Abu Saeed : Be a human

The following brief poem by Sheikh Abu Saeed Abil Khair speaks of the moment of annihilation – meaning not some mythological ending of creation but the destruction every created being must face sooner or later. For more about Shaikh Abu Saeed, see this earlier post.

When destruction appears in six directions,
when all is annihilated,
your love-tamed heart will be the measure of your worth!
Work on your love, be a human while there is still time.
On the day of reckoning only this will count.

from Nobody, Son of Nobody
