There is no escaping this – dikt på engelska

 

dikt av Sidna Shaykh Dr Abdalqadir as-Sufi

***

This contains a great secret

Your belief about Him

Is the extent of your knowledge of Him

The extent of your knowledge of Him

Is the extent of your own nafs

The nature of your knowledge of Him

Is none other than your own

Knowledge of your nafs

Your limiting of Him is the

Bounding about of your own limitless nafs

Your Lord is to you what you are to Him

And there is no escaping this

You will not do other than you intend

You will not hold Him to be other than

What He holds you to believe

For you are confined in His confining of you

So let your belief in Him soar

Out of all association

That He may release you out of all forms

And all worlds

Realise that you know nothing of Him

Till you surrender your nafs to obliteration

And achieve the goal

***

Denna dikt gavs till Hajj Issa Bryce av Shaykh Dr Abdalqadir as-Sufi medan de bodde i zawiyyan Bristol Gardens på tidigt 70-tal.
