Poem on Bibi Zainab (as)

Recommended Posts

Salam,

This is a poem by Nouri Sardar - 'By the Blood of Hussein'

By the blood of Hussain… we will always remain
The name Yazid will never last… your name none will remember
The name Zainab will always last… and it will last forever

* * *

To Yazid they bring Ali’s daughter captive
The anger of Fatima they all relive
Don’t think to her, permission to live, they’d give
It was Zainab that allowed them all to live

She breaks apart her chains… and her voice is Hussain’s
They let her speak, and with her tongue… Umaya she would slaughter
The name Zainab will always last… and it will last forever

* * *

She speaks, knowing her words will never fail
It’s as if Haider’s hiding beneath her veil
Don’t think after Karbala she was frail
Her words like arrows upon Yazid hail

She tears apart his throne… and scares him to the bone
Hussain returns with his revenge… in the voice of his sister
The name Zainab will always last… and it will last forever

* * *

The sword of Ali descends upon her tongue
She fears nothing except the Lord who is One
O’ Yazid, you let her speak, what have you done?
If she raises her hands, help you will no-one

At her words, mountains fall… tyrants, to her, they crawl
Daughter of Safa and Marwa… and they shake at her anger
The name Zainab will always last… and it will last forever

* * *

In her shadow they see her father appear
I’m the lion that all other lions fear
When I’m angry the angel of death will hear
And you’re holding my brother’s head on a spear

Listen to me, I swear… your soul, apart, I’ll tear
I hold your soul within my hand… if I want, it will shatter
The name Zainab will always last… and it will last forever

* * *

Understand when I say if I give the call
From the sky the moon upon your head will fall
If I wanted, to my feet I’d make you crawl
Your life, your throne, your palace, I’d take it all

My uncle is Hamza… my father is Haider
The backs of their heads, they had eyes… to them armies surrender
The name Zainab will always last… and it will last forever

* * *

I swear by the stars, the skies and by my Lord
Till the Day of Judgement we will be adored
Don’t think you killed us when Hussain’s blood, you poured
Today my brother’s blood defeated your sword

My brother never dies… and soon Mehdi will rise
Do not think that death will save you… your bodies he’ll recover
The name Zainab will always last… and it will last forever

* * *
