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.
As a new born, the words
in praise his only lord
voice, Husain was told
Instilled into his soul, to
obey the best creator
And blessed with the best
of creation to be his teacher
And Ali, his father for whom
giving up was never an answer
to Fatima, a Queen who taught
how to be a compassionate leader
From Hussain’s first breath his family knew
the journey of his stand until his tragic death
But never once did they lose hope in their lord,
for the ultimate truth their vision always held.
And with such heavy trials, in this
world, this household had lead
they taught, that even when alone,
without God you are never left
For they gave everything,
from the only piece of bread
to their beloved son and
grandson’s holy head.
To this religion and its teachings
where no other books, read
to remain human, even when
humanity was tortured to death
-Years ago, with her hands raised
She prayed for her uncle’s return,
He promised her, he would bring water, but got killed by the oppressors.
-For she too had promised the children around her,
That no matter what, her uncle Abbas will bring them water.
-In grief, Abbas was ashamed
For he could not fulfill, the little child’s request.
But now I see, millions around his shrine, without a doubt, accepting their request.
– It now makes me realize, the prayer of Sakina was indeed accepted
Since she raised her hands, with believing faith, towards her beloved.
– In return, for her sake, Abbas accepts anyone’s call
And makes sure his Lord accepts without fail and fulfills them all.
