Hajj ~ Blissful & Unforgettable

IN PRAISE OF THE LORD

Lord,
whose face is this
reflected in spirit’s mirror?
Such beauty painted
on the inner screen—
who is he?
Each atom
in all space
is filled…
Who transcends the galaxies,
shows himself in every molecule—who is he?
Sun
in the costume
of various specks of dust sparks forth various rays
of light at every moment—
who is he?
Outwardly
you appear in the meat
of our existence
but he who is hidden
in soul’s marrow—
who is he?
In soul’s fete
every now and again he sings
a new song, melodies of peace
touching the veils
of the people of the heart—
who is he?
He who manifests himself upon himself
makes love to himself in the name
of lovers—
who is he?
How many times, Mo’in
will you drag yourself and me between us?
He, the goal of I and Thou, is there—right there! Who is he?~ Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti r.a ~ Translation: Peter Lamborn Wilson and Nasrollah Pourjavady
