Be content!

Be content!

Good Monday to all of you!

Some have really liked my previous post, “If somebody doesn’t care about you” and enjoyed the translation for Imam Alshafii’s poem! So here is more of a modern poem that I really liked by Saudi poet Mohamed Albakri and it was later sang by renowned Syrian singer Maan Barghouth. The poem is a series of advises that begins with “Be Content“. Maan’s became famous with his single hit, Hala BelKhamis (Welcome, Thursday). Here is the poem, and as a bonus as always, the poem sang by Maan. As always, if you have better translation, please don’t forget to comment it or contact me directly! Have a great week and be content!


وكُــنْ راضِـيـاً لا تَـسـخَـطَـنَّ لـشِـدةٍ

كَما الشوكُ لا يُعطِي الرَحِيقَ ولا العِنَب

Be content! Don’t resent because of hardships..

Just like thorns don’t give nectar nor grapes

إذا الـمَرءُ لـم يَرضـَى بـِما رَبُهُ وهَـبْ

فلـنْ يُغـنِـهِ مـالٌ وإنْ زادَ مـا كـَسَـب

فكُـنْ راضِـيـاً.. تُرضِـي الإلَـهَ بـأمـرِهِ

فدربُ الرِضَى نورٌ، ونبتُ الرِضَى ذَهَب

If the person isn’t content what his/her God given them 

No matter how much wealth would be enough even if it increases tremendously 

So be content!… so God would be pleased with you that you accept destiny made for you by Him..

Because the path of being content is light..and the seeds of satisfaction are gold!

وإحـسـانُ ظـنٍ فـي الإلـهِ، وشُـكـرُهُ

فـتِلـكَ معَـانِ الخَـيرِ خُـطَّ بِـهَـا الأدَب

إلـيـكَ غـصـونـاً دانـيـاتٍ قُـطـوفُـهـا

ومـنـبـعَ خيـراتٍ يفـيضُ وقد نَـضَـب

And goodwill and expecting great things from God and thanking him..

Those are the meanings of good, written(calligraphy style) by good manners

Here to you.. low hanging branches you can pick..

And the waterfalls of good; overflowing that never diminishes

إســلامٌ، وإحـسـانٌ، وصـبـرٌ، وجـيـرَةٌ

وأفعـالُ خـيرٍ تُـستَـزادُ بِـهـا الـرُتَـب

وإحـسـانُ ظـنٍ فـي الإلـهِ، وشُـكـرُهُ

فـتِلـكَ معَـانِ الخَـيرِ خُـطَّ بِـهَـا الأدَب .

Islam, being good to others, patients, good neighborly 

All acts of good that will increase your rank 

And goodwill and expecting great things from God and thanking him..

Those are the meanings of good, written(calligraphy style) by literature
