Stanza 98


The prayer that has begun fills every ear
That listens to the glorious takbir
Proclaimed by Qasim's father stridently.
The other worshipers accompany
The recitation in a softer tone
And quietly they offer what is known
That God desires of every follower.
The praises echoed by each whisperer
Contribute to the solemn attitude
That underscores the sorrow the subdued
Participants are feeling as they pray.
The five takbirs that all the people say
Give glory unto God as is required,
Creating in the people an inspired
Sensation which allows them to believe,
If God is willing, that they will achieve
Revenge against the horrible marines
And blast their enemies to smithereens.
Thus all the people place their confidence
In The Most Merciful's omnipotence.
