فقه در زیر درخت

last night we were sitting with a couple of friends in the backyard lawn of the bbq-tonight restaurant which is fast becoming the place to meet in this part of town. somebody mentioned that their organization is working on raising awareness among women, and as part of this, plan to raise awareness of fiqah or islamic jurisprudence to get women to know their rights under islam. and i was reminded of this snippet of sohrab’s poem:

من به اندازه یک ابر دلم می گیرد
وقتی از پنجره می بینم حوری
دختر بالغ همسایه
زیر کمیاب ترین نارون روی زمین
فقه می خواند

از سهراب سپهری

such a beautiful image. striking in its simplicity and depth. so sohrab:
neighbor’s pubescent girl, aptly named hoorie (after the promised virgins of paradise,) studying islamic jurisprudence sitting under one the rarest of earth’s narawans (i don’t know what that tree is – spruce? poplar? cedar?) and our poet’s heart grows heavy as a cloud at spying this from his window.
