return, 2 wings were
gifted to him in heaven.
I now understand why was Hazrat
Abbas given something so high
He protected the proof of God,
with every pain and every cry.
With no vision, within his heart
he saw God in his every action
Yet with clear sight, the poof of
God, from us remains hidden.
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.
