Name: Sakina Sajjad Vakil

From: UAE 

 

Lady Zahra (as):
A lonely princess A distressed heart
A broken star A darkened sun
This is what, to Lady Zahra
The Prophet’s Ummat… had done

The one who from within her Mom
Used to elegantly speak
The one for whom her father
Used to stand and give up his seat

The one for whom a star
Descended to choose her suitor
The one who was for her sons
The most ever learned tutor

The one who supported her husband
Through times both thick and thin
The one who was the centre of recognition
For her entire kin

The one who was Umm al Aimmah
A mother to eleven of the Imams
Not only that as Umm e Abeeha also mothered
The last Prophet in her arms

A pillar for her husband
A relaxing shade for her dad
A role model for her Ma’asoom children
She was a women who’s every move made Allah really glad

An Aabida so eagerly devoted
To serve her Beloved Master
That feeling pity on her swollen legs
The Almighty would make nights pass faster

The one who’s husband was so sakhi
That he once gave zakat even while in ruku
The one who on her wedding night gave her new dress away
Proving totally that she and Ali were kufu

The one for whom Hijab was so important
That she asked to be buried in the dead of the night
But for the Imam she ignored her feelings
And in the darbaar spoke for his right

Her life may have been really short
And filled with a lot of pain
But for us it’s filled with inspirations
And in every incident is a lesson to gain

And though we, her Shias, love her
It’s sad and a real shame
That her people never understood her greatness
And quickly put out her life’s flame

A lonely princess A distressed heart
A broken star A darkened sun
This is what, to Lady Zahra
The Prophet’s Ummat… had done
