A Poem of Truth and the Fire
And who can doubt the similitude of truth, to a flame?
Truth destroys falsehood and consumes it
Is it not evident in the example of Hell?
Created by He that is the Truth (Al Haqq)
It consumes falsehood, of both idols and hearts
Likewise, truth’s advocate (da’i) – a firestarter
Setting fires amongst the dry decayed weeds of lies, and vines of deceit
So that a purified earth can bring forth the good fruits
Thus does fire produce light and heat
Do you not see how the one who rejects truth, writhes in torment when they hear it?
Thus the disbelievers, ever concerned, do ask thee in accusation:
“Have you started a fire?!”
Say: Yes, the Fire Rises…
