In Praise Of Nobility (Five)


Risible is the honour they thought they gave him
The writers of that book
They had counted him among a hundred
Yet again they counted him among a hundred
Number one he must be
That they had ascertained
About that they had no doubt
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
His unbent path they did not follow
His rosy path they could not trek
His echt path they never ventured
Yet truth they could not obscure
The nobility of the noblest of the nobles came to bare
That they had witnessed and retold
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
Were I to read to them pages
If words to them I should speak
Were I to tell them the story of this glory
Would they dare to count him among a hundred?
What did they know?
What have they heard?
Yet again what have they seen?
Nothing and absolutely nothing
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
He was a leader with unparalleled leadership
In his friendship there was peace and calm
In his ship none could dare to ride
He was none like the list of hundred
He was rasuulul Laah and nabiyyul Laah
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
Honoured above you and I and they and them
The billions dare not dance in his circle
For he was a man, a mercy upon us
He was a man, awesome in character
He was a man, full of love
He was a man, strong and subtle in manners
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
Have our wealth, be the richest
Have our crown, be our leader
The honourable of women, they you can have
Take them all, they are yours
That the Quraish had sought to give
They did not want that light that shines
How could they when they were blind?
He was a man fine and refined
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
Here was the straight way and that I show you
Nothing more nor less do I request
The noble voice had echoed into ears
Put the sun in my right hand
Place the moon in my left hand yet again
Here was the straight way and that I show you
Nothing more nor less do I request
Such was he who surpassed hundreds
Count him not among them therefore
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 Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
