We are never forgotten – Lesson from Mary, mother of Jesus

‘Forgotten’ Was what Holy Maryam wished, for
the pain of childbirth, was unbearable to take
And her lord said ‘grieve not, for I have provided
you with food and water, take them for my sake’
***

Worried became Maryam, for without her
child’s father, her purity would be in objection
A vow she made to her lord, to remain silent,
for 3 days to the world’s fake predictions.
***

She was ridiculed day after day, with
names her holy status never ever deserved
She pointed to her son and Jesus spoke,
defending his mother, the words of his lord.
***

For Maryam, kept her promise to her
God, and for 3 days remain in silence
and in return of her obedience, he
made her son, speak in her defence.

***

It amazes me, how our Lord defends us, even
when we feel we should have be forgotten
Yet if we obey him, he always remains, no
matter under what calamities, we have fallen.

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.

 

Named ‘Hasan’ as a revelation

To name his first child, waited Ali,
for the Prophet’s permission
Ascended then Gibrail with the
name ‘Hasan’ being as a revelation.

***

Duplicate in many features and
morals, was Hasan to Mustafa
from the very start, he gained
noble trails from RasulAllah.

***

He received from his father,
Ali, with wisdom and bravery,
& from his mother, perfection in
character, was gained undoubtedly

***

For truly, he imitated the best of
creation in habits and qualities
And so was Hasan, raised in the
household of pure personalities.

***

At age 4, whatever, his two eyes would read,
Hasan’s mind would memorize, them instantly
Sticking next to his Grandfather, always, he
also memorized God’s revelations, blissfully.

***

Such was the love from the
Prophet to his grandson,
where he asked Allah for
his sake, to also love Hassan.

***

Now show me someone, without
hesitation who would ask their lord
to not ask forgiveness, but ‘love’, for
these personalities, we have found.

***
Isn’t that enough, for the entire world to know
about the purity of Zahra & Ali’s household
When without a doubt, no one asks for love,
unless those obedient to their lord, can uphold.

***

The House of Griefs

 

With words she shook, the throne of the
misguided one, who took away her rights
She made the 1st feel guilty of his actions,
once again of guidance she shed the light.

***

Indeed, bad company, is a dark, bloodied stain
which is often very difficult to be removed,
Against Zahra’s right stood the 2nd, and tore
the agreement the 1st signed and approved.

***

From her child being miscarried, to her
rights from her father forcefully denied
Next to baqi, she complained to Mustafa,
for her misfortunes, all day and night.

***

Complained the men of Madina, to Ali,
due to Zahra’s cries, none could sleep
He build for Zahra, a house to weep
Next to Baqi, he named’ The house of griefs’

***

She requested Bilal, to once again
read Ahmad’s call to prayer
Hearing her father’s name,
she fell unconscious, in tears.

***

She spoke now, in the language of
tears, known once as red rose,
she began to wither, slowly, upon
her death, she now stood close.

Tragedy of Muslim Bin Aqeel

Invited by the people of Kufa,
for asking Hussain to arrive
saying they need an imam,
as they felt Islam wouldn’t survive.

***
Trusted by Hussain was
his cousin, Muslim bin Aqeel
He sent him to see the situation,
Kufa’s people had currently been

***

With his two sons, Muhammad
and Ibrahhim, leaving,
Madina to Kufa, unware, their
death would be soon waiting.

***

Reported back to the Imam,
Muslim confirmed their loyalty
Thousands gave their allegiance
to Hussain, yet some hid falsely

***

Among the people were
spies of Yazid, waiting to kill
Muslim and his children, for
their worldly desires, to fulfil

***

And so one false, coward follower,
sundered Muslim bin Aqeel
Trying to leave Kufa, Muslim and
his children found every exit sealed

***

More than 50 thousand solders
of Ibn Ziyad, dragged Muslim’s body
demanding it to be thrown down
from the roof top, mercilessly.

***

At his final moment, Muslim bin
Aqeel, was asked about his last wish,
1st a simple burial, he wanted, yet his
body was thrown down like rubbish

***

And the 2nd he wished, for his Imam
to never enter this ruthless city
until his last breath he wanted
to protect his Muhammad’s legacy.

***

His children too hid in a household
of a childless, generous lady
but her husband wanted a reward
from this world’s most miserly

***

He heard the cries of the Ibrahim and
Muhammad, Muslim’s innocent sons
Chopped their heads, distancing himself
from heaven, in the hereafter was all he won.

Muharram 1438

I see an injured man lay on
the ground without his head,
through murder they thought
in erasing his name they would succeed
___
Stripped were the rights to give
him a single shroud was taken.
and they robbed him from
the ring Mustafa had given

___
Yet, this man whose own blood
alone covered him as his shroud
For this very blood belonged to Muhammad
and wrapped with purity his body was found
___
The land of Karbala was now
covered with this shroud
For the pure blood of Muhammad
sunk within its sand
___

And this sand became a cure
for God’s every creation
Verily the spilling blood of Husayn
created this land to be a visiting obligation
___

I ask about those who
denied him water
For now they have
deprived themselves of kawther
___

Have they forgotten whose
beloved grandson is Al Hussain
He is the grandson of the
one who ascended the heavens.
___

Have they forgotten, whose
beloved son is Al Hussain?
his father be the man who’s one
strike is worth more than the 7 heavens
___
To search for Muharram I find no
need to look for the moon
For the land of Karbala will
turn red out of grief soon
___
For the moon of Muhammad
was eclipsed in his own blood
the Euphrates dried whilst the
desert was filled with blood
___

This was the sacrifice
of Mustafa’s household
For without them, God’s
message would not be told
___
They were created for us
to understand who is our Lord
and they gave away everything
for the Allah’s noble cause.
