Alone I Desired to Gaze at Muhammad

Enamored by the light of Muhammad

I broke the law of Joseph

For every literal eye

I am sin, sinner and dammed

I swear for by the Lord of Love

I am Ashiqa and Mashooqa

No sin but to close that door

Alone I desired to gaze at Muhammad

The chosen one, The only one

Torn shirt,

I desired to glance at the mark of Nubuwwah

Sin became the deed

My story inked eternally in  sacred books

Rumors abound me

whispers of shame

the curse of Zulaikha

on every women who strayed

For love I volunteered


to be remembered

Eternally as a lover

I fill the pages of every black book

I a lover, unknown to all

except to those who drink this  wine
