Muhammad ibn Idris Al Shafii
O You Who Seeks Glory and Strength
O you who seeks glory and strength in this world and its glitter,
Know that time comes over every building and builder.
And whoever's glory comes from this world and its glitter,
Then soon his glory will fade and will be no longer.
Know that the treasures of the earth lie in riches and gold,
So make your treasure lie in piety and faith.
