SECDEDEN GAYRI
(English translation of the poem)

 

 ONLY PROSTRATION ON KNEES

 

For years of acquiring knowledge and skills
And listening verses of prayers in tears
I wondered, what helps to find Him, which means?
Then I had reply – the prostration on knees…
 

Not alms giving, nor sacrificing on meals
Not even applauds and trust-funding lists
No one of them might guarantee being freed
from Hellfire, only prostration on knees…

To hover on wings of divine admiration
Or suddenly rise over skies in a passion
To extinguish thirst by qawsar-spring, permission
is bestowed for those, who bend knees in prostration…

The best of my years were exhausted in feasts
I searched a relief in the pleasure of beasts
“Please, lend me your hand, I’m astray in a mist”
“No exit”, I heard, “but prostration on knees”.

I’ve found out two enemies in the World
The first one is devil, and second – man’s fault
I thought to myself: “should I fight them with sword?”
“That won’t help”, I heard, “without worshiping Lord”

A luxury, hand-graved tombstone of marble
He was very rich, but today he is humble
I asked the angels: “what helps here in a trouble?”
“All useless”, was answer, “except sajda
[1], brother”

Observing the stars and the moon yasjudan
[2]
I asked if they ever diverged from Islam
All of the Universe then replied as one:
“We are all His servants, how could that been done?”

I’ve set for a trip towards merciful desert
My eyes were astonished by Arafat’s resort
I asked Safa, Marwa, and Qaaba
[3] of ascent
To Him, “only way”, they said, “sajda is present”

Cengiz Numanoğlu

[1] Prostration, the act of worshipping Allah

[2] Prostrating, making sajda to Him

[3] Safa, Marwa and Qaaba – are sacred places in Macca, some rituals of pilgrimage are bound with them
