My Heart Bears Witness to AhdName

Oh Spirit of the Wine

Oh Spirit of Divine

I seek you in the Sinai ocean

and see you in every wave


Oh Spirit of the Wine

Oh Spirit of Divine

I seek you in Sinai’s sky

and feel your breath in the wind


Oh Spirit of the Wine

Oh Spirit of Divine

I seek thee in form

Yet you are the formless and formed


Oh Spirit of the Wine

Oh Spirit of Divine

I seek you upon Tur

and behold you through the sun’s rays

which shone upon Moses

He; love struck for days


Lovers come to Sinai pursuing thee

Oh Noble spirit where thy promised presence resides

You amidst them

We amidst you

Your promised protection

We seek thy shelter



Young Mohammed

Prince of the desert

wrapped in linen garb

your journey commenced

Buhaira you met

the Devoted Monk

Buhaira sought Divine

and witnessed thee!

in Love with thee

in awe for thee

transfixed upon thee

mesmerized by thee

A Prophet he declared

in thee he affirmed

long before the call

Blessed was he

among the first to believe

Prophethood he saw

in the young prince of Arabia

the seal of the Prophets

he witnessed all signs

from every holy scripture

he confirmed you sublime

Fortunate was he

to be graced by thee

love at first sight

his worship; to stare at thee

his worship; tasawwur e bashar

Tasawwru e nuur

this secret worship from time eternal

gazing at thee gazing at light

You walked among bedouins

Innocent’s delight

clouds shaded thee

every tree bowed

“Peace be upon thee!”

Birds soared cirumbulating thee

charmed by thee

hypnotized by thee

Buhaira by pen captured thee

a relic in print passed on to aspirants

Masters and seekers stare in adoration in veneration

All creation bore witness

when angels were summoned

to bow to Adam

in him stood Ahad the only Ahmad

The Holy one; the Chosen One

Disguised in Adam’s flesh

in Spiirt You-Oh Ahad-The One

Oh Ahmad Oh Mohammed

Oh Praised One

Oh First One

Oh Awal


Buhaira found the cave of light with thee

Cave of Hira said, wait you for me!

Cave Thaur said, do not exclude me!

Sinai said, come reside in me!

Again from Sinai a calling came

a delegation to Madina

seeking protection, bescheeing thee

you swore safety

a blue print for peace

Angels descended, prophets arrived

All monks witnessed

Ali your scribe

By Mohammed the praised one

Son of Abdullah

heaven bore testimony

*Isa rejoiced

his follower would fear no more

Mustafa our saviour

summoned his community

to safeguard, protect, respect all Isawis

like their own

this vow; our honour

to break; our disgrace

falling low in heaven’s eyes’

Blood shed today

Mohammed you bleed

The cross stained in crimson

Angels lament

hearing you weep



Ahmad’s Nama

Ahmad’s promise

Ahmad’s treaty

Ahmad’s covenant

Ahmad’s promise we affirm

To Sinai disheveled

To Sinai for Moses

To Sinai for Jesus

A love triangle




Mahdi’s spirit in Sinai

everpresent is he

watchful is he

calls he his men

to reaffirm the pledge of his grandfather

Ahdname Achtiname

his fellow men pledge and call upon in spirit

paying homage to Tur

where man and ash fused as one

Where fana  bore witness

to the Light of HU

refracting through Ahmad

Ahad veiled by meem

Meem striking  Moses

Catherine’s spirit  beckons Mohammed

Seekers pledge to affirm the treaty

The pledge to restore

that we lost;

the Abrahamic knot

the lessons you taught

Men set forth

armies of light

flock to pledge to Ahdname



Oh Spirit of the Wine

Oh Spirit of Divine

In Sinai your presence

In Sinai your breath

In Sinai your shade

In Sinai your light

In Sinai your promise

In Sinai your vow

We pay homage to thee

Grace us with Grace


Honor to Ali

Honor to your household

Honor to your loyal companions

Honor to the Sultans

Honor to those who upheld

Honor to those who preserved

the truth and sanctity in thy words

Honor to every witness

Honor to Sinai, the city of peace

By the fig, the olive and the Mount of Sinai


My heart bears witness to AhdName-AchtiName!


I swoon to the Ney of AhdName

My eyes shed tears to Ahdname

I whirl to the dance of AhdName

Pilgrims sojourn to AhdName

By the hand which wrote AhdName

By the scribe who recorded AhdName

I dance to the drum of AhdName

I sway to the tune of AhdName

I chant to the song of AhdName

I drum to the beat of AhdName

I sip to the wine of AhdName

By the eyes who witnessed AhdName

By the tongue which uttered AhdName

By the Angels who descend on AhdName

By the heart engraved with AhdName

By the light of Mohammed AhdName

By the one who upheld AhdName

We bear witness to AhdName

By the Ishq of Mohammed AhdName

By the love of Ali AhdName

By the sir of Jesus AhdName

By the Jalal of Moses AhdName

By the faith of Nowfal AhdName

By the love of Khadija AhdName

By the loyalty of Hayder AhdName

By the Pledge of Siddique AhdName

By the seal of Prophethood AhdName

By the covenant of Quresh AhdName

By the truce of Hudaibiya AhdName

By the Convenants to the Christians AhdName

By the Sultan’s Tughra AhdName

By the burning bush AhdName

By the valley of Tuwa AhdName

By the well of Moses AhdName

By the sanctity of Tur AhdNama

By the mention of Sinai AhdName

By the dove and spider AhdName

By the wings of the eagle Ahdname

For the sake of Mary AhdNama

By the Lord of All Worlds AhdName

We conclude with love for AhdName
