The poem is originally published at Muslim Words blog.
What has stopped man from asceticism O Lord!
For whom the universe cries he is that one,
It be not ease for a man,
For the world is materialistic,
The inventions by morn and eve,
Obstruct like Iblis,
Make us far from the One True Creator!
For an ascetic,
It all but burns the sins,
The dignified live soul then reveals in a millennia.
