Plea/Cry from the Cradle

E-mail Print PDF

O my son, neither forsake nor forget me
For my hour of need has dawned
Though promises of riches may dazzle you
Many a peril it has spawned

O my son, you spent your life/time championing my cause

Decreed unshackled by Allah’s laws
Richest rewards will reach you soon
Verily you are of the Saabiqoon


O my son, abode of the righteous and the Auliya
Your noble roots are centuries deep
Hallowed by countless footprints to heaven
Their disappearance will surely make you weep

O my soul, unique blend of the East and the West

Of culture and cuisine, of melody and tranquility

Ten minarets in close conversation
Only a fool will deny it for posterity

O my son of my son, Bo-Kaap is but a fading memory
For Uppertown is the real estate paradise
Your kin has departed, minarets replaced
Do you care where your direction lies
