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.
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.
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
After the death of the son of
the liver eating woman
who ruled over the Muslim’s
for years in oppression
Appointed now by himself,
Yazid stood to be the leader
And another generation’s lives
were now under an oppressor
Whoever, would speak defending the
teachings of Mustafa were executed,
For the basic morals of Human beings
were about to be greatly wounded.
In the call of prayer, a drunk, a miser,
a filthy man’s name was about to be added
How could Hussain, allow, his grandfather’s
sacrifice for this religion to be abandoned.
Hussain was begged by Yazid,
to give him allegiance,
make the master of sins,
a leader of Muhamad’s message.
Don’t you see, it was not for himself
Husayn gave away his head
but for all of mankind, just so the
echoes of humanity could still be kept.
I send my Salutation to the lonely master of Karbala
