A Horse Is Needed First – Magtymguly Pyragy

A Horse Is Needed First
For a young man to earn fame,
A horse is needed first.
To duly welcome guests,
Kind-heartedness is needed first.
A brave man is needed to tolerate sufferings,
A horse is needed to pierce an armoured coat;
To treat people to plenty of dishes,
A welcoming soul is needed first.
Give up all your unrealistic wishes,
There isn’t any benefit from wealth.
If time will be against the halal,
The wisdom of the saint is needed.
If you intend to serve God,
To understand the Prophet’s path,
To please the souls of dervishes,
Generosity is needed first.
Magtymguly, he is a poor man;
Everything happens according to God’s will,
No matter how poor or rich, to those who come,
His welcome is needed first.
