My Soul Contemplates Lady Al-Zahra (As)

Recommended Posts

The second poem I wrote. I just like to share it with you without pretending that it would have any special merit. This poem is inspired by my contemplation of the person of Lady Fatimah al-Zahra (as) and the peace that gives to my soul.

 

 My soul contemplates Lady Al-Zahra (as)

 

As I walked the roads of many lands,

I saw the beggars of this world stretching out their hands,

People desiring wealth and glory they can possess,

believing their happiness lies in wealth and fine dress.

 

Long have I ponderd which way to follow,

for the promises of this world often prove hollow.

Power, might and riches cannot bring true light,

the rulers of this world destroy each other for vain might.

 

But when all seemed dark there appeared a radiance so strong,

shining forth from the place where all souls belong.

It is the light of a Sun not from this earth,

a treasure of the highest worth.

 

It is the fragrance of a Flower nipped in the bud,

a being too pure for this world's mud.

A Lady whose virtuous light drives out all fears,

for her passing the faithful still shed countless tears.

 

Her Radiance was a beauty too great for this world to stand,

and so her light was taken away to dwell in the Eternal Land.

There she walks in gardens evergreen,

leaving behind her children with the sure hope of their Deen.

 

But still the rays of her love touch the faithful one,

embracing his soul with her light under and upon.

Filling the upright with chastity, love and strength,

to follow his Lady to the Paradise she went.

 

Now I know that by following this Radiance I will find the way,

to stand firm on the Final Day.

When all wrongs will be righted and judgements heard,

and our Lady will once again walk this earth.

Thank you! I am very happy that you like it.

 

I've decided to put the poem on a blog site ( http://sarastro-lucis.tumblr.com ) and sign it with the pen name "Sarastro Lucis", simply to be able to sign the poem without having to give my own name. You are free to share the poem as you see fit but please put the pen name underneath it. :)

are you really not a shia ^_^

Thank you for your reaction!

 

No at the moment I am not a Shia. But when I study the Ahlulbayt my souls burns with a great joy and so I want to express this love to them in my own limited way. But who knows what the future holds. :)
