Nation of Ghifar.
Our celebrated hero,
May Allah t’ala bless him
Once could not stand that people be free Through the declaration of faith
And so he asked the Messenger
And thrice he (saw) replied
With the last a humorous chide.
And when the blessed one left us,
And Abu Dharr (ra) sought to impose
His understanding of charity and frugality
The companions had him banished
And so befell the words of the Messenger
That he would be left alone.
For the obligations were set
A trust to be kept
So that we might be free
At not slaves to a false religiosity.
How my heart bleeds
That these people have stolen
A religion made pure
Flowing as a river
They damned with their fiqh
And every now and then cull silver fish.
So that the people believe
That orthodoxy is conservatism
It never was
For this revolutionary religion
Will burst their every bank.
