In Praise of the Imams (A.S.)

    In Praise of the Imams (A.S.)
    My heart is fine and bright with the love of Haydar
    Next to Haydar, al-Hasan is our Guide and Leader.
    The dust beneath the Shoes of al-Husayn
    is the eyeliner (surmah) for my eyes.
    al-Abideen, the ornament of all devotees
    is like a crown on my head.
    al-Baqir is the light of both my eyes.
    The religion of Ja'far is true and the path of Musa is right.
    O, loyal, ones: listen to me praising the King of Kings (al-Ridha)
    who is buried in Khurasan.
    A particle from the dust of his tomb is the cure of all pains
    Leader of men of faith is al-Taqi, O dear Muslims
    If you love al-Naqi in preference to all other people,
    you have done the thing which is proper and right.
    al-Askari is the light of the eyes of both Adam and the world.
    Where can be found, in the world,
    such a chief in command like al-Mahdi?
    Essence of the Holy Quran
    The Eternal Light
    Ayatullah Agha Haji Mirza Mahdi Pooya
