A beautiful traditional Arabic poem describing the journey and experience of someone setting out on the path of love for God. This rendition is more recent and catchy. For those who speak Arabic, pay attention to the words - they will inspire you!

Aid us in the light of this Muhammad’s way,
And make its glorious end as bright as its first day

The Prayer of the Oppressed (Du’a an-Nasiri)

Translated by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf

The Sun Never Says

Even after all this time 
The sun never says to the earth, 
"You owe Me." 

Look what happens with 
A love like that, 
It lights the Whole Sky.

~Hafiz

18 Notes

 
IT HAS NOT RAINED LIGHT
It has not rained light for many days.
The Wells in most eyes look
Drought-stricken.

Thus friends are not easy to find
In this barren
Place.

Where most everyone has become ill
From guarding
Nothing.

On this primal caravan
Careers and cities can appear real in this
Intense
Desert heat.

But I say to my close ones,
"Don’t get lost in them,
It has not rained light there for days.

Look, most everyone is diseased
From ‘making love’ to
Nothing.”

IT HAS NOT RAINED LIGHT

It has not rained light for many days.

The Wells in most eyes look

Drought-stricken.


Thus friends are not easy to find

In this barren

Place.


Where most everyone has become ill

From guarding

Nothing.


On this primal caravan

Careers and cities can appear real in this

Intense

Desert heat.


But I say to my close ones,

"Don’t get lost in them,

It has not rained light there for days.


Look, most everyone is diseased

From ‘making love’ to

Nothing.”
