Taliban bomb Tomb Pushto sufi poet Rehman Baba

rahmanbabaSow flowers so your surroundings become a garden
Don’t sow thorns; for they will prick your feet

If you shoot arrows at others,
Know that the same arrow will come back to hit you
.
Don’t dig a well in another’s path,
In case you come to the well’s edge

You look at everyone with hungry eyes
But you will be first to become mere dirt
.
Humans are all one body,
Whoever tortures another, wounds himself.
