Persian Qasida: Amir Al Momenin, by Rukhsana Karmali

Rukhsana Karmali is starting the New Year with a beautiful rendition of a Qasida in praise of Imam Ali (peace be upon him and his family). As we approach the Diamond Jubilee of Mawlana Hazar Imam, she will be releasing qasidas, garbis and Sufi tracks. Listen and enjoy!

Oh Amir al Mumineen (king of believers), 
Oh the the king of men, 
make our unhappy hearts happy, Mowla Ali Jan (dear master Ali)
One night there was a gathering on remembrance of Ali, 
and I heard a wise man said: If you have hell fire under your skin, you will not be burnt if you love Ali
But If Ali`s love is not in your heart, you will burn even if you have thousands of skin
Ali is the head and master of Ahl Al yaqin (people of assurance and belief)
He is the successor and guider of the clear religion (Islam)
If you are in the judgment day`s fire by God`s wrath,
Acceptance of his governance in heart is fort of immunity
If Ali`s hand is not God`s hand, why no other hand solves problems?
Anyone who fell in love with Ali`s way, his heart became the mirror of Ali`s face
In the judgement day, everyone will be looking at a direction, 
but my eyes and heart is directed towards Ali
From the master Ali, I have in my head and mind the shadow and security of love
Ali, that master and essence of love, He has given us strength of his love as the lion of love.
