O you given to devotions at the two Harams, had you seen us
You would have considered your prayers as mere amusement and play
He who waters his cheeks with rolling tears
(Does he know that) with blood we dye our necks?
He who exhausts his horse in playful games
(Let him know that) our steeds tire themselves on the Day of Spoils
For you be the best of perfumes but for us
(is) sweet the (smell of the) dust rising from the earth.
By Sayyiduna 'Abdillah ibn al Mubarak to Sayyiduna Fudayl ibn 'Iyaad(also known as the worshipper of
the two holy sanctuaries- 'Abid al Haramayn)
