“Our Love for Mawlana Hazar Imam” by Sadaf Sherbari


Everything we say,
Every adventure we dare,
Hazar Imam, only you are the reason for our courage,
Hazar Imam, only you extinguish the fire and it turns to embers.


When you surround our hearts
And only your love floats through our bodies,
When your voice touches our hearts,
Then body and soul are free of pain,
The fears and sorrow disappear at night,
As if God’s angel is guarding humankind.


O Mawla, every sin will be forgiven,
O Mawla, every second we want to live the life.
Everything we say,
Every adventure we dare,
Our courage, our hope and our dreams,
Our power, our strength and our will,
Our love, our unity and our joy,
Through you alone we have the power,
Through you alone our hearts are laughing.


You bring the stars near for us,
And we see the glimmer of angels in the distance
O you humans, close your eyes and hear what I say,
Watch it, every step I dare.


Only he, Mawlana Hazar Imam,  is the reason for my courage,
Only he, Mawlana Hazar Imam, extinguishes the fires and it turns to
    embers.
His words make flowers bloom in our hearts
And our world brightens as with the glow of a thousand candles.


Our courage, our hope and our dreams,
Our power, our strength and our will,
Our love, our unity and our joy,
Through you alone we have the power,
Through you alone our hearts are laughing.


When you surround our hearts
Only love floats through our bodies,
When your voice touches our hearts,
Then body and soul are free of pains,
The fears and sorrow disappear at night,
As if God’s angel is guarding humankind.


O Mawla every sin will be forgiven,
O Mawla, every second we want to live the life.
Everything we say,
Every adventure we dare,
Hazar Imam, only you are the reason for our courage,
Hazar Imam, only you extinguish the fire and it turns to embers.
