Who is the stranger?

Who is the stranger?

A translation of a poem by Shaykh Saad Al Ghamidi based on yesterday’s hadith, “The Strangers”.

“The stranger is he who is serious while the people around him play

And is awake while the people around him sleep

And follows the best path while the people around him plot and plan in their misguidance

And truthful was the poet when he said:

My friend said to me, ‘I see you as a stranger

Amongst these people without a close friend.

I said ‘No! But the people are strange, I’m only in this world and this is my way.

This is indeed the stranger

Strange to those who mock from amongst mankind

But in the Sight of his Lord, he is at a Noble Station.”
