Verse by Hafiz Sherazi

حافظا خلدِ بریں خانۂ موروثِ منست

اندریں منزلِ ویرانہ نشیمن چہ کنم

(حافظ شیرازی)

A beautiful piece of poetry by Hafiz Sherazi, one of the best poet of Farsi(Persian) of all time. Hafiz talks about the short wordly life with comparison to ever-lasting after life.

He says, Paradise (Khild,Jannat) is my inherited house, and world (dunya) is my empty house. So, then why should I worry about building mansions like I’m going to live here forever, why not worry about and prepare for after life instead, by living a pious live.
