Sayyiduna Ameer Muawiyah رضى الله عنه – Poem


Dedicated to our beloved uncle of this ummah, Sayyadina Ameer Muaawiyah رضى الله عنه

O my beloved uncle!!!
O the brother of my beloved mother Ummi Habeebah رضى الله عنها!!!
O the brother of the wife of my beloved Nabi صلى الله عليه و سلم!!!

Loosing control over my eyes as they begin to tear,
Having read such filth if listened to surely would result in me loosing my ability to hear,
Thinking to myself What!!!! Standing in front of the Rabb of the universe do they not fear.

Forgive me for today my sight set upon such words, penned by a safeeh which shattered my heart.
I turned to my Rabb and cried. O my beloved Allah!!! What Has happened to humanity!!! That they have stooped so low.

Thinking to myself Ya Allah!!! What has caused a person to hurl and throw,
Such vile accusations against a man whose pen, with the words of Wahi (Al Quraan) used to flow ???

I thought of replying him by writing something about you. So I sat pen in hand thinking to myself what do I write ??? I mean WOW!!! What a man!!! Where do I start ???

O my beloved Uncle!!!
What part of your life could I possibly highlight???
When even every part of it shines so bright!!!

After all you graduated from an esteemed institute, the classroom of which was non other than Masjidun Nabawi صلى الله عليه و سلم.
Ah!!! what an honour!!! You drank directly from Miskhkaat e Nabawi (niche of nubuwah).
Allah the Almighty in the Quraan e Kareem published your results – openly declaring that with you and your contemporaries he is most definitely happy,
Promising you’ll forgiveness and clearly stating that each one of you is a Jannati.

Oh! What can I possibly say about you when my Nabi صلى الله عليه و سلم said it all when he said:
اللهم اجعله هاديا مهديا و اهدى به

“O Allah guide him (Muaawiyah). Make him guided. And guide others through him.”

O my beloved Uncle!!!
How vile are the words against you,
That only the ignorant spew,
If only they knew,
Evil indeed is their point of view,
Their words hold no weight as my beloved Nabi صلى الله عليه و سلم had full confidence in you.

O my beloved Uncle!!!
If only they knew, hollow are their claims and hate speech,
As with regard to you did not my beloved Nabi صلى الله عليه و سلم from his Rabb beseech.

اللهم علم معاوية الكتاب ة الحساب و قه العذاب
O Allah teach Muaawiyah the true meaning of the book (Al Quraan) as well as Math (Inheritance) and save him from the punishment (jahannam).

O my beloved Uncle!!!
Pitiful indeed is the plight,
Of those who lift their pens and against you they write, Whilst having sold their Imaan in lieu of a few meager Rands,
Fully aware of the fact that unto my beloved Allah did my beloved Nabi صلى الله عليه و سلم raise his hands,
“O Allah!!! Grant Muaawiyah leadership of the lands.”

O my beloved Uncle!!!
Baseless are the accusations (Liar, Fabricator, Usurper, Idolator ect.) with which you have been branded,
Those laying these accusations into the snares of shaytaan they have definitely landed.
Indeed defaming you is nothing but his plot,
But free from these accusations are you as from the lips of my Nabi صلى الله عليه و سلم nothing but praise fell into your lot.
As he proclaimed to his beloved Sahaba رضى الله عنهم earnestly,
“Consult Muaawiyah in your affairs as he is reliable and trustworthy.”

O my beloved Uncle!!!
What more can I say in your favour,
Oh!! A fearless commander like you, History is yet to give birth to someone braver.
Oh! The amazing feats you displayed in battle,
Your zeal, courage and ferver left the enemy in a dazzle.

Oh! If only they knew what the atmosphere was like on that night,
The hearts of your army with the remembrance of the almighty being alight.
In the history of Islam it was first naval fleet,
Heading towards Constantinople full speed,
Weapons out eagerly waiting for the enemies heads to meet.
Hoisting the flag of Islaam high thus setting out to become deserving and claim,
The dua my beloved Nabi صلى الله عليه و سلم made after waking from a dream he had in the house of Ummi Sulaim:
اول جيش من امتي يغزون البحر مغفور لهم

“The first Naval army that sets out from my Ummah. Forgiveness for them through and through.”

O my beloved Uncle!!!
If only they know,
Of the words of my beloved Nabi صلى الله عليه و سلم which caused a smile on your face to grow.
When you were sitting next to your beloved sister Ummul Mumineen Ummi Habeebah and my beloved Nabi صلى الله عليه و سلم turned to her and enquired
Do you love your brother ? Of course he is my brother she replied.
My beloved Nabi صلى الله عليه و سلم then said:

ان الله و رسوله يحبان معاوية
“Most definitely Allah and his Rasool صلى الله عليه و سلم love Muaawiyah”

How apt is the saying of a poet,
و اذا اتتك مذمتي من ناقص
فهي شهادة لي باني كامل

O you wretched one!!!
In this world against the brother in law of my beloved Nabi صلى الله عليه و سلم you spew your hate,
When you approach the pond of kawthar thirsty searching to drink from the hands of my Beloved Nabi صلى الله عليه و سلم what will be your fate ???
You were aware, time and time again you were told,
The words of my beloved Nabi صلى الله عليه و سلم: when it comes to my Sahaba don’t swear, raise your voice or be bold,
For the reward of their Mudd nay half of it you would never reach even if in charity you spent mountains of gold.

Ya Aduwa Allaahi Wa Aduwwa Rasoolih!!!
Ya Shia, Ya HizbatusShaytaani Wa Shiatut Dajjal !!!
Know that we will always stand tall.
Know that we the nieces and nephews of the Sahaba,
The children of the Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaah,
United, in refuting you we all will never hold back our life, pen or hand,
Until Allah the All Mighty deals with you and despatches you off to your mother land. (و امهم الهاوية).

Nephew of the Sahaba and son of the Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaah.
