Holy Ramadan Card :: Rumi's Poetry
Caption: "O moon-faced Beloved, the month of Ramadan has arrived.
Cover the table and open the path of praise."
The great Muslim poet Jalal al-Din Rumi sang about Ramadan in the 13th century AD (translation by A.J. Arberry):
"The month of fasting has come, the emperor's banner has arrived;
The soul has escaped from separation and bound nature's hands;
let us sacrifice all our body, since the soul has arrived as guest.
Fortitude is as a sweet cloud, wisdom rains from it,
...Wash your hands and your mouth, neither eat nor speak;
Peace, barakat, light, tayid, and a batini-noorani didar,
