Men of Allah’s truth are an ocean

Men of Allah’s truth are an ocean,
Lovers must plunge into that sea;
The sages, too. should take a dive
To bring out the best jewellery.

We have turned into the
Wise Men To find pearls in the depths again;
Only the jeweller would know
How valuable those pearls might be.

Mohammed came to perceive Allah,
And saw Allah’s truth in his selfhood.
Providence exists everywhere
So long as there are eyes to see.

Books are composed by the sages
Who put black words on white pages;
My sacred book’s chapters are all
Written in hearts that love truly.
