I weep, “O Ali, O Ali”

Thinking of you O Ali;

I feel an ache in my heart.

my hand trembles – 
I try to pick up my pen 

to write, to share your words,


my pen halts and I pause –

the tragedy replays in my mind

sadness drives through me 
a tear drops onto the paper

pangs of sorrow lead 
my pen to stray from the page.

I pick up my pen again
and vaguely sketch a word

O Ali, O Ali 

followed with a full stop.
putting my pen down,

I escape into the darkness
and unremittingly weep.


“Followers of  Ali (AS)  don’t follow Ali because   he’s better   than  Muhammad     (pbuh). They followed Ali because nobody followed Muhammad like Ali did.”

Wish you a good day!

-Esoofi Abd’il Qader
