One night in a vision, I saw a morning star,
Asking the stars if they saw man ever awake.
Mercury Said, ‘Destiny has wisely decreed,
That this impish trouble maker should always be asleep.’
Satan replied ill disdain ‘Let us mind our business;
Thus night-blind insect is beneath our contempt.’
The full moon said, ‘He is a star of the earth;
You appear by night, and he appears by day;
‘This handful of dust, when keeping awake at night,
Is loftier than the galaxies in heaven;
‘He has a beatific light Concealed in his soul—
A light that will eclipse the brightest stars and planets.’
Then came the echoing thunder of the sound of azan-
The thunder which gives shivers to mountains’ hearts.
