A 21ST CENTURY MARTYR’S STORY ~ Dedicated To All Innocent Victims Of Friday 28th November 2014 Kano Central Mosque Bomb Blast.

Tijjani Muhammad Musa's photo.…by Poetic Tee “Here, take a sip”

He takes a bath, spiritual
And takes another, habitual
First to cleanse of sins, his soul
Then to clean dirt off his whole

Perfuming attire, scents of paradise
Head to toes, white on white, thrice
He picks his mat, beads, a soft muffler
A habit, now second nature to this feller

Another Jum’at call, mind, body he ablutes
He’s no soldier, but plans to throw salutes
Ready for an appointment he’s since kept
Everything he has, of wants nothing’s left

Think not that affluence is what is meant
Tijjani Muhammad Musa's photo.But a contented heart, life gratefully spent
Check, double check, he’s flawlessly clean
On a steel stick still, his each step will lean

Once young, then a father, now a grandpa
Preferring to walk the distance, though far
Slowly, but surely he will stroll in the street
Familiar faces, male, female, children greet

Arriving, he stands in awe of his destination
He’s come here, for over 40 years of devotion
A historic monument 400 years and counting
Each day of gathering, he comes to its planting

His position, marked by his regular presence
Consistently reciting his words with eloquence
Celebrating Him, Whom he gloriously reveres
Of all offers, this he wholeheartedly prefers

His 4 hours patience for a 10 minutes salat ritual
Tijjani Muhammad Musa's photo.Can only be based on a conviction, steep in factual
Finally it’s time for a true promise, he least expect
Standing white, inside out clean, mind in retrospect

Like any true Muslim on the right path
He often wishes for martyrdom in his heart
But age has taken him custody, stripping off hopes
Barely can he stand upright, tall but bent he copes

Before His Majestic Throne he prepares to prostrate
His purpose on earth, he reaffirms, to truly vindicate
No short-changing nor delaying, a smile that dimples
Submitting to Allah’s Will, copying the Rasool’s examples

The call is Adhan made, he stands up in front row
Legs, shoulders adjust to solidify, a single wall flow
A million minds harmonize, spirited for The Only One
Then Gates of Heaven open, a “Boom!!!” ushers Baffan.

- And others to the Ultimate of Success!!!
