“Look upon those who rest in graves,
how they amassed wealth, how they built lofty buildings.
How high must their hopes be? But in vain. Their wealth has vanished,
the buildings are rubble. Why do you not learn from these things?”

~Imam Ghazali (ra)

  1. Well, Ghazali certainly had many examples around in ancient Persia, where so many ruins of the past left great monuments, and tombs, made to preserve their fame, and memory, some of who ironically we haven’t being able to translate yet, therefore remain unknown ! :-)
