La Ilaha Illalah!

By Novid Shaid, 2011

(based on the famous Arabic qasida)

.

Sing it with sincere ardour!

Drink it in with cheer and fervour!

The authentic formula!

La ilaha illalah!

.

Hear it echo in your dreams!

Wear this credo with esteem!

It’s the manifesto supreme!

La ilaha illalah!

.

Through it strengthens certainty!

View it with sincerity!

Imbue it, oh humanity!

La ilaha illalah!

.

In the great glory of dawn

When dusk’s canopy is drawn

Read it happily, feel reborn!

La ilaha illalah!

.

Hidden in it lies relief,

Medicine for spiritual diseases,

It’s the divine remedy!

La ilaha illalah!

.

Light of Unity appear

In those ones who preservere

Reciting with strong candour!

La ilaha illalah!

.

Peace and blessings on the one,

Prayers upon the noble one,

Who brought us the Kalima!

La ilaha illalah!

  1. MashaAllah…you know what these poems remind me of? Sheikh Rumi r.a. You should try writing one or 2 poems in his style 🙂
