Written by Shaikh Zaid bin Muhammad bin Haadi al-Madkhali (may Allah have mercy upon him):

“Coffee Bunn is refreshing for the bodies
Its taste is enjoyable like dough and honey

The companion of life, in travel it is friendly
Like the whiff of musk when it spreads without a doubt

And [it is] the aspiration of the soul in a delightful morning
It pleases a companion when it is brought out at the time of leisure

O if one could have a cup [of coffee] made by an expert
To honor [with it] the guest who arrives and the one who is traveling

In every house it [coffee] has a mention and an excellence
It causes a companion to laugh with friendliness without any foolishness

It says ‘welcome’ and smiles for a long time
It repeats the welcome; of high value and example

There is no blame in it and from intoxication it is free
So drink it purely and do not fear any sicknesses”

[al-Mandhoomaat ul-Hisaan (pg. 343)]
