O sleepy head!
Do not make haste for bed
But after Salatul Isha
Crave for even more Thawab (Reward)
And stand with me for a night prayer
O sleepy eyes!
Do not fail to realize
As your lids start to close
Your last breath may be near-just suppose!
Better then, to stand for the night prayer
O sleepy soul!
What burdens do you hold?
This longing for respite
To sleep all through the night
Your night prayer will revive you untold
O weary self!
You are bestowed with good health
You are passing through life
With! ! wealth and keen sight
Owe Allaah a little thanks then this night
O supple bed and carrier!
You stand as a barrier
Between me and my Lord
Your comfort stirs discord
Do not kindle your warm welcome for me!
I have preferred the hard floor
Therein lies comfort much more
On the dust hard ground
Allaah’s Nearness is found
How blessed is the nightly prostration!
