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.
-Lives are taken, by the fake call of ‘honouring’
it was a tragedy indeed, for no one deserves murdering
Don’t comment on who they were, or what did they deserved
They are no longer here and speaking ill won’t get you an award
But this recent story, grabbed human attention
Voices were raised, against those dark hearted creation
-It makes me happy, to know humanity still exists
but may I ask you, why is Zahra’s tragedy still a myth
Tell me why were the books of history torn and burned
Did she not deserve a voice, wasn’t she the daughter of Muhammad?
Why do you hide, curse and fight
when I mention where is Zahra’s right
From heaven’s she was sent,
even purity was shy from her scent
-But still along with her child, her life was taken
Behind the burning door, her tragedy too was kept hidden
I now ask those who say, without a doubt no lives of Human
Be it men, women, or children should be taken in God’s name
But what about the pure Queen of heaven,
why do you silence me when I mentioned her and her eleven?
-So before you say you stand strong against humanity
I ask you, for once turn your heart towards Baqi
Build again the walls you have taken down out of ignorance
Read and learn, who have you avoided before the Mehdi’s appearance
For just once, if you try your best to know
It was Muslims, who hurt Zahra at Muhammad’s home
May be then no lives would be taken in the name of honour
If only you stood against the right of your Prophet’s daughter
