إن الإنسان لفي خسر

 

I did NOT write the following poem…

“By (the Token of) Time (through the Ages), Verily Man is in loss” [103:1-2]

Age quickly marks
Its natural manifestations,
Yet wisdom takes its time
In refining its contender –
Indeed, man is a creature of haste

In a swift race against time
Ignorance is found creeping,
Bit By Bit,
into the days of men,
amassing in perfect mismatch.

But a path found its way
In hidden and open secret…

Sacrifice of a select few;
They walked upon this earth restless,
Knowledge was their weapon,
faith their armor,
Unwilling to find peace
before seeing their task complete.

The certainty of a scholar’s unwavering trust
in Al-Hafith, Al-Waliyy, Ar-Rafeeq,
will permeate through epochs.

Generations receive the message
with
open hearts,
open minds,
open souls.

Truth is discovered by those who seek it.

“…Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy.” [103:3]
