The Garden of Date

The sun rose 14 centuries ago
He prepared a garden of dates
The flowers abound a garden of eden
The date palm was watered
Protecting all in the garden

The day of reckoning at past noon
The tenth of moharram
The date palm he rests his shoulder
See the injustice on me
For those in the garden saw the rivers of blood
The date looked on in despair
His caretaker burdened the injustice
A dusk of one age as the dawn of a long night

A lonely palm with a harvest of dates
The garden was protected with the blood of the tenth day
For what time will pass under the shimmer of the moon

The garden of date flourishes
Every harvest remembering the
Sacrifice of the tenth day.
He awaits the sun to rise again
He shall reap the rewards of
Fourteen hundred years,
I ask that I be in this garden indeed.
Come on come on...come under the shadow of garden of date.

A Journey of Benefit

For my Master arrives today
A sad mourne of the first ten
Days of remeberance for The King
Travels He returned with Treasures
Abound from the plains of Kerbala

Pearls of wisdom he will gift
Many will have their hands ready
Grab the jewels as they fall
For with the wealth is a pardon
For many sins I have committed

Tears roll on the servants cheek
As The Master says O'Brother you
Are washed of all No worries on the
Sea of troubles just hold My Hand
For our Journey is together grab it firm

Travel brings us closer to home
The shores He has seen and I have forgotten
For the captain calls me His Brother
When I am fulfilled as his servant

The ten days will be to capture
The jewels of wisdom
A wealth to pay for our journey home.
Gather the pearls as they are said
A Journey of Benefit He says..

A New Year Today

For 1431 has arrived!
We travel forward everyday
Today is no less or more than yesterday
But yesterday was 1430 and today 1431

The beginning we mourn, a child born
In ten days a sacrifice for eternity
For the Commander will call upon all
Remember the blood shed on the desert
Sunrise to sunset on the tenth we shall recall

The images of the fields of Kerbala
A distant past tale brought to life
The final time of Asr He will prostrate
To demonstrate and vividly remind the story is today
Thousands in Marol shall see it LIVE
For the King will be there in Spirit

Million plus will join minute by minute
1431 the day of the tenth - Ashura indeed
We await the day where we shall be at his knees
Begging for the blessings that all shall receive
Forget not that he blesses all
But being there it would be indeed best for my feeble mind

A solace on the image on the screen
He will remember me I know
And in that I ask for forgiveness
The tenth on a New year today
I shall await with great fervor.

1431H - Welcome the Nine

The last few days and hours.
The ten days of mourn - a celebration indeed
This year adds to nine - one short of ten
A hail from Marol to relays of the world
A son in the West replies again

A journey for those lucky
Emirates in the air Eastbound
Celebrate the nine, we await the tenth
This year is nines! 99 years in the year of nine
We await his call for Our Eid on the tenth
One Four Three and One - nine again
Next year Tens! 1432H One Four Three Two - 10
100 years it shall be - we celebrate again.

A glorious two years it will start - Twelve months of the next
Wait for the new moon wait for the celebration.
Indeed we await the glorious nine and anticipate the ten
