O to the one that lies, and tries

SHAFAQNA  – Glory be to Allah, the Possessor of the Ancient and Magnificent Kingdom – Fatima Zahra [as]

O to the one that lies, and tries,
to garner and gather
friendly support,
in armies
of staggered loyalties –
lie about me, lie in my name, discredit me, and
write me poems of enchantment, and
murder my darlings,
through a thick veil
of smoke –
make light of it all and lie, though
you have oppressed all the Musaddiqeen
by your rough speech,
know that the Armies of Allah
are not
within your treacherous reach, for
GOD IS MY AVENGER, MY JUSTICE AND MY SPEECH
HE IS THE ARRANGER OF MY AFFAIRS AND THE HEART OF MY SOUL
I TORE EVERYTHING FROM MY BREAST UPON COMING TO HIM
AND HE PROCEEDED TO SNATCH EVERYTHING
THAT TRIED TO TAKE ROOT
WHEN I CAME CLOSER
I HELD ON BY A THREAD
TO THE FIRMEST HANDHOLD
AND NOW I STAND BY HIS STRENGTH
AND BY THE TRUTH AND JUSTICE THAT RUNS
IN MY VEINS
LIKE A GAZELLE IN PURSUIT
OR A LION THAT POUNCES
DON’T WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT LIFE, OR
FOR YOUR APPOINTED END
YOU WILL BE JUDGED IN THIS LIFE, AND
AS A SABIREEN TAKEN TO AN EASY PARADISE –
I WILL WAIT FOR THE HAMMER OF JUSTICE TO COME DOWN
AND FOR KARMA TO CROSS YOUR PATH….
