Short lament on the grave of a young person. In Islam, one is not supposed to complain about death, as it is viewed as a natural process of life. The inscription reads:
I was young, living the passion of youth,
Striving to reach my goal in life.
When I was 13 years old, going on 14,
Cruel fate sent me to the grave.
My tragedy is written on my headstone and gravestone.
May my mother remember me and weep
Because I couldn't reach my aims in this world.
