- ALLAH gives light in the darkness,
- Allah gives rest in pain,
- Cheeks that are white with weeping
- Allah paints red again.
- The flowers and the blossoms wither,
- Years vanish with flying feet;
- But my heart will live on forever,
- That here in sadness beats.
- Gladly to Allah's dwelling
- Yonder would I take flight;
- There will the darkness vanish,
- There will my eyes have sight.
- Siegfried August Mahlmann (tr. H.W. Longfellow)
