Z: Ziyarah – Alphabet of Friendship

In the hush of night, my heart yearns and turns,
Ziyarah deep, to Imam Mahdi, it earns.
“Part your lips,” a whispered counsel nears,
Sincere heart-to-heart, all doubts it clears.
“I bear witness, my words reach your ear,”
Proof of Allah, witness my tear.
Between Allah and me, sins take their toll,
To you, O Imam, my plea takes its toll.
In shadows of guilt, where no solace is found,
Your intercession, my soul’s sacred ground.
O Mahdi, guide this wayward heart,
From the flames, grant a fresh start.

Imam Ali al-Hadi (peace be upon him):
“If you have a need (from your Imam who is far away from you), move your lips (from wherever you are), for the answer will come to you.”

فإِنْ كَانَتْ لَكَ حَاجَةٌ فَحَرِّكْ شَفَتَيْكَ، فَإِنَّ اَلْجَوَابَ يَأْتِيكَ
