We Ismailis believe in concept of a living guide

We Ismailis believe in concept of a living guide

We Ismailis believe in concept of a living guide
This is our inborn faith; for us it is our might
As a guide emphasizes on living an ethical life
Thinks; betterment of entire humanity with insight

Being born guide; takes over after seeing Will at sight
He being the interpreter of faith; guide us where is light!
Being final authority; he himself decides what is right
when are in an ugly situation; say his decision is right

Has proven track record not once but always he's right
To understand him; need to have firm belief with insight
If dwell in buts and ifs; not understand his divine might
Follow him with clean heart; do what he says; it's wise

Just look at him; he travels around the globe them to guide
He takes all decision by himself; it is his manifest to guide
In which country; and in which area to invests; he decides
Invests in such areas; no one dare to do so; what an insight

This is our level of faith; and conviction in him with all pride
Being alone; he does what he can do; being a divine guide
He lives an ethical life; tells followers never to live otherwise
Indebted to him; & in indebtedness bow our heads to inscribe
