    The Golden Ones

    M. Fethullah Gulen

    Overflowing with eternal inspirations
    In company of al Khadr, plunging into secrets

    Brilliant young people with countenances of gold
    Surrounded by descending sparkling lights

    Enraptured with the heavenly potion imbibed
    With eyes revealing the secret attained

    Their stormy vigor never exhausted
    With hearts of steel, never afraid or shrinking

    The entire world knows them, lauding their lands and towns
    conquering charm mysteriously marks their faces

    Equivalent to a genius, each brilliant mind
    Waiting for a blessed dawn,
    A dawn whose rooster has crowed
