Bazaar of Paradise


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Abu Muhammad Sa’adi Muswlih ad-Din ibn ‘Abdullah ash-Shirazi (q.s.) wrote, in al-Bustan:

“On Judgement Day,
When the bazaar of Paradise will be arrayed,
Rank will be assigned in accordance with one’s deeds.
If you should take a goodly stock of virtues,
In proportion will be your profit;
If you were to be bankrupt, you will be ashamed.
If fifty years of your life have passed,
Esteem as a precious boon the few that yet remain.
While still you have the power of speech,
Close not your lips, like the dead, from the praise of God.”
