The Ignorant Fool

14 Sep

أعرض عن الجاهل السفيه
فكل مـا قـال فهـو فيـه
ما ضر بحر الفرات يومـاً
إن خاض بعض الكلاب فيه

Pay no heed to the ignorant fool
for everything he says, is in him
What harm could befall the Euphrates River, one day
if a bunch of dogs swam therein.

– Diwaan Imaam ash-Shafi`i.
