I’m land beloved by children of Ibraham.
I’m considered blessed and promised.
Best of the people, both rich and piteous
– Have set foot on me!?
I’ve seen battles, losses and victory
I remain silent in face of injustice and celebrations.
I remember the day when,
Yusuff saw his destiny in a dream and his father-
Yacoob, patiently bore Yusuff’s separation;
Moosa urged free slaves to fight for me – they denied!
Dawood turned face of battle with a slingshot;
Sulaiman, ruler of the best kingdom built magnificent temple!
Zakaria remained speechless as a foresight of Yahya
Maryam, the virgin was decreed with Isa;
Isa cured blind and leper, gave life to death with permission of Allah;
Muhammed prayed here – leading the prophets.
May Peace be upon them all.
I had been –Land of olives;
Direction of prayer – prior to command of change(to Mecca).
I had seen children of Ibrahim pray in harmony;
I still hold holly sanctuaries of Jews Christians and Muslims;
And I see “piteous” lust over me. Their greed –
has caused rivers of blood to flow around me.
I remain calm amidst screams of pain
As I know The Most Merciful Lord will not let injustice prevail for long.
I’m Jerusalem, al-quds, al-aqsa.
