If you wish to love


Here is a beautiful song by one of the most notorious but famous singer Naifaru Dhohokko.
If you wish [to love], love within your heart’s capacity [And if you wish to hate,] hate [also] within your heart’s capacity. In love or hate, don’t be excessive.
Poor people with no property will become wealthier
The closest relatives may become the worst enemy
People become enemies, and friends distrustfully.
If you wish [to love], love within your heart’s capacity,
Even signs will indicate [apart from words and actions] what happens when one is [afflicted] with the sickness of hypocrisy. [Love or friendship cannot last if one is double-faced] [And as such], flattery, without doubt, cannot be considered as true love.
It is surprising indeed the way people conduct themselves these days, [that some resort to flattery and others fall for it]. In love or hate, don’t be excessive.
[And if you wish to hate,] hate [also] within your heart’s capacity
[Of course, even] good animals know who feed them.
[It is true that] for every good deed there must be a reward. [Therefore] good and righteous Muslims should take the initiative with compassionate heart.
If you wish [to love],love within your heart’s capacity [And if you wish to hate,] hate [also] within your heart’s capacity. In love or hate, don’t be excessive.
Who would seriously say that everything that glitters is pure gold?
Who would consider this world, a bed of roses to sleep in [forever]?
From every scene we are witness to, [we] have to remember the world’s imperfection.
If you wish [to love], love within your heart’s capacity [And if you wish to hate,] hate [also] within your heart’s capacity. In love or hate, don’t be excessive.
We are asleep, and we only wake up when we die.
When we do not know what to do or have nothing to do [i.e. when have lived our lives], we [die and] go to our graves.
We cannot take with us, a bed to sleep in or shining clothes from wherever we may be.
If you wish [to love], love within your heart’s capacity [And if you wish to hate,] hate [also] within your heart’s capacity. In love or hate, don’t be excessive.
If we act beyond our capacities, it leads to destruction.
You would hardly be scorned at if you are sincere.
Salvation depends on the good character [one possesses].
If you wish [to love], love within your heart’s capacity [And if you wish to hate,] hate [also] within your heart’s capacity. In love or hate, don’t be excessive
