Ibn Hazm al-Andalusi: “My aspiration in this world…”

“My aspiration in this world…”

"My aspiration in this world is to put forth knowledge,

And to spread it openly in every town and village;

Being one who is calling to the Qur’an and sunan,

That, in their gatherings, the men have forgotten

And, as a Mujaahid, on the farthest frontlines to stay,

If I am called forth, being the first to make my way;

With the clanking of weapons in the darkness, frequented by silence,

Clashing with the disbelievers, encircled by the violence;  

Not turning back, facing my demise with my chest,  

To be killed by a disbeliever is the youth’s death noblest;

So, O my Lord, allow me not to die in any other way,

And use me not as a stuffing for the graves."
