A Martyr in Allah’s Way

A martyr in Allah’s way

Wishing to fly away

Went through Allah’s enemies

Like flying in burning trees.

God’s angels whispering and cuddling

Sank in his heart saying time’s going.

His face shining and brightening

And all the devils within him burning

Remembering all his memories

Forgetting all his behindings.

He softened his bleeding heart

And saw the coming shining dart.

He gave his hands to the angels

Reaching their wings full of tangles.

Higher and higher , leaving everything muddy

He flew to his heart-owner with a hobby.

To live and love in the Heaven above

And have nothing more but Allah’s love.

His bleeding spirit watering the Earth

Is the mother to another outstanding birth.
