The Silent Killers of Hussain

28

He knew from the beginning
of his very first breath,
How tragically he would
be slaughtered to death.

***
He saw his grandfather,
mother and father weep.
No matter what this promise
he declared to always keep.

***

To rescue the nation of Ahmad,
became Hussain’s ultimate mission.
Wont the saviour arrive when he
is called to stop oppression?

***

Knowing where death awaits, to the
call of those people, marched Hussain

They betrayed him due to cowardness,
leaving him slayed and broken.

***

Would you not rush to help
those who are your beloved?
Then why do you question
Hussain, when he kept his word.

***

You see, this was their test, by
God would Hussain be saved?
Together they could have won
against Yazid, instead they cheated.

***

 

They were sacred from Yazid’s judgement
but now they can’t escape from God’s
How would they face Muhammad, while
letting his family remain without shrouds?

Faith cannot be spread using a sword

In the era of darkness, a radiant
light from the heavens, took birth,
With his actions not just words,
he guided humans to self-worth.

***

He taught them, who was their
lord, the most merciful of all,
despite our sins, if sincere, we
can be forgiven before we fall.

***

We are often told, no matter
what, to always fear our Lord,
‘To hell’ one is condemned,
before God’s judgement is called.

***

But you see, Hussain, just like
Muhammad, didn’t force religion,
For faith which has reached the
heart can never hurt any creation.

***

I now understand, why in Karbala
Hussain never used his sword,
He sacrifice his family and him-
self, to save the faith of his Lord.

***

So, hold on to this very faith, which
was sent to cure every heart ache
Be cautions, in the name of religion,
never force anyone, to hopelessly break.

Sakina Imprisoned

A soul so pure, that couldn’t be
held within sham’s prison
To Sakina reaches death, once
and for all – giving her soul freedom.

***
Yet, I can still
hear her cries,
screaming she
is orphaned.

***

Though death let her
free, her grief for
her father, has forever
left her imprisoned

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.

Abbas protects the proof of God

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.

Who was Imam Muhammad Baqir – Walidat

 

A unique star among the 14,
purified by our ‘giving’ Lord
Known as Baqir, the 5th
Imam, ‘gifted’ to us by God
***
His mother was the
daughter of Hasan
While his father was
the son of Hussain.
***

Both masters of the youth
of paradise, connected,
to Muhammad Baqir, as
their actions he reflected.
***

Predicted it was by Muhammad,
years later, among his lineage,
a child holding his name, would
proclaim superiority in knowledge.

***
Commanded was Jabir Al Ansari,
to give Baqir, Mustafa’s salutations
Not just in features, but as a leader
Baqir, had lead Muhammad’s nation.

***

Trapped inside the sealed rock of
untruth, remained the ‘truth’ hidden
It called for help and Baqir, slip the
untruth’s trap, letting truth open.
**

I now understood why the Imam was
known as ‘the splitter of knowledge’
to follow, this ‘gift’ sent by my lord,
I dismissed all to follow his passage

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.
