Safinatul Najaat

you held her hand

walking through fire


by the light of

Taha’s progeny

you crossed the

deadly Red Sea

neither Nimrod or Pharoah

cut short your destiny

amidst the grand deluge

you boarded Noah’s Ark

Safinatul Najaat

upon it the itara

who graced you

who saved you

from your

self destructive


as David to Goliath

you emulated

the children of Israel

this internal riot

do not deny it

you forgot once again

slaying the same Fatimi chain

the progeny of Ali

you seek Solomon’s temple

without the key

neither scripture

or litany

your nightly vigil

or pilgrimage

of use

in absence of

The Hand of Fatima

Hasnain and Ali
