The Dust Is My Bed

islamic burial

Farshi Turab Dust is my bed, embraces me and it’s my cover now The sand surrounds me even behind my back And the grave tells a dankness of my affliction And the brightness draws a line……………

Where is my family’s love? They sold my loyalty! And where is my group of friends? They left my brotherhood!

Where is the bliss of money? It’s behind my back now And my name (reputation) where is it shine between praises

This is my end and this is my bed And love farewells its longing and my elegizing cried And the tears went dry after crying And the universe became narrow and so is my space

And the grave became my ground and sky This is my end and this is my bed Fear fills my estrangement and sadness is my illness I expect firmness and I swear it’s my cure And for Allah i pray faithfully, you are my hope Allah! I desire heaven, to find bliss in it And for Allah i pray faithfully, you are my hope Allah! I desire heaven, to find bliss in it
