Poem of Maula Ali AlaihisSalam on grave of Syedah Fatima Zahara AlahisSalam

1- How strange! I say Salam to the beloved’s grave But the beloved does not answer the Salam I gave

2- Oh my beloved! Why is it that you fail to respond? After our separation, have you forgotten our bond?

3- How can I answer you? The beloved replies For wedged between stones and sand am I

4- The sand swallowed my merits, so you I forgot From my family and friends I was hidden and blocked

5- Upon you be my Salam, my peace Our friendship is now finished and ceased

_
