A Poem by Imam al-Shafi’i

May 28, 2015 Comments Off on A Poem by Imam al-Shafi’i

The famous Imam Shafi’i, Allah have Mercy upon him, said,

O family of al-Mustafa ﷺ,
O those whom I turn to,
O those whose love is my reliance,
you are my intercessors on the Day of Judgment.
Why should I be afraid when I trust you and have confidence in you?
He who loves you will reside eternally in Paradise…

یا أهل بیتِ المصطفی یا عدتی
وَ مَن علی حبّهُم أعتَمدُ
أنتم إلی اللهِ غَداً وَسیلَتی
و کیف أخشی؟ و بکم اعتضدُ
ولیّکم فی الخُلدِ حَیّ خَالدٌ

~ Extracted from the Collection of Imam Shafi’i’s Poetry, pg. 222-223, Dar al-Kitab al-Arabi, Beirut, 1414 A.H.
