In Praise Of Nobility (Six)

Will the sinner from him not learn?
When at night he remained standing for his Lord
She, the rosy and lovely had been perplexed
The past is erased
The now does not count
The future has been dealt with
So then why these swollen feet?
Shall I not gratitude show?
For on me has mercy rained
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
Behind him, he stood bright and noble
Before him lay that man
He who passionately said this
Yet unfortunately did he do that
He who had deemed it fit to swim in his pool
The pool of the rasuul of Allah
For with his equality he thought he could vie
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
Such was the man, Abdullah ibn Ubayy ibn Salul
He who traded honour for a title so bad
The chief of hypocrites, he had been known
Yet for him the Praised One prayed
His lover said no again and again
The nobility of the noblest of the nobles shone again
Istigfaar seventy times and more, that I shall do
To save this soul and so many like it
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
In his bosom the enemy find comfort
In his speech the wise find wisdom
In his behaviour the pious learn lessons
On his path the guided keep focused
He was loved deeply and truly too
He is loved with untainted passion
He will be loved forever and ever too
Salaam and Rahma upon him should rain
Give me my hand so I could write this man
Give me my feet so I could walk this man
Give me my eyes so I could see this man
Give me my voice so I could talk this man
This man whose character was the Book
This man who stood strong and tall
Among the men of old and the new too
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 James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
