though Umar,

at simplest way and no sore.

you were sent into prison
without any good reason
but you remain calm and strong
with good action and no wrong.

you met with a huge army
very fierce and stormy
but you won finally
for the daring act and steady.

The soul of man, the man of God
you are the hero of this world
become specimen of human perfection
for our guidance and salvation.

O Allah,
they are the heroes,
and we are not the losers.
