Decrees of God


This problem is not hard to solve
O man, endowed with insight great
Wh'r to obey dictates of God,
Or submit to decrees of Fate.

The Wheel of Fate spins hundred times
Within the twinkling of the eye
He, who follows freaks of Fate,
Anon is down and anon is high.

Herbs, vegetables and minerals alike
Adhere to what Fate pre-ordains:
But Muslim true obeys laws of God,
All else abhors and much disdains.
