    Here are some poems by Imaam Shaafi'

    صَدِيقٌ لَيْسَ يَنْفَعُ يَوْمَ بُؤْسٍ * قَرِيبٌ مِنْ عَدْوٍّ فِي القِيَاسِ
    وَمَا يَبْقَى الصَّدِيقُ بِكُلِّ عَصْرٍ * وَلاَ الإِخْوَانُ إِلاَّ لِلتَّآسِي
    عَبَرْتُ الدَّهْرَ مُلْتَمِسَاً بِجُهْدِي * أَخَا ثِقَةٍ فَأَلْهَانِي التِمَاسِي
    تَنَكَّرَتِ البِلاَدُ وَمَنْ عَلَيْهَا * كَأَنَّ أُنَاسَهَا لَيْسُوا بِنَاسِ

    A friend who does not benefit at the time of hardships,
    Is close to an enemy on the scales,
    The friend does not remain, during all times,
    Nor does the brother, except for consolation.
    I searched the days, with all my strengths
    for a brother to trust, but my search was fruitless,
    The lands and those who live them were barren,
    As though its people were not people [I wanted them to be]

    Re: Imaam Shaafi'


    إِذَا الْمَرْءُ أَفْشَى سِرِّهُ بِلِسَانِهِ * وَلاَمَ عَلَيْهِ غَيْرَهُ فَهُوَ أَحْمَقُ
    إِذَا ضَاقَ صَدْرُ المَرْءِ عَنْ سِرِّ نَفْسِهِ * فَصَدْرُ الَّذِي يُسْتَودْعُ السِّرَّ أَضْيَقُ

    If a man spreads his secret with his own tongue
    and blames another... then he is a fool.
    If his own breast is too narrow to conceal his own secret,
    Then the breast of the one in whom he places it is even narrower.

    Re: Imaam Shaafi'

    و من الشَقاوة أن تحبَ
    و من تحبُ يحبُ غيرك
    أو أن تريد الخير للأن
    سان و هو يريد ضيرك

    "And from misery is that you love, and (the one) who you love, loves other than you,
    or that you want good for a person, and he wants to hurt you".

    Re: Imaam Shaafi'

    Part from the days where you used to do as you wish
    And restrain your soul when the decree of Allah is ordained
    And don't despair over the events of the past
    For none of the events of the dunya were ever meant to remain
    And be a man who is firm upon his affairs
    And whose character is that of pardoning and nobility
    And there is no sadness or happiness that is continuous
    Just as there is there is no comfort or pain
    If you are a person who is satisfied with what he has
    Then you and the owner of all possessions are equal
    And upon he who's open valley death descends upon
    Then there is no earth or sky to protect you from it
    And the earth of Allah is vast but
    When the ordainment of Allah descends even the open valley congests.

    Jazakallah Khayr for sharing these, as poems by scholars are inspiring and often carry advice and lessons to be learnt.

    Naudhubillah i don't want to be a fool... if i ever blurted out my secrets...i shall remind myself not to blame the person who spread it...

    Jazakallah khair. Here's another. I have one other one, but I have to look for it..

    A Contented Life
    Let the days pass as they will
    Be content with Allah’s will.
    Do not regret what this day’s cast,
    For this world’s pains for sure won’t last.
    Be a man against fears strong,
    Be kind and loyal, all life long.
    If in folk’s eyes your faults abound,
    And you wish that they be gowned:
    Then shelter seek beneath kind acts,
    For kindness well all blame retracts.
    From enemies hide your weakness
    For gloating foes do bring distress.
    From misers never seek favor:
    In fire there is no water.
    Patience won’t reduce income,
    Nor fretfulness increase the sum.
    Neither pain nor joy shall last,
    Nor poverty, nor riches vast.
    But if your heart is satisfied
    Then you do own the whole world wide.
    A man on whom his fate alights
    No depths shall save, nor any heights.
    Allah’s earth is wide, but know,
    That destiny makes it narrow.
    Face each day on even keel.
    There’s no balm from death can heal.
    Imaam Shaafi'

    Re: Imaam Shaafi'



    Awesome poem.


    إلَيكَ إلـهُ الخَلْـق أرْفَــعُ رَغبَتِي *** و‘نْ كُنتُ يَا ذا المَنّ والجُودِ مُجْرِما

    ‘To You, the Creator, I raise my longing,
    And even if I am, O possessor of kindness and generosity, an evildoer, a criminal


    ولمَّا قَسَـا قلبي وضَـاقت مَذاهِبي *** جَعَلتُ الرَجـا مِني لِعَفوكَ سَلِمــا
    When my heart became constricted and my paths became narrow,
    I took my hope in Your pardon and forgiveness as an opening and an escape


    تعَاظَمَنـي ذنبـي فلمَّـا قرِنتـُـهُ *** بعَفوكَ ربِّي كَانَ عَـفْوكَ أعْظَمــا
    My sins seemed very great to me but when I compared them to Your forgiveness,
    I found Your forgiveness to be much greater


    فمَا زِلتَ ذا عفو عَن الذنْبِ لَمْ تَزُلْ *** تَـجُـود وتعـفو منةً وتَكَرُّمـــا
    You are and still remain the only One who can forgive sins,
    You grant and forgive out of Your benevolence and generosity


    فلولاكَ لَـمْ يَصْمُـدْ لإبلـيسِ عَابدٌ *** فكَيفَ وقدْ أغْوَى صَفْيَك آدِمـــا
    Were it not for You, then a servant could never defy Iblis
    And how can that be when he mislead Your friend Adam


    فيَاليْتَ شَعْــرِي هَل أصَيرُ لِجنة *** أهنـــا؟ وأمَّـا للسَّعِير فأنْدَمــا
    If only I knew! Will I arrive at Paradise that I may take delight
    Or at Hellfire, that I may regret?


    فللّهِ دَر العَـــارِفُ الـنـدبُ إنَّه *** تَفيض لفرْطِ الوَجْد أجفانُه دَمَّـــا
    How capable is Allah! For the one acquainted with lament,
    blood almost flows from his eyelids due to the excess of his emotions (lament)


    يَقيـمُ إذا مَـا الليلُ مَدَّ ظَلامَــه *** على نَفسِهِ مِن شدَّةِ الخَوفِ مَأتمـا
    He stands when the night extends out its darkness
    Stands against himself out of extreme fear, sinful


    فصِيحاً إذا ما كـانَ في ذكْـرِ رَبِّه *** وفيما سِوَاهُ في الوَرى كان أعْجَمـا
    Eloquent when he makes mention of his Lord
    And in the mention of others than Him, he is speechless


    ويَذكُرُ أيَّامـاً مَضَـتْ مِن شَبَابـه *** وما كان فيها بالجَهَـالة أجْرَمـــا
    He remembers days gone by of his youth
    And what was in it of ignorance, he was a criminal


    فصَارَ قَرينُ الهمِّ طُولَ نهَـــارِه *** أخا السَّهدِ والنجوى إذا الليل أظلمـا
    And so for the whole of his day, the companion of grief has become
    the brother of sleeplessness and secret conversation when the night darkens


    يقول: حَبيبي أنـتَ سُؤلِي وبَغيتي *** كفى بكَ للرَّاجـيـنَ سُؤلاً ومغنمـا
    He says, ‘My beloved, You are what I request and desire
    You are enough of a longing and benefit for those who have hope


    ألـسْتَ الذي غذيْتني وهَــدَيْتني *** ولا زلتَ مَنـَّانـا عليّ ومُنعِـمــا
    Are You not the One who has provided for me and guided me
    And You have not ceased being gracious to me and full of favours


    عسَى مَنْ لَـهُ الإحْسَانَ يَغفِرُ زَلتِي *** ويَسْترُ أوْزارِي ومـا قـدْ تقدَّمــا
    Perhaps the Beneficent One will forgive my mistakes
    And cover up my crime and what has gone forth


    تعاظمَني ذنبـي فأقبلتُ خاشِعــاً *** وَلوْلا الرِّضَـا ما كنتُ يَاربِّ مُنعَمـا
    My sins seemed very great to me, so I turned (to You) in humility
    Were it not for my contentment in you, I wouldn’t, O my Lord, have seen any comfort at all


    فإنْ تعْفُ عَني تعْفُ عَـنْ مُتمَرِّد *** ظلوم غشــوم لا يَـزايَـلَ مأتمـا
    So if You forgive me, You would have forgiven a sinner,
    A rebellious, oppressive tyrant still sinning


    فإن تنتـقـِمْ مِني فلستُ بآيـسٍ *** ولو أدخلوا نفسي بجـُـرْم جَهَنَّمـا
    So if You were to seek revenge from me, I would not despair
    Even if they entered my soul into Jahannum, due to the sins


    فجُرْمِي عَظيم مِن قديم وحـَـادِث *** وعفوكَ يَأتي العَبْـدَ أعْلى وأجْسَمــا
    For my crimes are great, past and present
    But Your forgiveness comes to the servant, more exalted and more great


    حوالي َّ فضلُ الله مِن كلِّ جَانِـب *** ونورٌ مِن الرَّحمـَن يُفترش السَّمــا
    The bounty of Allaah surrounds me from all sides
    And Light from the Most Merciful has spread in the sky


    وفي القلبِ إشراقُ المحب بوَصْلِه *** إذا قارب البُـشرَى وجَازَ إلى الحمى
    And in the heart is the radiance of the beloved when he is reunited
    And when glad tidings draw close, it becomes feverish

    حوالي إينــاس مِن الله وَحْـدَه *** يُطالعَني فِي ظلـمـةِ القبرأنجَمــا
    Exhilaration surrounds me, only for Allaah
    It overlooks me in the darkness of the grave, apparent and clear


    أصُونُ وَدادي أن يُدنّسـه الهَوَى *** وأحفظُ عـَهْدِ الـحُبِّ أن يَتثلمــا
    I protect my love, lest my desires should pollute it
    And I preserve the contract of love, lest it be defiled


    ففي يَقظتِي شَوْقٌ وفي غَفوَتِي منى *** تلاحـِقُ خُـطوَى نـشوَةً وترنمـا
    In my wakefulness is yearning and in my slumber is destiny
    That’s pursuing my footsteps in ecstasy


    ومَن يَعْتصِمْ بالله يُسَلم مِن الوَرَى *** ومَن يَرْجه هَـيْهَاتُ أنْ يَتندُمـــا
    Whoever holds fast to Allaah, he is protected from men
    And whoever hopes for Him, then never will he regret
    Imaam Shaafi'
