Among his poems is the poem "Oh Sari", which was sung by Mohamed Abdel Wahhab:
O sari to the path of the Prophet and save the usurped country
Is there any of our flags on the desert when the sun rises and the planet descends?
They have captivated us, the lord of a wild pony whose response to the enemy is the cunning of the fox
We rose up, and when we saw a cry of vengeance and a wave of anger
The soldiers marched, and the time had come, and the spacious field was yesterday and tomorrow
And the range is a heart, an eye, a hand, and the fragrance is fragrant redemption
And it resounded in its turbulent horizon, and Palestine was on every mouth
The echo meets it in the range and leads it to a greater horizon
So we set out behind the dimensions of the Mona in the noisy, raging field
We are your revolutionaries, we came to ransom your precious grief with bloodshed
We turned all the cream of belonging to the covenant and shook the flag
We seek your glory on earth and sky, and glory under the shadows of the procession
