SELECT POEMS OF IMAM AL SHAFI

From the Book

  • Let the days do as they please
  • And be optimistic when destiny decrees
  • Do not despair due to the events of nights past
  • For the events of this world were not meant to last
  • And be a man who, in the face of fear is strong
  • With loyalty and forbearance adorned
  • And if your mistakes are many amongst the folk
  • And you wish to have for those mistakes a cloak
  • Then conceal them with generosity as hence
  • Every fault is covered as –is said- by benevolence
  • And do not show weakness to an enemy
  • For dispersion of foes is a calamity
  • Generosity cannot be hoped from the miserly
  • For no water exists in the Fire for the thirsty
  • And your rizq will not decrease though late it may arrive
  • And it will not increase though one may slave and strive
  • No sadness lasts forever, nor any felicity
  • Nor any state of poverty or one of luxury
  • If you are the owner of a heart that is content
  • Then you and the owner of the world are equivalent
  • And for him upon whose horizon death descends,
  • No earth can offer him protection, nor any sky defend
  • The earth of Allah is certainly vast and infinite
  • But if decree descends, then all the sky constricts
  • Let the days betray every once in a while
  • For there is no medicine that will protect from death
