Imam Shaf'i's poem



From

http://youtube.com/watch?v=bVXI-d3Wtow

the poem in arabic:

ولما قسـا قلبي وضـاقت مذاهبي
جعلت الرجـاء مني لعفوك سلمــا
تعاظمني ذنبـي فلمـا قرنتــه
بعفوك ربي كان عـفوك أعظمــا
فما زلتَ ذا عفو عن الذنب لم تزل
تـجـود وتعـفو منة وتكرمـــا
فلولاك لـم يصمـد لإبلـيس عابد
فكيف وقد أغوى صفيك أدما
فيا ليت شعــري هل أصير لجنة
أهنـــا؟ وأمـا للسعير فأندما
فإن تنتـقـم مني فلست بآسي
ولو أدخلت روحي بجــرم جهنمـا
فإن تعف عني تعف عـن متمرد
ظلوم غشــوم قاسي القلب مجرما
ويذكر أيام مضت من شبابه
وما كان فيها بالجهالة أجرما
يقيم إذا ما الليل مد ضلامه
على نفسه من شدة الخوف مأتما
يقول حبيبي أنت سؤلي وغايتي
كفى بك للراجين سؤلا و مغنما
الست الذي غذيتني و هديتني
ولازلت منانا علي ومنعما
عسى من له الإحسان يغفر زلتي
ويستر أوزاري وما قد تقدما

translation into English:
When my heart hardened and my ways narrowed
My hope of your forgiveness toward you was my approach
I greatened my sin, yet when i compare it with your forgiveness
My Lord your forgiveness was greater
Yet, you forgive sins and still
Generously and gracefully bestow and forgive
Were it not You, none worshiper withstand against Satan
How and he already has lured Your chosen Adam
Alas! Would i be lead to paradise then I am a fortunate
Or a remorse to hell I am lead
Indeed not despaired if You avenged me
Or into the core of hell You brought my soul
And if you forgive me, a mutinous You forgive...
A wrongful unfair pitiless criminal...
He remembers the past youth days
And what crimes of ignorance were committed
Then, when the dark spread out
Fearfully he mourns himself
Saying my beloved you are my request and wish
Sufficient You are for the hopeful to ask and gain
Were not you who fed me and guided me?!
And still, You give me generously and bless me
May You, Whom my charity to Him, forgive me faults,
Pardon my sins and what came before

  2. ALLAH DOES NOT STOP TO FORGIVE UNTIL THE PERSON BREATHS HIS LAST
    WHATEVER GOOD THE PERSON HAS DONE MAYBE USED INSCIALAH TO CANCEL HIS SINS DAY OF JUDGMENT AND THAT START WITH SALAT THAT IF IS IN ORDER EVERYTHING DONE GOOD WRITTEN ON THE RECORD WILL BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT
    THE MERCY AND THE COMPASSION TOWARDS SOMEONE WHO BELIEVED IN THE ABSOLUTE INFINTE ONENESS OF ALLAH ACTED IN SINCERITY BUT HE WAS WEAK DESPITE HIS EFFORTS COULD BE SUCH THAT HE ENTERS JANNAH
    THE MERCY AND COMPASSION OF ALLAH TA' ALA CANNOT BE EVEN BEGIN TO BE COHMPREHENDED BY MANKIND
    THE EFFORT MUST BE DONE DESPITE THE DRAWBACKS THAT MOST OF US FALL IN, BUT TAUBA IS THERE TO SAY " OK YOU HAVE SINNED!BUT LO!! YOU HAVE ANOTHER CHANCE BEFORE MALIK AL MOUT KNOCKS ON YOUR DOOR TO ASK ALLAH FOR FORGIVNESS AND GIVE UP YOUR SIN AND WHATEVER BAD YOU HAVE DONE! TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS OPPORTUNITY NOW!! BECAUSE YOU MAY NOT HAVE ANOTHER CHANCE! BE SMART"
    NEVERTHELESS ALLAH HAS BEEN ALREADY MORE THAN INFINITE GENEROUS WITH US IN THE CORAN HE SAYS: " WHAT FAVOURS OF YOUR LORD MAY YOU DENY???" AND THEY ARE COUNTLESS.
    AND HE TA'ALA WILL CONTINUE TO BE GENEROUS WITH US FOR ETERNITY AS A FAVOUR TOWRDS THOSE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO HAVE EARNED HIS PLEASURE IN THIS LIFE.
    MIGHT US BE INSCIALLAH AMONG THESE FORTUNATE ONES AND LET'S ASK ALLAH TO GIVE THE STRENGHT TO FOLLOW EVERY DAY BETTER AND BETTER THE STEPS OF OUR BELOVED RASOOLALLAH AL MUSTAFA MUHAMMED SALLA ALLAHU ALAHY WA SALLAM , AS THIS IS THE KEY TO OUR WELLBEING HERE AND IN THE AKHIRA AND TO EARN THE PLESAURE OF THE ALMIGHTY ALLAH TA'ALA
