From Ahmed Nibal Zaghloul

The Beys of the Beloved

O Prophet of Islam,

I wish I had a clan as irreplaceable as your compan-ians

You had a unique group of Beys
Who we also try to imitate in their ways.
Abu Bakr was your best friend until the end
Omar was a great leader and defender
Uthman Ibn Affan, the trusted and shy one,
Who still was able to have fun
Ali, the decision maker,
Was the best of care-takers
To the grandsons of the beloved,
Hasan and Hussain

O Prophet, how I wish we could have seen.
