Naseeha al-Buzidi

Foods destined location be foul smelling intestine canals,
Give it its appropriate attention – keeping your back verti-cal.

Rise! Invoke your Lord day and night, night and day,
Drag away slumber and heedlessness, God’s Mercy might encompass you this day.

Vigilance leads you to direct divine knowledge and light,
Witness it with your inner sight.

Watch your inner darkness dissipate in an instance,
Inner torch shone light towards divine guidance.

Once this state reached no withering, no change,
Meet your Lord, His contentment and pleasure having attained.

Inspired by the advice of Sidi Muhammad al-Habib al-Buzidi (may Allah sanctify his soul).
