Once again we offer you heartfelt condolences, and here is a tribute to Imam Musa Kazem in verse by Iran's English language poet, Dr. Hassan Najafi:
"You, to your care so much we owe
We breathe in your love - to tell you so.
You are prompt at every call
You pray, you feel, you answer all.
You are the Seventh Imam,
Seventh ray of Faith’s warm.
Miracle is your endurance
Unique is your tolerance.
Haroon Rasheed imprisoned you
Forgetful of fact, can’t confine a dew.
You entered a cell blessing there hailed
Haroon in his mission failed.
Every tyranny you suffered
But your stand never differed.
Beyond tolerance you underwent
But never provoked your resentment,
Every cell you entered, you God worshipped.
Sweet turned to you every hardship.
You became to Boons a Door,
Whoever calls you your answer is sure.
The world still calls you
You are every one's aspired rescue.
However they belittled you
The greatness hovered on you.
Our children in your love are born
In the farm of faith your love is the corn.
If not your love sore goes the fruit
And goes wrong a traveler from the route.
In a jungle guide is a dire need
Likewise in your love we proceed.
Tell the grave to be tender to me
I’m the Imam’s friend and to me he.
