My Sayyid Shihab Deserves the Real Clap


– by Jaihoon

To provoke violence is simple
To set homes afire so easy
To take lives require no brains
To divide hearts just a breeze
To extinguish lights a mere play
To tear pages requires no sages


To preserve peace
To build homes
To sustain growth
To knit souls
To kindle light
To teach wisdom-

Such is the job that deserves the real clap
True, not everyone can match my Sayyid Shihab

In memory of Sayyid Muhammadali Shihab Thangal, the late spiritual leader of Malabar
