The Poem of Ilbiri – On Leading a Purposeful Life – Part 1

Abu Isḥāq al-Ilbīrī al-Tujībī (d. 459 AH / 1067 CE) is said to have written this poem in response to a young man who had insulted him. Instead of replying in kind, which was the custom of poets, he decided to respond by providing the young man advice that would benefit him in this life and the next. This is part 1 of the explanation and commentary on this poem which will hopefully help you appreciate it even more insha'Allah. Amazon US: Amazon UK: Amazon DE: Amazon CA:
