By Imām Al Shāfi’īe (may Allāh have mercy on him)

Translated by Imam Mazhar Mahmood

بقدرِ الكدِّ تكتسبُ المعالي

Heights of success are attained, in accordance to one’s efforts

ومن طلب العلا سهر الليالي
Whoever seeks to succeed should  burn the midnight oil

ومن رام العلا من غير كد
One who desires success without efforts

أضاع العمر في طلب المحال
Is (carelessly) wasting their life to attain the impractical

تروم العز ثم تنام ليلا
You seek honour yet sleep all night

يغوص البحر من طلب اللآلي
One who desires pearls must dive in the depth of oceans
