Top Quotes of Abo al-ʿAlāʾ al-Maʿarrī   almaary



Born in the city of Maʿarra during the Abbasid era, he studied in nearby Aleppo, then in Tripoli and Antioch. Producing popular poems in Baghdad, he nevertheless refused to sell his texts. In 1010, he returned to Syria after his mother began declining in health, and continued writing which gained him local respect.

Described as a "pessimistic freethinker", Al-Maʿarri was a controversial rationalist of his time, citing the reason as the chief source of truth and divine revelation. He was pessimistic about life, describing himself as "a double prisoner" of blindness and isolation. He attacked religious dogmas and practices, was equally critical and sarcastic about Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Zoroastrianism, and became a Deist and others say Atheist since he attacks God in many writings.

And then get nothing in return.”

Don't squander it, don't let your life
Be governed by what disturbs you.”

Them like tumblers; little pieces of glass.”

While a scoundrel's charity
Is carefully planned to please.”

Bear it a basin of clear water.
Don't trouble with the plight of other palms.”
