When blood flows from 7 skies – an elegy on Prophet Martyrdom

By: Habib al-Miqdad
Poetess: Mardhiya

The last breaths that the Beloved takes;
Zahra, shall spend the night awake.
How can sleep drift onto her eyes?
When blood flows from the seven skies…
Why does the night seem so long?
Why are the birds not singing tonight?
Why has pain filled Zahra's heart?
Why does the moon seem to cry?
Tonight, is the last night of living for the Prophet;
Tonight, is the beginning for the sufferings of Ali.
Tonight the sky consoles Zahra,
Tonight Khadija greets her Muhammad.

  "Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."MORE ..
