Do Not Grieve At My Death by Al-Ghazaalee

Do Not Grieve At My Death!

{Al-Ghazaalee said:-}

“Say to my friends, when they look

upon me Dead.

Weeping for me and mourning me

in sorrow.

Do not believe that this corpse is myself  !

In the name of Allaah,

I tell you, it is not I.

I am a spirit {!!!}

And this is nothing but flesh !

It was my abode and my garment

for a time.

I am a pearl which has left its shell.

I am a bird, and this body

was my cage.

I have now flown forth and it is left

as a token.

All praise be to Allaah,

....Who has now set me free !

[from the shackles of life].

Think not that death is death.

No.....! is [the beginning of a new] life.'

A Lil Note :-

 There are many Metaphors used in this passage of-

Al-Ghazaalee's -----
