Al-Halim

Forbearance to the poor
extends to more than kindness
when offering a few coins to a beggar

Poverty correlates with social division
where a social underclass are
denied the right to share in common joy

Stop acting like vain despots
conspicuous in your wealth and power!

You crush the spirit of others who are a different
while your own soul shrivels!

The self-respect of the stranger
who depend on Allah
is better than the charity the wealthy give to the needy
