Okay, friend, to get to know his literary works better, the following admin presents 5 poems of Buya Hamka that you can listen to.


Heartfelt

Let me say what feels;
Then you are free to
give me any name you like;
I am a forgiver, and my
temper is easy, not difficult.
I just can't sell it;
Tell me, for God's sake.
Is there a heart that can be sold?



Cart Wheel

The fate of creatures is like a wagon wheel
It goes down and it goes up, one after another

That is the will of God Rabbul Izzati
We wait for the rate,
we hope and wait..



Enjoy Life

After getting bigger
in a small place no longer fits,
After the price increases,
people are reluctantto come to bid,
Complicatedcirculating in a small
place often meetdeceitful friends,
Like the waves in the
glass, you feel lonely,

Even if property and self-esteem
are destroyed, do not fall,
Even if the first construction
collapses, the workthat has just begun,

The hero of the mind is never
idle, solemn life continues,
Sometimes it goesdown, sometimes
it soars until itbreaks in the grave,

Hold thirst, endure hunger,
meet difficulty, be calm,
Begging for abstinence
from begging to lying down,
Only two places ask
first god second heart,
From life to death the human
scales are not the same,

Only one stop to nature after
death does not come back again,
Only people know who they
are after sleepingin a dark grave,

O myself, keep going on the
middle of the road, don't stop,
Before death, do not die the
pleasure of Allah,that is the goal,

As long as the body of the
angelic arenaappears with the devil,
There is praise there is
reproach passthe test who dares,

If your wealth is gone,
you are not called loss.
If you dare, there's no more
half of the wealth torn apart,

Destroy everything that
exists if you fallin self-respect,
Even the face isgloomy, the series
of inner lamentationsof sin are gone,

If your base of deceit
is not changed by rank,
The higher the levelat the level of the
original temperamentbecomes clearer,

When you become a hammer
dare to beat all out,
It's your turn to be the
foundation, holdthe blow, let it hit,

Any advice I accept
stating good thoughts stop,
for many people hate
that you may be at peace,

Holding my thoughts can't
be dull when I'm powerless,
Freedom to think bravely
dare to say what I believe,

Woe to me, curse me,
I will welcome my heart,
Some like it, some hate the
decoration of life in cyberspace



Let my body die now

Let my body die now
It's really hard to live life
Just imagining all my life
Let my grave be silent
Cucuk the pudding collar is dim
More comfortable sleeping in the grave



Only Heart

My salary is small
No other income
I don't know the book, I don't know
Corruption I'm not good at
I'm not good at business

You want a rug
To me it's just a pandan
mat where one can sleep
You want an atomic bag
To me only Matur camphor
You want a beautiful house
Enough furniture
Look! My hut is draining
You want a good car
I'm just a small person
What can I do
I only have one wealth, bro

Heart
An endless wide heart
Unsolved deep love


Bukittinggi, 1948
