Al Fajr

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمـَنِ الرَّحِيم


Al Fajr

By the dawn
And the ten nights
And the even and the odd

O you tranquil soul!
Return to your Lord, well-pleased and pleasing
[al-Fajr: 1-3; 27-28]

Loftiness is attained in accordance to one’s struggles,
And whoever seeks nobility, remains vigilant by night.
Whoever wishes to achieve without due effort,
Will waste their life in seeking what’s impossible.
You search for glory and yet you sleep at night,
It’s only the seeker of pearls who dives deep into the sea.

–  Imam al-Shafi’i, al-Diwan
