    We live in confusing times – times that we struggle to understand and that often don’t understand us. How, then, should we as believers respond to its challenges? What are the precedents set by the luminaries of the past? And how can a longer term understanding of the history and evolution of Bani Adam help us?

    In a talk given in 2019, Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad reflects on a strategy for the correct response of the believers.

    Karbala Lament: The Field of Misfortune – Abdal Hakim Murad

    Karbala Lament: The Field of Misfortune – Abdal Hakim Murad

    10 Muharram 1442
    Karbala Lament: "The Field of Misfortune" from the Rawdat al-Shuhada’
    Sung by Abdal Hakim Murad, Mohsin Badat and Kenneth Cook

    ---
    Rawdat al-Shuhada’ picks up the story where the Burdah leaves off and takes us through to Karbala.
    Written by Imam Husayn Vaiz Kashifi (d.1505), it recalls the sufferings of the Ahl ul-Bayt and the reward that lies in wait for them in the next world.

    Originally written in Farsi, this devotional hymn has been overlooked until recently in the English speaking world but was once sung in awe amongst the peoples within the Ottoman and Mughal empires.

    The Field of Misfortune

    Upon the field of misfortune
    All my people lie
    Their ruddy wounds all untended
    Open to the sky.

    The devil’s blade has been fashioned
    In the blaze of hate,
    Its poison spirit impassioned
    In its fiery fate.

    The edge knows thirst that is rabid
    Questing here its point
    To holy flesh for its scabbard
    Blood it shall anoint.

    The rainless airs of the valley
    Hear my lonely cry
    The widowed daughters of Ali
    Teach the dust to sigh.

    Behold Abbas, hero regal
    Hear Sakina’s thirst
    Father of grace of the eagle
    place that maiden first.

    To see the blood of my brothers
    dye the sorry sands
    to hear the keening of mothers
    cheeks clenched in their hands.

    So teach the ways of fair patience
    To the weak and wronged.
    Strengthen with hope and forbearance
    wretchedness prolonged.

    Ya rahmanu
    Ya hannanu
    Ya rahimana

    Anta ghafarul masawi
    tub ‘alayna.
