PEARLS OF THE FAITH: 61. AL-MO'HYI, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: And of his signs is this, saith the great book
Last Line: He saves the green thing, and not thee?
Subject(s): God; Islam


Al-Mo'hyî! the "Quickener!" hereby
Praise Him whom Angels praise eternally.

"And of His signs is this," saith the Great Book;
"Under the angry sun the slain earth—look!—
Dries up the dust; dies every growing thing;
Then blow we breaths of southern wind which bring
Rain-dropping clouds, and see! the dead earth lives,
And stirs, and swells; and every herb revives.
So shall the dead be quickened by His breath,
This is Al-Mo'hyî's sign," the Great Book saith.

Oh, thou believer! shall it be
He saves the green thing, and not thee?
