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,
Becoming idols,
Make us far from the One True Creator!

For an ascetic,
O Lord!
It all but burns the sins,
The dignified live soul then reveals in a millennia.
