The sky was overcast.
The weather was nice.
And I walked to a garden.
When I reached the garden.
The pleasant breeze made my heart rejoice.
The flowers were blooming by me.
I sat down by the flowers.
And lay down to rest under the flowers.
So I smelled the soil.
It was fragrant.
I said to it,
Why was the fragrance coming from you?
It said that since I had been under the influence of flowers۔
The scent of the flowers had settled in me.
Therefore I was fragrant.
Just as the company of flowers made the soil fragrant, so the company of good people makes a person good.
~ Muhammad Ishaq Abbasi
