Courage - Poem by Abu at-Tayyib al-Mutanabbi

Courage to reason second place must take.
For valour should not balanced judgment shake.
But if both in a hard soul united are,
Then Glory's realms their own demesne shall make.

    The translation of Al-Mutanabbi's verses in this famous poem is extremely poor and loses the magic this top Arab poet gave to the world. This is really disappointing! (Report) Reply
