Shaykh Sa’adi ash-Shirazi (q.s.): Administer Justice

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Sa’adi ash-Shirazi (q.s.) said:

“To break the five fingers of a poor man is sin.
Let him be afraid who spares not the fallen,
Because if he falls, no one will take his hand.
Whoever sows bad seed and expects good fruit,
Has cudgeled his brains for naught,
And begotten vain imaginations.
Extract the cotton from your ears,
And administer justice to your people.
If you fail to do so, there is a Day of Retribution.”
