An Ashiq’s Game: Maqtal

An Aashiq’s game

the battlefield a stain

your followers, an enviable attain

Imam Zain in pain

Zainab laments pure rain

Asghar Ali in disdain

Sakina trembles ain ain?

Abbas’ body blain

service his only aim!

Ya Hussain!

Ya Hussain!

Shimmer enters hell’s lane

arrows drip dum Hussain

Shah Hast Hussain!

eyes on Zuljana’s mane

your eyes downcast, plain

perfumed corpse in Ishq’s chain

cosmos numb to explain.

.Silence I ascertain.


skies fail to contain

heaven’s wails fail to retain

beyond time, your name again

in every grain

every sip your name!

a lover‘s terrain

a holy campaign

truth and justice twain

from injustice and tyranny we abstain

say not tragedy! are you insane?

no loss only gain

their claims,

how inhumane

with you we remain

our Mawla Hussain

all else mundane

our heart’s breathe:

Ya Hussain

Ya Hussain
