**Mehmet Akif ERSOY**

"Odama girdim; kapï¿½yï¿½ kapadï¿½m; aï¿½lamaya
baï¿½ladï¿½m:

O gï¿½n akï¿½ama kadar ï¿½slam'ï¿½n garibliï¿½ine,

mï¿½slï¿½manlarï¿½n inhitï¿½tï¿½na aï¿½ladï¿½m, aï¿½ladï¿½m... "

Sebï¿½lï¿½rreï¿½ï¿½d ï¿½imal mï¿½slï¿½manlarï¿½ndan Atï¿½ullah
Behï¿½eddin

Gï¿½rï¿½nmez ï¿½ï¿½inï¿½ bir ï¿½ehre olsun
rehgï¿½zï¿½rï¿½nda;

Ne gurbettir ï¿½ï¿½ken ï¿½slï¿½m'a ï¿½slï¿½m'ï¿½n
diyï¿½rï¿½nda?

Umar mï¿½ydï¿½n ki: Ma'betler, ibï¿½detler
yetï¿½m olsun?

Ezanlar arkasï¿½ndan aï¿½lasï¿½n bir nesl-i
me’yï¿½sun?

Umar mï¿½ydï¿½n: Cemï¿½'at bekleyip durdukï¿½a
minberler,

Dikilmiï¿½ dï¿½rt direk gï¿½rsï¿½n, serilmiï¿½
bir yï¿½ï¿½ï¿½n mermer?

Umar mï¿½ydï¿½n: Tavanlar yerde yatsï¿½n,
rahneden bï¿½tï¿½b?

Eï¿½iklerden yosun bitsin, ï¿½rï¿½mcek
baï¿½lasï¿½n mihrï¿½b?

Umar mï¿½ydï¿½n: O, taï¿½ taï¿½ devrilen,
bï¿½nyï¿½n-ï¿½ mersï¿½sun,

ï¿½u vï¿½ran kubbelerden bï¿½yle son feryï¿½dï¿½
dem tutsun?

ï¿½ï¿½it: On dï¿½rt asï¿½rlï¿½k bir cihï¿½nï¿½n
inhidï¿½mï¿½ndan,

Kopan ra'dï¿½n, ufuklar inliyor, hï¿½lï¿½
devï¿½mï¿½ndan!

Civï¿½rï¿½n, manzarï¿½n, cevvin, muhï¿½tin,
her yerin mï¿½tem;

Kulak ver: ï¿½arpï¿½yor bir mï¿½temin,
kalbinde bin ï¿½lem!

Ne hï¿½srandï¿½r ki: Doldursun bugï¿½n
tevhï¿½din enkï¿½zï¿½,

O, hï¿½kinden nebï¿½ler fï¿½ï¿½kï¿½ran, iklï¿½m-i
feyyï¿½zï¿½!

Gezerken tavr-ï¿½ istï¿½la alï¿½p meydanda
bin mï¿½nker,

ï¿½u milyonlarca ï¿½man "nehye
kalkï¿½ï¿½sam" demez, ï¿½rker!

ï¿½mï¿½rlerdir bir alï¿½ak zulme miskin
inkï¿½yï¿½dï¿½ndan,

Silinmiï¿½ emr-i bi'l-ma'rï¿½fun artï¿½k
ismi yï¿½dï¿½ndan.

Hayï¿½ sï¿½yrï¿½lmï¿½ï¿½, inmiï¿½: ï¿½yle yï¿½zsï¿½zlï¿½k
ki her yerde...

Ne ï¿½irkin yï¿½zler ï¿½rtermiï¿½ meï¿½er bir
incecik perde!

Vefï¿½ yok ahde hï¿½rmet hiï¿½, emï¿½net
lï¿½fz-ï¿½ bï¿½-medlï¿½l;

Yalan rï¿½ic, hï¿½yï¿½net mï¿½ltezem her
yerde, hak meï¿½hï¿½l.

Yï¿½rekler merhametsiz, duygular sï¿½flï¿½,
emeller hï¿½r;

Nazarlardan taï¿½an ma'nï¿½ ibï¿½dullï¿½hï¿½
istihkï¿½r.

Beyinler ï¿½rperir, yï¿½ Rab, ne korkunï¿½
inkï¿½lï¿½b olmuï¿½:

Ne din kalmï¿½ï¿½, ne ï¿½man, din harï¿½b,
ï¿½man tï¿½rï¿½b olmuï¿½!

Mefï¿½hir kaynasï¿½n gitsin de, vicdanlar
kesilsin lï¿½l...

Bu izmihlï¿½l-i ahlï¿½ki yï¿½rï¿½rken, durmaz
istiklï¿½l!

Sen ey bï¿½ï¿½ï¿½re dindaï¿½, sanki,
bizden hayr ï¿½mï¿½d ettin;

Nihï¿½yet, ye'se dï¿½ï¿½tï¿½n, aï¿½ladï¿½n,
aï¿½lattï¿½n, inlettin.

Samï¿½mï¿½ yaï¿½larï¿½nda coï¿½tu rï¿½hum, herc ï¿½
merc oldu;

Fakat, mï¿½tem halï¿½s etmez cehennemler
saran yurdu.

Cemï¿½'at intibï¿½h ister, uyanmaz gizli
yaï¿½larla?

ï¿½alï¿½ï¿½mak!.. Baï¿½ka yol yok hem nasï¿½l?
Canlarla, baï¿½larla.

Alï¿½nlar terlesin, derhal iner mev'ï¿½d
olan rahmet,

Nasï¿½l hï¿½sir kalï¿½r "tevfï¿½ki
hakkettim" diyen millet?

ï¿½lï¿½hï¿½! Bir mï¿½eyyed bir kerim el yok
mu, tutsun da,

ï¿½ï¿½karsï¿½n ï¿½ark'ï¿½ zulmetten, gï¿½tï¿½rsï¿½n
fecr-i maksï¿½da?
