To the Rope of Imamat, we must remember to hold strong,
With this Rope as our guide, we will never go wrong.
From our spiritual responsibilities, we must never go astray,
The balance between Din and Duniya we should uphold everyday.
We love our Hazar Imam and in our hearts he is always near,
How fortunate we are to be witness of this Golden Jubilee year!
Magnificent are the works of our Imam and to him we must show
That with our time and knowledge the further we will be able to go.
We live in a world where we sometimes forget how fortunate we really are,
And even the smallest of contributions can help people go so far.
Our Mawla, he guides, he leads the way and to us he always says,
“Remember your prayers and take your tasbih any time during the day.”
In this year some of us may see that it’s time to make a new start,
But in doing so we must show that our allegiance is from the heart.
When it’s time for the Day of Judgment, there’s something we all know,
Physically we will cease to exist and to Him our spirit we must bestow.
Mawlana Hazar Imam has often reminded us of our key role:
“In the practice of your faith, you should seek to enlighten your soul.”
