Story Of Imam Shafi'i Rahimullah Aleyh
These are the lyrics:
shakautu ila Waki` su'a hifdhi
wa arshada-ni an tark al-ma`asi,
wa akhbara-ni bi anna ilman nur,
wa nur Allah la yu`ta al-`as.
The great Imam ash-Shafi', he went to his teacher Waki`
Complaining about the weakness of his memory.
He told him, 'abandon rebellion, for knowledge is a light
And the light of Allah is not bestowed upon a rebel.
