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.
