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?

Lesson from the People of Prophet Salih (as)

pexels-photo-355580

 

With compassion, by Salih, the
nation of Thamud, was requested
Only though knowing their Lord,
mankind could remain protected.

***

Sent directly by God, a
medicine to every living soul,
to fill what was once empty,
preserving them to be whole.

***
To prove how true was his noble
message, he was demanded,
To ‘emerge a she-camel, from
a rock,’ they blindly worshipped.

***

God accepted their request
and showed his miracle
in return, water must always
be in access to the she-camel.

***

They allowed the access of water as
commanded for just a short period
Once again, they grew ignorant
and from God’s path, they deviated.

***

 

It was just merely water, that
they felt too stingy to share
A miracle they once asked God,
they now planned to massacre.

***

 

I wonder, if I were God, how
angered of this act would I be
But he is the Lord of All, most
merciful, if only they could see.

***

For this sin committed, God still
gave them a fair chance, in 3 days
Their punishment would be called
off, if only they seeked forgiveness.

***

Proudly, they challenged
the punishment of God,
upon themselves they
called the wrath of God.

***

I now wonder how many times do
we receive gifts without asking
A gift directly from God, to keep
our souls pure, from sinning.

***

Everything the Lord does,
is always best for us
So why do we abuse his
gift, becoming more worse.

***

 

 

 

Explore deep inside

‘My kind is much better
than your kind’
I wonder, what exactly
have they defined?

***
One who claims to be
known from a superior race
Show me, how are you higher
and others are a disgrace?

***

Can you prove me, just one race
has served all of humanity?
With no injustice ever done, while others
have caused nothing but misery?

***

I can’t and nor can you bring
such an impossible prove
For I, myself, full of faults
have so much to improve.

***

Day in and day out, we all strive
to live and become the best
But when you discriminate,
you steal our path to this quest

***

You see, no one was not born with any
special talents, due to their nationalities
We learned to differ, according to our
interests, forming different personalities
***

 

 

And so, no one was born racist,
it was never their mentality
Taught to dislike those, without
knowing, created bigotry

***

‘My kind is much better
than your kind’
I wonder what exactly
have they defined?

***

Could you create a painting
bright with just one colour?
How would you remove its
dullness, I now wonder?

***

For colours only makes a painting
more beautiful to the eyes
And as humans, let’s explore,
what does each hold deep inside.

***

When throwing a small stone
across water, can cause a ripple
Speak up against racism, make
a difference, even if it’s little.

***

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

***

Prophet Yusuf (Jonah) True self

For being loyal and
a kind-hearted son
Without envy, or
jealousy from anyone

***

Yusuf was given the
knowledge of dreams
For God rewards the
doer of good deeds.

***

To test, how obedient was
Allah’s this gifted slave
Yusuf was trapped, and his
soul, he alone could save.

***

When the wife of the Aziz,
asked him to join this sin
He proclaimed, from his true
self, he could never give in.

***

‘No good comes to those who
do wrong’ He would explain
Ignored the words of God, she
approached him without no shame.

***

Yusuf, then asked his Lord, to show
him a way out of this wrath.
To the doer of good, who passed
his task. God then opened a path.

***

Though he escaped, he was
still unjustly imprisoned
A gift from this world, he
received for being resistant.

***

But you see, Yusuf
was never sad.
He accepted prison
with open hands.

***

For he knew, he was free
in the sight of his Lord
And any calamity shrinks,
with the protection of God

When Alone, would you be like Ali?

 

19095660_10213156276930310_1446861022841973342_o

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.

Fear Of the saviour

Imam-Mahdi-12.4000.2400-1

 

You seized the rights of
Allah, given of your leader
From his family you snatched
away every sip of water.

***

Without a sword, he showed you all to
abstain bloodshed and enter God’s path
But instead you killed him and gained
the Most Merciful’s worst wrath

***

I am not surprised why do
you forbid his mourning,
Just as you denied him
water, you deny us grieving.

***

How do we stop, knowingly,
that our lives are always at risk
For only through Hussain, in this
land human rights still exists

***

You see, we try to change, and
to change we need to live
For our leader’s return every
sacrifice, we are willing to give.

***

Just like Muhammad, Mahdi too
will be a mercy to mankind
He will show, how God- from
your dark soul’s, you’ve denied.

***

I now know, it’s not hate, against
my pure school of thought
It’s fear, for as believers you’d
be exposed, as an enemy of God

***
