Abu-Bakr Muhammad ibn Yahya ibn al-Sayigh, known as Ibn Bajjah, was an Andalusian-Arab Muslim polymath: an astronomer, logician, philosopher, physician, physicist, psychologist, poet and scientist. He was known in the West by his Latinized name, Avempace. He was born in Zaragoza in what is today Spain and died in Fes, Morocco in 1138. Avempace worked as vizir for Abu Bakr ibn Ibrahim Ibn Tîfilwît, the Almoravid governor of Saragossa. Avempace also wrote poems (panegyrics and 'muwasshahat') for him. Avempace joined in poetic competitions with the poet al-Tutili. He later worked, for some twenty years, as the vizir of Yahyà ibn Yûsuf Ibn Tashufin, another brother of the Almoravid Sultan Yusuf Ibn Tashufin (died 1143) in Morocco.

His philosophic ideas had a clear effect on Ibn Rushd and Albertus Magnus. Most of his writings and book were not completed (or well organized) because of his early death. He had a vast knowledge of Medicine, Mathematics and Astronomy. His main contribution to Islamic Philosophy is his idea on Soul Phenomenology, but unfortunately not completed.

His beloved expressions were Gharib and Mutawahhid, two approved and popular expressions of Islamic Gnostics.

Though many of his works have not survived, his theories on astronomy and physics were preserved by Maimonides and Averroes respectively, which had a subsequent influence on later astronomers and physicists in the Islamic civilization and Renaissance Europe, including Galileo Galilei. read more

Hey friend your misery bewilders me
How come you're never satisfied or gratified
Four walls and, a roof, electricity,
Stable mind, wife and child,
Hot and cold water to run anytime.

But still you, whine
I want more
Some would give anything to live like you
Shame your mind, don't shine
Like your possessions do.

Whining, complaining all the time,
Don't see any rain on you
I was told as a child,
I want more never gets
Learn to count your blessings

Show me a man without guilt
Or a soul that ain't lied
You don't know what ya got
Open your eyes, look around
Ain't got any reason to be down

Friend what is it that you seek
What is it that you try to find
Someday I hope you realized
It shined in you all the time.

Hills to climb, sights to see, seas to cross,
Friends to make, hands to shake, the world is yours,
Foods to taste, sounds to hear, love to feel,
Seeds to sew, things to know, fish to reel,
Space to quiz, stones to lift, life's a gift

Its all inside of you, the way to find it? Trust in your Allah (swt) unconditionally,
All will be well. Ameen.

A woman was letting her husband have it with just a touch more venom than usual, saying, 'You're an idiot. You have always been an idiot. You'll always be an idiot. If they had an idiot contest, you'd come in second.'

'Why would I come in second?' asked the husband.

'Because you're an idiot!
