Al-Bâri! Moulder of each form and frame,—
Pots praise the Potter, when we speak this name.

Praise be to God, the Designer, Builder of earth and of Heaven!
Fashioned His Angels He hath, making them messengers still;
Two wings to some and four wings to some, and to some He hath given
Six and eight silver wings, making what marvels He will.

Verily mighty is He, and what He bestoweth of blessing
None can withhold; and none what He withholdeth can send;
Children of men! remember the mercies of Allah to ward ye,
Is there a Maker save this, is there another such Friend?

Nowhere another one we see,
Wondrous "Artificer!" like
