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

***

The Tragedy of Zahra

Sleepless she became, from her
separation of her beloved father
Motives had changed and gates
were shut on Mustafa’s daughter.

***

A sorrow so great, that I wonder
how could the earth not tremble?
The world left dim, while paradise
rejoiced Muhammad’s arrival.

***

But now his household, was
a grave target of oppression
Revealing, after Muhammad,
their true, dark intention.

***

Commanded a slave, despite her
presence, to set the holy house on fire,
‘Fatima is in there!’ said a man, ‘So what!’
was the oppressors inhuman answer.

***

Kicked was the door, behind which Fatima
stood to protect her appointed Imam
They caused her to miscarry Mohsin, she
blead, crying ‘why do you cause us harm?’

***

Hidden was her grave, from those opposed
injustices upon her and God’s chosen leader
‘Forgiven’ one says, how? while after her,
her children too suffered like no other.

***

Do you carry Hussain’s lessons?

From people’s hearts
which deprived mercy
he sacrificed everything
to show them humanity

***
And yet this massacre,
done by Yazid’s army
until today, is buried
and unrecognized by many

***

With no political ambition
or material aims
he came to reform his
grandfather’s name

***
Hussain wanted to teach
good and forbid evil
show kindness, give
other and avoid the devil

***
Nothing but the best he
wanted for his lord’s creations
yet we repay him by allowing,
injustice and oppression.
***
So point not on others, whether
they belong in hell or heaven
ask yourself first, does your
action portray Hussain’s lesson?

Zainul Abideen ‘ s Faith

I wonder what faith did imam Zainul Abideen have,
From watching his family slaughtered to aunts and sisters head covers snatched.
The fact that this tragedy didn’t make him go in sane,
Proves how pure and true was the message of my Hussain.
