One day the Holy Prophet to his companions appealed
All who have wealth should give some in God's cause
One hearing this command Umar rose in intense happiness
That day he had acquired several thousand dirhams1
He was saying to himself that certainly that day
He would excel Siddiq by far that day
At last he brought the wealth before the Holy Prophet
Starting the action is a prelude to the necessary sacrifice
The Holy Prophet asked him, O Umar!
To whom God's Love is the solace of the heart!
Have you kept anything for the family?
Muslim is responsible for family's rights
He exclaimed Half wealth is the son and wife's share
The rest is made a present to the Ummah in sacrifice
Soon after, that friend of prophethood also arrived
On whom the foundation of Love is established
That man of proved loyalty brought with him
Everything which is creditable in the world's eye
All that right hand possessed, in cash, kind, chattel
Beautiful horses, camels, mules and donkeys
The Holy Prophet said, You also need to care for the family
Replied that secret-keeper of Love and Fidelity
O you who give light to the eyes of the moon and the stars
Who was made the reason for creation of the universe
Lamp to the moth, flower to the nightingale is sufficient
For Siddiq only the Prophet of God is sufficient!
