Where Is The Peacock's Throne - Poem by Kazi Nazrul Islam
'Where is the Peacock's Throne,
And where the Ruling Role? '
Question the Muslims, with tears in eyes,
And complain to Thee, O Lord of Paradise
Where is Khalid, the Hero of Hundred Fights,
And Tarik and Musa, Commanders bright?
No more is Hazrat Ali, with his Zulfiqar!
No more is Umar Khattab, with his Islami fervour!
No more are the soldiers brave and bold
Who had once conquered the entire world!
Where is Hasan, and where is Huseyn?
Where are the heroic Martyrs who gave
Their precious lives for Thy sake?
Where is that fervor of Faith?
And that might and main?
Gone from the orbit of Fate
Is the glorious Crescent!
Only darkness deep and down:
Pervades the horizon!
