A Tribute From the Poet


Allahu Akbar!
Allahu Akbar!
From Allah comes today
Rahmat, Kauthar.
Those of whom Allah is patron
This victory is of them,
It is the victory of God's Will,
Not for our vain fame.

It is a victory, but
Merely the stepping stone, no more;
From so much bondage-affliction
Toward above we have to soar.

So much division, schism
Jealousy, greed and arrogance,
All these will simply disappear
With His one merciful glance.

You are the new travelers
You are bound toward Him,
Following your footsteps
Here comes a heavenly beam.

Yes, coming are the travelers
Young warriors of new age,
Soon world's misery and suffering
Will be confined in their cage.

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
