I think this poem can motivate people for their life. This poem is written by Imam Shafi'i. Our Imam, and one of our role model. Enjoy! πŸ˜‡


By Imam Asy-Shafi'i

A scholar and a civilized person will not stay in his hometown

Leave your country and wander through other countries

Go away... You're gonna find new families and friends

Exhaust yourself, the sweetness of life comes after struggling

I saw water rot from not flowing

When it flows it becomes clear, if not, it blackens

A lion won't a prey if it stays in its den

An arrow won't hit its target if it doesn't leave its bow

If the sun in its orbit motionless and stays still,

Human will get bored and uninterested to look

Gold ore is just a usual rock before it is dug from the mine

After being processed many people fight for it

Agarwood is just another wood if its left in the jungle

If it sends to the town, it becomes expensive as a gold

Well, this poem easily blows my mind every time I read it. The essence of its sentences is so touching deeply inside. His (Imam Shafi'i) writings are never disappointing at all. All his poems are so motivating and I really proud that Islam has great people as he is throughout the world history.

I've changed and added some new words because I thought there was a little bit lack of this poem who written by the real author before. But overall, her writing is fine. Sorry, if I got mistaken too. I'm just a human. Peace.
