Lamenting the Fall of Baghdad

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Taqi’ ad-Din Isma’il ibn Abi al-Yusr adz-Dzahabi (r.a.) wrote a poem, about the fall of Baghdad to the Mongols, in 1258 CE.

“God Knows that the people,
Were made negligent,
By what they enjoyed of Divine Favours,
Wherein was abundance,
So, they grew heedless of the Wrath of the Almighty,
Since they became negligent,
And there came upon them a mighty one,
Of the hosts of infidelity.”
