    Khilafat-e-Usmania ka Imam… 0110-2012

    The Ottoman Imam (1520-1566) … 0110-2012
    (Ref: Al Ahram newspaper 22nd September 1986, Egypt)

    “Ride to the distant villages and fairs
    Ride them waves or wing the airs
    Ascend the mounts or descend the stairs

    Oh, go yea my men! To the banks of Nile
    Search amid ripened empire’s pile
    Search by the Euphrates for a man of style

    stands out above the milling throng
    speaks the tongues of millions strong
    who’s soul is pure, has done no wrong

    knows his Quran and The Holy Scripts
    carefree to the tide of floes and drifts
    quickly through logic his mind sifts

    must be a master of counting games
    well versed in stars and their names
    the physical laws his wit tames

    sane sagacious and balanced of keel
    soft at heart but a man of steel
    the worldly riches flow by his heel

    Shariah his shroud and the Fiqa too
    bold and chivalrous at the art of slew
    his voice to the ears melodious dew

    hold against push and lecher’s pull
    to preach and act Islam in its full
    command great domes of our Istanbul

    go ye by steed, by leap or bound!
    such is the man, I decree be found!
    such a man, so we hold our ground!”
