With respect to our ongoing series on Shaykh Aḥmad Ibn Zayniddīn al-Aḥsāʾī: One of our readers asked for the Arabic original of the two poems given by Imām Ḥasan (ʿA) to al-Awḥad. Here is a display version, in both JPG and PDF format.


UPDATE (April 17, 2015): As some of you have requested it, here is the raw utf-8 text that was used in the display versions, plus some asterisks for structure here. The file uses some uncommon vowel characters and so will look odd in a few places because the current webfont does not support them. There is nothing wrong with the text itself: You can select and copy the utf-8 text to any good editor and switch to the font of your choice (e.g., ALM Fixed). This will be fixed in a future update so that it looks better in this post as well, inshāʾa Ãllāh.

لقد قال الامام الحسن بن عليّ بن أبي طالب ــ‌ع‌ــ في عالَم الطيف لبعض مواليه:

كُ‍‍نْ عَنْ أُمُوْرِكَ مُ‍عْ‍رِضَـــا  ***  وَ كِلِ ٱلْأُمُوْرَ‌‌ إِلَى ٱلْـــقَضَـــا

فَـــلَرُبَّمَـــا ٱتَّسَعَ ٱلْـــمَضــيقُ  ***  وَ رُ‌بَّمَـــا ضَــاقَ‌‌ ٱلْـــفَضَـــا

وَ لَـــرُبَّ‌‌ أَمْـــرٍ مُـــتْعِـــبٍ  ***  لَكَ‌ فِيْ‌‌ عَوَاقِـــبِهٖ رِ‌‌ضَـــا

اَللّٰهُ يَـــفْعَـــلُ مَـــا يَشَـــاۤء  ***  وَ لَا تَـكُ‍‍ن‌ مُّتَـــعَرِّضَـــا

اَللّٰهُ عَـــوَّدَكَ‌‌ ٱلْـجَـــمِيْــلَ  ***  فَقِـــسْ عَلٰى‌‌ مَا قَـــدْ مَضَىٰ

و قال أيضًا ــ‌ع‌ــ:

رُبَّ‌‌ أَمْرٍ ضَاقَتِ ٱلنَّفْسُ بِـــهٖ  ***  جَاۤءَهَــا مِـنْ‌‌ قِبَــلِ ٱللّٰهِ فَرَجٌ

لَا تَكُن مِّن وَّجْهِ رَ‌‌وْحٍ آيِسًـــا  ***  رُبَّمَـــا قَدْ فُرِّجَتْ تِلْكَ ٱلــرُّتَـــجُ

بَيْـــنَمَا ٱلْمَـــرْءُ كَ‍‍ئِيْبٌ دَنِـــفٌ‌‌  ***  جَـــاۤءَهُ ٱللّٰـــهُ بِـــرَوْحٍ وَّ فَـــرَجٌ
