Fatih-ISTANBUL/TURKEY
2000

The following poem is the translation of a part of the Persian Dwn by Mawln Diy ad-dn Khlid al-Baghdad (qaddas-Allhu tal sirrah al-azz).

OH WHAT A PITY!

Ive idled my life away, oh what a pity!
Never thought of the Morrow, oh what a pity!

Ive set the building in the air so foolishly,
My faith on weak foundation, oh what a pity!

Ive gone too far saying His Mercy is endless,
Forgotten His Name Qahhr, oh what a pity!

Ive dived into sins and never done any good,
Why gone astray the right path, oh what a pity!

Ive struggled to win the world and worldly virtue,
And missed the endless blessings, oh what a pity!

The road is rough and dark, the Devil leads the way,
Sins are heavy, I weep all day, oh what a pity!

Without a single virtue to appear in my deed-book,
How will this Khlid be saved, oh what a pity!
