    Default Majnun Layla?



    Brothers and Sisters, I was wondering if any of you know where I can find some online Ash'aar (poems) by Majnun Layla?(not his actual name) . I'm doing some reading thru my Arabic Grammar book Kawaakib....it's been almost 3 years since I did it but I'm revising it myself now, and it contains quite alot of poetry, but these poems by this particular man (called Majnun Layla) caught my eye......it's a sort of romance poems like . However his poems are not listed fully in my Kawaakib book. So does anyone know where I can find them online?

    Here's one poem sis. But it's written by Ghalib, not Majnu (real name Qais) himself. Will this do? If yes, then lemme know. I will find some more for you inshaAllah.

    I perceive the world as a playground
    Where dawn and dusk appear in eternal rounds
    In His Universal form is a plaything the throne of Solomon
    The miracles of the Messiah seem so ordinary in my eyes
    Without name I cannot comprehend any form
    Illusionary but is the identity of all objects
    My anguish envelopes the entire desert
    Silently flows the river in front of my floods
    Ask not what separation has done to me
    Just see your poise when I come in front of you
    Truly you say that I am egotistical and proud
    It is the reflection, O friend, in your limited mirror
    To appreciate the style and charm of conversation
    Just bring in the goblet and wine
    Hatred manifests due to my envious mind
    Thus I say, don't take his name in front of me
    Faith stops me while temptations attract
    Inspite of Kaaba behind and church ahead
    I am the Lover, yet notorious is my charm
    Thus Laila calls names to Majnu in front of me
    "Dies" not one though the union is a delight
    In premonition of the separation night
    Alas, this be it, the bloody separation wave
    I know not what else is in store ahead of me
    Though the hands don't move, the eyes are alive
    Wine and goblet, let them stay in front of me
    Says "Ghalib"
    Conscience is companion and trusted friend
    Don't pass any judgments in front of me.

    I totally forgot this thread but shukr hai you found what you were looking for

    May I share this layla majnun poem?

    It's punjabi by the way..

    Meem Majnun nu kisse taana ditta - Teri Layla ae rang di kaali
    Meem Majnun par't jawab ditta - Teri akh nai wekhan wali
    Quran shareef de war'k ne chitte - Utthe seyahi ae Rabb di kaali


    I'll try & translate it (roughly)

    Someone rediculed Majnun that his Layla's complexion is black
    Meem Majnun turned and replied, Your sight is lacking the knack
    For the pages of the Quran are white, Yet Rabbs ink on it is black





    Meem Majnun* like saying, A apple etc etc...

    ^ I have never read the Malay version of Majnun Laila, but if they use the same name, I suppose they are talking about the same person? and yes it's very much like a romeo juliet lol

    It is true then?

    I've heard lots of stories about Layla Majnun. One is when Majnun, so lost in Layla's love was wondering through the desert and out of his mind for unrequited love he walked in front of a man praying salah. The man started yelling at Majnun to which Majnun replied, "I did not know what I was doing in rememberance of Layla, yet then how in your rememberance of The Lord were you aware of what is happening around you." That's heavy lol.

    Yeah, similar. All stories of unrequited pure love. Sassi Punno used to put a bamboo pole between them so they wouldn't accidently touch each other and taint their pure love. I dunno if anyone's heard of Sohni Mahiwal and how they drowned when Sohni's wicked aunt swapped the clay vessel she used to swim across the river to meet Mahiwal, with an unbaked one. Well I live near that river in Pakistan. Eerie!

    Laila Majnun was a classic. They had so much love for each other, they could even feel the hurt the when the other person was hurt.
