Honorable judges, respected elders, and fellow writers may the Imam of our time accept our grief. On this fateful night, we commemorate the martyrdom of Hazrat Qasim, & it is in his honor that I base this poem on one of his sayings. “Death For Islam Will Be Sweeter For Me Than Honey” The night of Ashura is a line A line between action and contemplation Contemplation and reflection Hurr was one of both For on that night he did all the reflection, and came to a conclusion A conclusion that required him to reach not for the best but better than that To reach not for honey but something sweeter An Imam, a leader For when he looked across the sand towards the Euphrates He felt a thirst A thirst that could not quenched with all the water in the world For it was a thirst to be free Free of the battle within himself A battle between the right path and his desires he chose the right path

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
