Sister, Don't Be Discouraged

e encouraged that things, in time, will change...

Alaha Ahrar, Afghanistan. April 2009

Afghan woman, don't be discouraged, desperate. You are a champion
Even though they have kept you far from knowledge
Be a fighter, try to seek knowledge
So that you may be wise, knowing good from bad and friends from enemies
Life is worthless if there is no knowledge and skills
In reality all living beings are meant to learn
Even the Islamic faith has obligated learning for men and women
So that no one is left without knowledge of the world

Afghan maiden! Why be deprived of literacy? And why be hopeless your whole life?
You are no less in skills and intelligence than others
Learn from Malalais who are your kind
Their names shine eternally like the name of our country and land shines
Be determined, fear no difficulty, find your path!While the destination is far, you will reach the caravan
In the chosen path if you fall a hundred times, stand up again
Hopelessness and defeat are not the traits of a champion
Alaha is your companion in this battle
Dusk is not eternal, dawn draws nearer

It means that time is passing, and after the end of each darkness there is light.
Do not give up trying. At the end you will be more knowledgeable and reach your purpose.

-- افغانستان یک جوان نهایت فرزانه را در دامان پاک خویش پروریده است که سجیه الهه احرار میباشد. اما متاسفانه از این استعداد که عبارت از گنجینه ادب و ادبیات زبان دری فارسی بشمار میرود همه غافل است. بناً به صفت یک جوان افغان با تمامی افغانان همقطارم خواهشمندم که باید لقب ستاره افغان را برای این جوان با فهم و مایه افتخار افغانستان و افتخار زبان دری فارسی بدهیم. از لطف تان تشکر

-- Ms. Ahrar is a pride for our beloved Country Afghanistan. We want to especially thank her parents for raising such a wonderful daughter for our Afghanistan.
