Safe Path - translation of a poem attributed to Imam Hussain

Safe Path - translation of a poem by Imam Hussain

Perform only those tasks which will take you towards freedom and salvation

Those tasks that you anticipate will help you achieve salvation with great pace and that will help you and rescue you from the austerities of the Day of Judgment

Purifying your soul of sins; doing good deeds to believers and having good intentions for relatives and those around you

Only these things can help you receive God’s mercy

If you think of doing good deeds all the time, salvation is yours. Otherwise you will have no sanctuary. [1]

فَلَيسَ تَنَالُ عَفوَ الله إلاّ

بِتَطهِيرِ النُّفُوسِ مِنَ المَعَاصِي

وَ بِرَّ المُؤمِنِينَ بِکُلِّ رِفقٍ

وَ نُصحٍ لِلأَداني وَالأَقَاصِي

وَ إن تَشدُد يداً بِالخَيرِ تُفلِح

وَ إن تَعدِل فَمَا لَکَ مِن مَنَاصِ

مسلک السلامة

عَلَيکَ مِنَ الأُمُورِ بِمَا يؤَدِّي

إلي سُنَنِ السَّلاَمِة وَ الخَلاَصِ

وَ مَا تَرجُوا النَّجَاةَ بِهة وَشِيکاً

وَ فَوزاً يومَ يوُخَذُ بالنَّواصِي
