Imam Abu al-Hasan 'Ali ibn Husayn Zayn al-‘Abidin's (q.s.) Lament

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Abu al-Hasan ‘Ali ibn Husayn Zayn al-‘Abidin (q.s.), when he was harassed by the Umayyad tyrants, lamented:

“O Winds!  If someday you pass by the sacred land, then pass my salaam
Before the Rawdhah al-Aqdas where the most exalted Nabi rests.
The sadness of separation from Madina feels,
Like a sword stuck deep into my liver.
How fortunate are the people of that city in,
Which is the Exalted and Beloved Prophet.
O Rahmatan lil ‘Aalamin!  Assist Zayn al-‘Abidin,
Who is standing alone and in difficulty amongst the tyrants.”
