Poetic accolade: “The one whom Allah loves…”
By: Shehryar Niazi
Be it Badr, Uhud or Khaibar,
We hear the cry, Haidar - Haidar.
We see his shining sword strike
the ones whom Allah dislikes.
All those who even dare
to fight him and aren't aware
of his valor - can't survive.
They shall loose their lives.
And there is one who claims to be
the greatest warrior of Arabia - but see
the mighty sword falls on him too.
Even though to challenge him were few.
The Muslims are struck with terror.
They can't conquer the fort of Khaibar.
Each attack they make is turned back.
The will to fight they utterly lack.
The one whom Allah loves, then comes
and out of fear the enemy is numb.
He takes the standard in one hand
and leads this seemingly defeated band.
A group of losers, say the books of history
under his command proceed to their victory.
His advances no one can ever cut short.
Finally he conquers the impenetrable fort.
In another battle the Prophet is betrayed.
As his followers have become so afraid.
They leave him wounded and run away.
Kufr still seems to hold it's sway.
But there is Haidar e Karrar to aid him.
A lost battle, he will be able to win.
Whenever Asadullah will be there,
to fight Islam, no one shall dare.
These astonishing feats no one can hide,
as time and again he turns the tide.
A battle comes and a battle goes by
Islam's standard always remains high.
So when in Ghadir - he is proclaimed
Mawla - that Muslims should follow him.
The Prophet's mission is complete.
He alone can bear the burden of this throne.
Only he can feel the Muslim's needs,
make sure they perform good deeds,
and guide them to the path of salvation.
He deserves the rulership of this nation.
He has the understanding and wisdom
to be the Imam in Allah's kingdom.
He is the gateway to the city of knowledge
and above all he has the most courage,
which is seen by his extraordinary feats.
With his scholarly skills none can compete.
Admire his piety. He is not guided by greed.
The Prophet of Allah - only he can succeed.
