PEARLS OF THE FAITH: 88. AL-MUGHNI, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: God is enough! Thou, who in hope and fear
Last Line: Endure; putting our trust in thee.
Subject(s): God; Islam


He is sufficient, and He makes suffice;
Praise thus again thy Lord, mighty and wise.

God is enough! Thou, who in hope and fear
Toilest through desert-sands of life, sore tried,
Climb trustful over death's black ridge, for near
The bright wells shine: thou wilt be satisfied.

God doth suffice! Oh thou, the patient one,
Who puttest faith in Him, and none beside,
Bear yet thy load; under the setting sun
The glad tents gleam: thou wilt be satisfied.

By God's gold Afternoon! peace ye shall have:
Man is in loss except he live aright,
And help his fellow to be firm and brave,
Faithful and patient: then the restful night!

Al-Mughnî! best Rewarder! we
Endure; putting our trust in Thee.
