At a time when the tongue of songs grows mute and the musician becomes sleepy,
At a time when the Imam brings his faith,At a time when the musicians lights up the night with the rubab and sleeps in ignorance,
At a time when the breeze joins in the call for prayer,

At a time when the sparrows sit in line on the mosque’s tree,
At a time when the child arrives with the Qur’an in order to learn it,

Some will keep their faith in the darkness of this test.
Some lose their faith and bring loss upon themselves.

~ Pashto Poem by Abdul Hai Mutma’in (Taliban former minister of Information and Culture)
