Song of the Red Dervish

From Iqbal:
“You created night, I made a candle
You created mud, I made life

You created deserts, mountains, and valleys
I made roads, gardens, and grew flowers

I am the one who makes a mirror out of a rock
I make a delightful drink from poison”

شب آفریدی، شمع آفریدم
خاک آفریدی، جام آفریدم
بیابان و کوه‌سار و راغ آفریدی
خیابان و گل‌زار و باغ آفریدم
آنم که از سنگ آیینه سازم
آنم که از زهر نوشینه سازم
اقبال لاهوری
