Saya Hanyalah Seorang hamba

a poem by Ibn Abdil Qawwiy
“ana al-‘abd – i am the servant”

i am the servant who has earned sins
and whose desires have prevented him from repenting
i am the servant who has become saddened, worried
and depressed by his mistakes

i am the servant whose pages have been written
a watcher was not feared therein
i am the sinning servant, i have disobeyed in secret
so what’s wrong with me now that i do not lament?

i am the spendthrift servant, my life is lost
i cared for neither my youth nor my old age
i am the servent, drowning in the depths of a sea
i scream, perhaps i’ll encounter One who will respond

i am the servant taken ill by sins
and i have indeed began to seek out who’ll cure me
i am the servant, the runaway, i have wronged myself
but i’ve shown up at Your door, repentant i am

lagu ini sangat berkait rapat dengan kita. saya sangat sedih mendengar lagu ini. walaupun lagu ini dinyanyikan dalam bahasa arab oleh Sheikh Misyari al-Afaasi, tetapi maksud dan erti lagu ini memang menusuk kalbu sesiapa pun yang mendengarnya. sedarlah yang kita hanya seorang hamba. tidak lebih dari itu. sedarlah wahai manusia. saya sarankan pembaca-pembaca semua mendengar dan menghayati lagu ini agar dapat menimbulkan rasa keinsafan pada diri untuk terus beramal soleh selama masih kita masih hidup. wallahu a’lam. anal-‘abdul lazi kasaaba zzunuuba, wa saddatuhul amaani a(n)yatuuba…
