‘Ilm – Knowledge

O learners of knowledge!

O preservers of knowledge!

In the chests of dark oceans,

Pearls of crystal I have seen,

When a believer strives for ‘ilm

Doors of knowledge bang open,

When hunger uproots,

The nafs’s shackled,

Chains locked,

Humility bellows,

Piety blooms,

And the sigh of ‘Love thy ummah’

All – but uproars,

O learners of knowledge!

O preservers of knowledge!

Only then,

‘Ilm serves eternity for the worthy

Ones striving for it are rich whilst destitution…
