I can See (Zainab at Tille Zainabiya)
Efforts: Isha Haider Hasnain



You Look at Me…
Bibi Zainab at Till-e- Zainabiya

You look at me with a raised hand,
But I can see Ghadeer-e-Khum and my father”s hand
The tears in your eyes can be seen from where I stand,
But I can see my mother wiping them with both her hands

1)Your eyes tell me, to bear this pain, to see you bleed, to dare not weep,
And to hold my stand,
But I can feel my heart tearing, at your every glance
You look at me with a raised hand,
But I can see Ghadeer-e-Khum and my father”s hand x 2
The tears in your eyes can be seen from where I stand,
But I can see my mother wiping them with both her hands X 2

2)When arrows strike, when spears are thrown, on your body-pelted with stones,
That-makes you crash on the sand,
Then I can see RasoolAllah-slap-his-face with his palms.
You look at me with a raised hand,
But I can see Ghadeer-e-Khum and my father”s hand x 2
The tears in your eyes can be seen from where I stand,
But I can see my mother wiping them with both her hands X 2

3)When you crawl in pain, and clench your heart, how should I start
To describe your plight,
All I can see is mother screaming and throwing sand.
You look at me with a raised hand,
But I can see Ghadeer-e-Khum and my father”s hand x 2
The tears in your eyes can be seen from where I stand,
But I can see my mother wiping them with both her hands X 2

4)This pain won”t make, me weak or frail, this pain can”t break, I will tolerate
This is a promise I make,
O brother, all I see is Allah”s beauty in this pain
You look at me with a raised hand,
But I can see Ghadeer-e-Khum and my father”s hand x 2
The tears in your eyes can be seen from where I stand,
But I can see my mother wiping them with both her hands X 2
