Poor of the heart that does not tremble with fear when being told
the torments of the hellfire.
Poor of the heart that does not long for the delicacies of Paradise.
We run after the pleasures of this world, ready to crush each other’s life.
We envy the belongings of our sisters, brothers or neighbours and wish
for them to live in misfortune.
Less people want to live within the “jail” of marriage.
Many humans prefer to be “free” living a libertine life.
Less women want to become mothers for fear it might disturb their quiet life
and alter their “perfect” body.
This world is a “heaven” for selfish people and a “torment” for the good ones
