Tears of Blood
Built by Angels as the House of Ateeq,
Then by Adam
Marked by Abraham’s feet
The Holy Kaba was built, and built again
The symbol of Monotheism, the Secret of Human
A sign of unity and for the worship of One
The direction of Hymn for all under the Sun
She is our symbol
She stood in the barren valley with conviction
Persevering under all extreme condition
Her family the Hanifs
Her religion their Peace (Islam)
Yet do we realize..
That She was skillfully placed
Amongst the Valley of Bekkah
To be protected by the Mountains of Makkah.
The gracious Desert surrounding her,
Yet fertile as “Stop Flowing, Stop Flowing” by the Sigh of Hajer
She stood with this family for even longer
Her love for them, her attachment..
Likened to Mother Earth
Today she cries blood
Her ancient family has been snatched,
Call it rape or murder
The worst brutalities in her history..
She sees it all
She witness all this
It is happening now
Yet she is silent
Her language is ancient unknown to most
Shedding tears of blood
Heralding Divine Mercy,
Likened to none other than Noah’s flood
Her heart has been pierced akin to genocide’ How dare they commit these injustices’
‘My natural family, what’s happened to them?’
Who is listening, who is to defend this onslaught against my honor?
Surely this is the sign of the Final Hour!
So She sent her armies,
Who are silent, sincere and loyal
To seek her Imam who is most royal
Her spiritual Stewarts
“Lee elafi Quraysh”
Like the Ababeel,
The Awliya, the Nuqabah, the Nujabah,
The Ruqbah and Budala,
The Awtad and Al Aqtaab,
All Her Men,
With Her Cry She Summons
Labaik! They reply the era is nigh
For this House to wipe
Her tears of blood dry.
