Recite the Qur’an and sanctify [God] with diligent declaration.
Surely! It is a month for the Qur’an and Glorification.
Hold back your bodily appetites, seeking the salvation of your soul.
For with time, the earth will consume the body whole.
How many fasting people have you known – now deceased they lie?
Amongst your family, neighbours, and not brothers alone.
Death has removed them leaving you behind.
Be serious in your Faith, for indeed the living are quite close to the dead!
You take delight in the attires of ‘Eid being stitched for the festival now.
But soon they will be your burial wrap.
How long will a person be content with his worldly home?
Knowing the grave as his ultimate abode.
