Yakob (Jacob)

Yakob (Jacob)

A Poem by Abdul Batin Osman Bey

Inspired by the teachings of W.D.Fard the founder of the Nation of Islam



Go back to Patmos

Undue what you have done

Pull out the spikes from the brains of the young

Allow them to live, to learn

Allow them to be free



If you do not do what I command

Then I will throw you off the mountain

I will undue what you have done


Mediterranean am I

Living father

Living son





Ever ready

The ones like me


We are the in between of your scheme

Embodiment of perfection




Why tremble so?



You never were one for truth

thank u
I don't know much about the teaching of Islam however I thought this poem to be very well done. The structure of the poem makes me think of a crown tilted on its side (not sure if that was intentional). Yakob is a liar who has to fix what he has done yes?
