    Do not malign the Sahâba, appreciate them all!
    Qur’ân witnesses to their common affection!

    Abû Bakr the highest, then come ’Umar; ’Uthmân; Alî;
    Love Mu’âwiya, too; he wrote the Qur’ân’s version!

    O you, young man! As follows is the Sunnî Creed,
    Written in verse and expressed in clear diction:

    If you want a correct belief, o my brother,
    Read this book day’n night with devout attention!

    May Haqq bless Abû Hanîfa’s soul with compassion,
    For he’s guided us to Qur’ân’s way of salvation!

    Man can create none, do not believe the Shiite!
    Worse for the Wahhâbî; hold the Sunnî profession!

    Paradise’n Hell are now, tawba is possible,
    The sinful will be saved by way of intercession.

    Do not attach thyself to the world, life’s but a fast stream;
    Happiness forever is in Islam’s instruction.

    First learn the ’ilm al-hâl, and teach your child;
    Otherwise, insufferable will be your frustration!

    Look’n see how slyly the enemies strive;
    Lose no time in working for Islam’s promulgation!

    Communists deceive the youth with lies to destroy Islam;
    Wake up, O young man, rid thyself of that inaction!

    The Muslims also are mostly ensnared by heresies;
    Off the right path, qibla as is their direction.

    Without learning the ’ilm al-hâl, one cannot be immune.
    Non-Sunnî is in unbelief or aberration!

    Help the people who spread the correct knowledge!
    Be blessed with Jihâd at the cost of thine possession!

    Did Rasûlullah ever pause, or did his Sahâba sleep?
    Each of them was a hero in Islam’s expansion!

    You, too, should work hard, for hard the enemies work;
    To ruin Islam they attack from every direction.

    Do not malign the Sahâba, appreciate them all!
    Qur’ân witnesses to their common affection!

    Abû Bakr the highest, then come ’Umar; ’Uthmân; Alî;
    Love Mu’âwiya, too; he wrote the Qur’ân’s version!

    Our Rabb is not material; He’s free from time’n place;
    He is in no substance, should be Muslim’s conviction!

    He neither needs creatures, nor has a likeness;
    He creates all, and sustains all creation.

    Good, bad; belief, disbelief; matter, power, energy; He makes all;
    Far beyond man is the business of creation!

    Everyone He’s given will’n wisdom, and guidance as well.
    Any good wished will attain Rahmân’s[89] creation.

    First put your belief right, and observe the injunctions;
    Whoever leaves Islam never attains salvation!

    It’s ever the rule: You reap what you sow;
    To count on the wheat unsowed brings frustration!

    Out of seventy-three groups, Sunnîs, alone, head for salvation;
    It is them who showed us Rasûlullah’s direction!
