A POEM BY IMAM SHAFI'I

I think this poem can motivate people for their life. This poem is written by Imam Shafi'i. Our Imam, and one of our role model. Enjoy! 😇


WANDER
By Imam Asy-Shafi'i
A scholar and a civilized person will not stay in his hometown

Leave your country and wander through other countries


Go away... You're gonna find new families and friends

Exhaust yourself, the sweetness of life comes after struggling


I saw water rot from not flowing

When it flows it becomes clear, if not, it blackens


A lion won't a prey if it stays in its den

An arrow won't hit its target if it doesn't leave its bow


If the sun in its orbit motionless and stays still,

Human will get bored and uninterested to look


Gold ore is just a usual rock before it is dug from the mine

After being processed many people fight for it


Agarwood is just another wood if its left in the jungle

If it sends to the town, it becomes expensive as a gold


Well, this poem easily blows my mind every time I read it. The essence of its sentences…

They thought this major is weird, not really important, can't make a lot of money like what an accountant do if they work in the bank or other company. They wonder what would I do after graduate? Where I will work? Oh, they think in the future I will be a politician and I will do corruption in government like what predecessors did. I'm a sinner then.
I took UIN as my University. Some people in my family and even my old friend said that this university is not good, not qualifie…
