>It’s Friday

>(a dedication to the victims of Friday prayer bombing in Najaf, in which Ayatollah Hakim was martyred in 2003)

Dark cloud: dripping blood instead of rain,
It’s Friday.

Laughing loud: devil in mud celebrating pain,
It’s Friday.

A red shroud: soaked in blood not in vain,
It’s Friday.

A mother proud: tears in flood hopes slain,
It’s Friday.

Sacred shrine: believers’ sight
Holy ground: believers’ heart
Divine dome: Believers’ hope
Blessed rainfall: believers’ blood

It’s Friday.

Juma, Khutba, Imam, Unity, Blast, Blood, Shaheed,
Seventy Five
In Heaven.
It’s Friday!
