MY PRAY, A POEM WRITTEN BY HAMZAH FANSURI

 

God whatever your bounty for me in the world

Grant to your enemies

 

And whatever your bounty for me in the afterlife

Dedicate to your best friends

Oh to me, enough of your presence

Oh to me, enough of your presence

 

If I prostrate for you God for fear of hell

Burn me with the fire of hell

When prostration me God because crave heaven

So close the gates of heaven to me

 

But if you prostrate for your sake only

O God, do not turn away from me

I miss looking at your beauty O God

I miss looking at your beauty O God

 

A poem sung by the people of Aceh is believed based on the folklore of this poem written by Hamzah Fansuri.

About tengkuputeh

Cepat seperti angin // Tekun seperti hujan // Bergairah seperti api // Diam seperti gunung // Misterius seperti laut // Kejam seperti badai // Anggun seperti ngarai // Hening seperti hutan // Dalam seperti lembah // Lembut seperti awan // Tangguh seperti karang // Sederhana seperti debu // Menyelimuti seperti udara // Hangat seperti matahari // Luas seperti angkasa // Berserakan seperti debu //
