    #Alahazrat dedicates five couplets in Qasidah Salamiyyah to Mawla Ali رضي الله عنه:

    ---
    Murtaza sheyr e haqq ashja'ul ashja'īń
    Sāqi e shīr o sharbat pe lakhon salam

    The chosen one, lion of Allah, bravest of the brave;
    Endless salutations upon the pourer of milk and drink

    Note, homonyms: sheyr and shīr.

    ---
    Asl nasl e safā waj'he wasl e khudā
    Bāb e fasl e wilāyat pe lakhon salam

    Origin of pure lineage, means of Divine gnosis;
    Endless salutations upon the door to sainthood

    ---
    Awwalīń dāfaýe ahl e rifz o khurūj
    Chārmi rukn e millat pe lakhon salam

    First to eliminate the people of rejection and rebellion;
    Endless salutations upon the fourth pillar of the nation

    Mawla Ali was the first to wage war against Rafidis and Kharijis. Rafidi means a rejector and Khariji means a rebel.

    Sheyr e shamshīr zan shāh e khaybar shikan
    Partaw e dast e qudrat pe lakhon salam

    Sword brandishing lion, destroyer of Khaybar;
    Endless salutations upon the manifestation of Divine Power

    ---
    Māhi e rifz o tafzīl o nasb o khurūj
    Hāmi e dīn o sunnat pe lakhon salam

    The vanquisher of rifd, tafdil, nasb and khuruj;
    Endless salutations on the helper of Islam and the sunnah

    Mawla Ali banished the innovations of rifd (enmity of sahabah), tafdil (believing other than Abu Bakr and Umar to be superior), nasb (enmity of Ahl al-Bayt) and khuruj (enmity of Ahl al-Bayt).

    Note, wordplay of Māhi and Hāmi.
