A call to travel- A Poem by Imam As-Shafi’ee

There is no rest in residence for a person of culture
and intellect, so travel and leave where you’re residing!
Travel! You will find a replacement for what you have left.
And strive! The sweetness of life is in striving!

I’ve seen that water stagnates if still
becomes pure if it runs, but not if it doesn’t flow
If the lion doesn’t leave his den he cannot hunt,
and the arrow will not strike without leaving its bow

If the sun stood still in its heavenly course
then people, Arab and non-Arab, it would bore
Gold dust is as the earth where commonly found,
and in its land, oud  is but another wood in store

If one travels, he becomes sought out
If one travels , he is honored like gold.
