ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS OF
SOME COUPLETS AND QUATRAINS


İnsan doğmak, insana ilâhi bir ihsandır;
İnsan doğan kaç kişi, ölürken de insandır?

Being born as  human being is divine gift and glory
How many of the people may die as human truly ?

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Korkulardan korkanı, korkular er geç bulur;
Ancak Allah’tan korkan, korkulardan kurtulur..


If you run from the fears, fears will reach you one day
Only fear of Sustainer will drive fears away

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rütbe var; yazılır, mezar taşına;
Zaman sellerinde, aşınır gider.
Rütbe var; yazılır cennet arşına;
Sonsuzdan sonsuza, taşınır gider..


There some ranks of the people that written on the gravestone,
With time of floods they’re damaged without any trace
There some ranks of the people that  written on the heaven throne,
They do not end forever, and never will erase

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Ne tıbbî mûcizeler, ne estetik savaşlar;
İnsanda ölümsüzlük, ancak ölümle başlar..


Miracles in medicine can not give you endless breath ,
Eternity of your being begins only after death

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ölmeden ölene, ölüm bir şölen;
Ölümü öldürür, ölmeden ölen..

For those who die before decease, the death is real holiday
The one who dies before decease, will kill the death and won't decay

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sefâdan vazgeçer, vefâ seçerdi;
İnsan düşünseydi Hakk'a visâli..
Ömür, bin yıl bile olsa geçerdi;
Kor üstünde kar tanesi misâli...

Human would leave diversion and choose the faith at last
If he would think
  of his Lord, he would leave bad desire
Even if life lasts ages, time would still pass so fast
Just like a snow flake melting over the fire.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mal, mülk, para tutkusu, nefsine gelse de hoş;
Unutma ki ey insan! Tabutların içi boş.. 

Even though man is fond of money, goods and property,
He should never forget that  he will find coffin empty      

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ey insan ! Yalnızlıktan şikâyet etme sakın;
Öyle bir Dost'un var ki; şah damarından yakın

O Human ! Thinking that you are lonely, don’t make any complain !
Your Great Lord is nearer to you even than your jegular vain

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

İnsan olmak istersen, gaflet perdeni kaldır,
Beyni çöplük olanın, kokuşması doğaldır..

If you want to be a human, acquire just useful knowledge
It’s normal to smell rotten, for a brain fillled with garbage

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sende yoksa tefekkür, cehline akıl n'etsin?
Ne korkarsın ölümden? Sen ki zaten cesetsin !

Having no of contemplation, what can do for you your head?
Why are you afraid of dying, you're already corpse, you're dead !

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sanma ki; önünde, seçenekler çok,
Ya Kur’ân, ya hüsrân, üçüncüsü yok! 


Don’t think that in life your options are many
You may choose Quran, or you're loser plainly

----------------------------------------------------------

Kim istiyorsa eğer, iki cihanda felâh;
Aramasın dünyada, sabırdan başka silah.

Whoever wants success and salvation in two worlds,
Let him not search except “patience” and “salaat” words

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Bitmez bu kan, bu hüsran, görünüyor açıkça;
Dünya müslümanları, müslüman olmadıkça.

Bloodshed and deprivation won't ever stop indeed
Unless all Muslim brothers become Muslims in deed

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sen kendini gerçekten, istiyorsan tanımak,
Duvar aynası değil, Kur’ân aynasına bak..


If you want to recognize who you are in honest ways
Don't you stare then at the mirror, look at Quran, what it says?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

İnsanca yaşamanın “düşünmektir” kıstası,
Kabristana yakışır, içi boş kafatası. 

For living as a human we should use our brains
Because an empty skullbone should only lie in graves

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Şeytanla her savaşa, hiç korkusuzca varım,
İnsan şeytanlaşırsa, işte ondan korkarım.

I am ready for all of fightings bravely against Satan
But I fear of that human that turns to the Demon

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Kur’ân eczanesinde, her derde devâ vardır;
Son kullanma tarihi: Kıyâmete kadardır…


In Quran drugstore there are all kinds of cures and way
It won't ever expire, until the Judgement Day
