To Identify a True Believer,

“Bawaji Saheb ye’ Africa si wada’ thati waqt aa’misl
farmayu’thu, e’j misl aa’j me’ kahu chu:

Ma’thu nichu’ kari ne’, a’nkh masi a’nsu nikali ne’,
ikhlaas si mane’ yaad karse’, t’o me’ ehni’ madad ma’
aa’wis. Jo’ em na’ karu, t’o me’ Imam uz zaman nu Dai
nahi’.”

Kale’maat Maulanal Mina’am (RA) fi’ majlis al’wada’.

T rust in your heart,
be faithful
to Aqa Maula,
O ur belief from
the start,
is for the
final deen
of Allah Ta’ala.

I nside the
believer’s
chest,
is the nuqto’thun
noor,
D istinguishing him
from
the rest,
protecting him
from iblis’s lure,
E ntrenched are
dissidents,
whose hearts
are filled
with darkness,
N ot seeing
our Maula’s
benevolence,
they aspire to
make do
in hopelessness,
T rying to
democratically
bring freedom,
to an apparently
educated
minority,
I nciting hatred
rather
than forming
a schism,
their aspirations
stem from vanity,
F or they believe
that democracy
is perfect,
and the leaders
thus elected
are so too,
Y et they
defy Allah Ta’ala’s
reason to select,
those upon
whome He
sees hope
and virtue.

A nd the ways
of the world,
immediately
seemed
unfurled,

T he ashram
of the dissident
camp,
is but an ersatz
struggle,
R educing the light
of the lamp,
they desire
to spread
a democratic evil,
U ndoubtedly sold
to their members,
by way
of transparent
equivocations,
E nticing the
youngsters
and sinners,
showing them
irrefutable
derivations.

B ut what system
is perfect?
oh believer
i ask you
in earnest,
E ach of us
does know
how to select,
what is poor,
good
and
the best,
L eaving refrain
for when
things are poor,
and motivation
when
times are good,
I ndeed the
true believer,
can survive
in any
neighbourhood,
E nduring the
passing,
of wrong doers
wanting
to be right,
V igilant of their
plotting,
in a world which
condones
their ‘plight’,
E ach believer
in their chest,
has a drop of noor
ensuring
his freedom, ,
R ufescent at dusk
are the skies
of the west,
for this noor exists
because
of a matchless
martyrdom.
