In Praise Of Nobility (Four)


Remorseful was the spear of Wahshi
Piercing the heart of the noble one again and again
Tearing down his smile
Bringing to the ground a pillar that strong
Hamza! Hamza! Hamza radiyal Laahu anhu
Had he only known
This nobility deserved no pain
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
How pathetic was the freedom which he yearned
Sad indeed was that which he earned
Soon freedom felt empty of promise
The nobility of the noblest of the nobles came to bare
Submit to Al-Gafuur you who did me harm
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
I bowed to that made of the hands
That woman was never my wife
My soul is stained with a blood so clean and pure
Doom he felt for hope was gone
Don't despair of My Mercy my slave
So it was revealed to bring back hope
Be my witness that God is Allah
Be my witness that he is rasuulul Laah
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
Brotherhood was established again
The murderer and the noble shared a plate
With passion he killed the liar
That one who posed a nabiy
Wahshi! Wahshi! Wahshi radiyal Laahu anhu
So it was with the men of old
The noble one their teacher and friend
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
Blessed be the voice of Bilal
Who to prayer the ummah had called
Ahad! Ahad! Ahad he exclaimed in pain
You could have his body take it, it is yours
No, not his heart and this soul that lived
To Allah it belonged and so he proved
His voice was quiet for the noble one was gone
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
Where are you who dare slander this man?
Where are you who dare mock this man?
Would that you knew this and more
Yet your slander and mockery will harm him not
No, you cannot dare kill this love
His light shines, his greatness is rare
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.
