PEARLS OF THE FAITH: 41. YA HASIB, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Give more than thou takest
Last Line: Our good deeds needs must be so small.
Subject(s): God; Islam


Laud Him as "Reckoner," casting up th' account,
And making little merits largely mount.

Give more than thou takest:
If one shall salute thee,
Saying, "Peace be upon thee,"
The salute which thou makest,
Speak it friendlier still,
As beseemeth good will;
Saying, "Peace, too, and love
From Allah above
Be with thee:"—for heard
Is each brotherly word;
And it shall not be lost
That thou gavest him most.

Ya Hasîb! praise to Thee; for all
Our good deeds needs must be so small.
