Have mercy, just one glance, take the veil off your face
Have mercy, just one glance, take the veil off your face:
On your cheeks, the gleam of the full moon left its trace.
Your chastity is pure as cracked wheat and chickpeas,
Your forehead, your crescent brows teach the young moon grace
Which one of your beauties should the tongue talk about?
Allah, keep them off the evil eye in a safe place.
I couldn’t tell your height apart from a cypress,
I was in doubt–the rings on your ears made me guess.
Yunus saw Allah manifest Himself on your face;
You can’t be separated, you reveal Allah’s Grace.
