This Time

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

This is a time, when brothers,
O Man, are not brothers.
When brothers all are unjust -
They have two tongues and two faces.
He meets you with a smiling face, but in his heart,
There is a disease which he secretly hides,
Until you are out if his sight –
Then he throws after you falsehood and lies.
Such are the people of this time -
There are not two are true in love.
O Man, live then your life alone.
Do not seek the company of other men.
Live side by side with people, but keep
Yourself safe within house and walls.

‘Ali ibn Abi Thalib (k.w.)
