In Praise of Nobility (Fifteen)


So many had struggled for the love of this man
If you obeyed him, you earned the love of al-Wadud
His command, great men obeyed
His smiles so many yearned to see
His tears, so much sorrow it brought
He was a man, perfect in character
The companion of men eager to learn
The companion of women eager to search
He was a man, one like no other
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
Shall I tell to you the story of the Muhaajiruun?
Had they not with him suffered torture?
Had they not with him journeyed
Where he goes, where they go
If he was here, they had to be here
Blessed be the Muhaajiruun
Great men and women who lived this life
Away from their shelter they had gone
On hot deserts they had trekked
For the light which the beloved showed
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
Shall I tell to you again the story of the Ansaar?
Had they not their lands readied?
For the noble feet on it will step
Did they not their chest widen?
Did they not their arms open?
Did they not the Muhaajirun ready to receive?
Did they not rejoice for the praised one to them came?
Had they not their lands and properties shared?
Blessed be the Ansaar
Great men and women who breathed this air
Their hearts full of love
For a man, one like no other
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
We are probably the best of his lovers
The Ansaar in joy had thought and hoped
No, we are the best of his lovers
With him we had come
The Muhaajiruun in happiness had thought and hoped
The love of the beloved and his Lord they yearned
You, O Ansaar! You are my brothers!
There could be nothing more important
The Ansaar believed and were glad
You, O Muhaajiruun! I am one of you!
There could yet be nothing more essential
The Muhaajiruun believed and were grateful
Such was the man Muhammad al-Mustapha
The man who had sown into hearts love
The man who had harvested from men love
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
This is the nobility about which I sing
This is the nobility I live to praise
This is the nobility whose love drunken me
This is the nobility I wish to see
This is the nobility I pray to touch
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
