The Candles - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan
Leave us behind, we carry the lantern,
In the dark age, you lifted our spirits,
Remembrance though, of a noble heart, you!
We pray to the Almighty Allah, never fail us -
By the soil we swear, by souls we bear,
By the path they have trod, by the candles they have lit.
In the memory of Dr Hassan Khan Wazir, who was a physician, philanthropist, literati, - an elegant man with a gentle soul. Who conceived the idea of an organization, Wana Welfare Organization, which we are now illustrious members, and following in his footsteps, dedicated to the community. We pay our tribute to his service to us all and pray that his soul rest in peace and be rewarded in the Hereafter.
