Shaykh ibn al-Farid (q.s.) on Radiance

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh ibn al-Farid (q.s.) wrote:

“Is it a flash of lightning that shone over the mottled mountain,
Or, do I see a lantern flickering in the hills of Najd?
Or is it Layla of the Banu Amir who unveiled her face at night,
And converted the evening dusk into radiant dawn?”
