(My Muharram Reflections)
As Muharram comes and quickly goes, What do we do to alleviate Imam’s (as) woes?
Do we simply come, cry and leave?
Our eyes faithful, yet our hearts deceive.
Our beloved stopped a battle to pray Salaat
Yet we find our speed increases in every Rak’ah
Are we doing enough for Imam Hussain (as)? Or God forbid, has he died in vain?
Every sin we make is an arrow thrown
Is it not enough that he died alone?
320 wounds from arrows and spears
Yet to his message, we sometimes fail to adhere
Every year to visit Karbala we yearn
We ask daily, when will it be my turn?
When will we see heaven on Earth?
The place our hearts have been ever since birth
The lessons gained from Ashura are aplenty
Honour, sacrifice, dignity, bravery
Despite Yazid’s corruption, prevailed
Even it meant Zaynab’s hair to be unveiled
When I think of Karbala, I think of Zaynab (sa)
Despite the calamities she thanked her (God)
Just a fraction of her patience would be an honour
In light of our Queen, ‘the untaught scholar’
Everyone speaks of the valour of Abbas (as)
Yet it is his Akhlaq that really strikes the heart
A dry thirsty mouth that refused to accept the water
In remembrance of his even thirstier master
The list of personalities becomes endless
For it becomes impossible to describe what was witnessed
From Zahra’s broken rib, to Hussain’s broken back
Sacrifices for us so that our faith remains in tact
So may today be our day of change
For the sake of Imam Sajjad (as), locked in chains
Hussain a.s died to save our religion.
Now it’s up to us, to be of the 313
