Ranaei Family Ensemble: Bani Adam

Peace, one and all…


As we move from Thursday into Friday, here is a beautiful poem by Saadi, set to beautiful music by the Ranaei Family ensemble.

Dem-i Hazret-i Mevlana

بنی آدم اعضای یک پیکرند
که در آفرينش ز یک گوهرند
چو عضوى به درد آورد روزگار
دگر عضو ها را نماند قرار
تو کز محنت دیگران بی غمی
نشاید که نامت نهند آدمی


Bani Aadam `aazaye yek pigarand
Keh dar aafarinesh ze yek guharand

Cho `ozvi be dard aavarad rozigaar
Degar ozvahaa raa namaanad qaraar

To kaz mehnate digaraan bi ghami
Nashaayad ke naamat nahand Aadami


The children of Adam are limbs of each other,
Having been created of one essence.
When the calamity of time affects one limb
The other limbs cannot remain at rest.
If you have no sympathy for the troubles of others,
You are unworthy to be called by the name of Human.


Ask olsun! May love increase!
