  • Who painted The Black Sea black?

    Asalamu Alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu honoured brethren. Remember that this is only a poem, and should be understood in a symbolic way. May Allah forgive me and you for any mistakes we have written. And may Allah grant us eternal victory! Ameen. This poem wasn't originally supposed to be published in English, so you might find the style of writing a bit strange.


    Who painted the black sea black?


    We reddened The Black Sea
    Blood was spilled, spilled... Blood was spilled!
    We painted The Black Sea
    Oh, painted The Black Sea red

    A young girl was crying out
    Take me back to Sukhumi
    But my dear do you not know
    Abkhazia is painted red, oh painted red

    So we sailed towards Crimea
    Yes we did
    But it was already red
    So we left Crimea alone

    As for Danube, do not ask us what we did
    Roses are red, now the violets are too
    We ask ourselves, what didn't we do?
    Go look yourself, you'll figure out

    Then the redness started rottening
    Disqusting! Like the froth of Ganges
    For centuries had passed
    And the redness betrayed us

    But the time is different,
    So we gathered our men
    Under banners black
    We took the black sea back

    We blackened The Black Sea
    Blood was spilled, spilled... Blood was spilled!
    We painted The Black Sea
    Oh, painted The Black Sea black

    Sisters don't rep or joke with me.

    It made me think so that makes it a good poem
    It's kind of depressing though but i really like the part towards the end

    In my interpretation it's like certain people are coming back to end oppression and make things how it used to be, although i wouldn't say that has been accomplished yet
    and it reminds me of some past events, individuals and mistakes which is why i say it's depressing
    شَكَوْتُ إلَى وَكِيعٍ سُوءَ حِفْظِي
    فَأرْشَدَنِي إلَى تَرْكِ المعَاصي
    وَأخْبَرَنِي بأَنَّ العِلْمَ نُورٌ
    ونورُ الله لا يهدى لعاصي

      BarakAllahu Feek, it's an interesting interpretation.


      Try to see the colours as empires/nations. The black and red colours have been very important for many nations.

        So it seems more about different nations conquering/invading/ruling over each other at different times.
        I get the black I'm just not sure what specific nation the red may represent and maybe it doesn't have to. Good and bad = black and red.

          Ottoman Empire -> Red (The Ottomans painted the black sea red by invading the shores. An example is Crimean rule in the area, or Fatih's conquest of Sohumkale.)

          The black sea became entirely ruled by Muslims.

          Then Turkey & USSR got into action, especially Russia and it's redness which established anti-islamic presence in the sea.

          The blackness is about the future. As you know, the army of Esa (saw) will be active the area south of the black sea. So they will paint the black sea black again in sha Allah. It's a historic poem.
