Gazal 1 (Chahal Asrar) Poem by Mohammad Younus

Gazal 1 (Chahal Asrar)

The captives to your love are free from avarice for wealth
The aspirants of your presence care not for paradise or self

The people of the Heaven take pride in serving...
...the faqirs - poor and destitute - of your Love Lane
The travellers on the path _ seeking to meet you...
... don't care a hoot for the two worlds - Here and Hereafter.

The angels envy the gnostics...
...who have known you
They wander in wilderness who were not...
...graced by you with your presence

The little aroma of your favour and grace۔۔۔
...filled with fragrance the nine heavens
Being confounded they take rounds of your portals

By your bliss the flamming fire of Abraham became a flower garden,
By your ire the smallest and despicable mosquito caused Nimrod's death

The nightingales in the garden of Unseen...
...sing hymns of your holiness;
In the garden of Union, they sing -
- under the shade of roses...
...He is One, He is alone! ! !

The parrots flying to your sublime throne...
...proclaim on their return to the earth:
O Eternal! O Lord of majesty and honour!
Glory be to Thee! We did not know you right! !

When the reflection of thy effulgent face...
...fell on the earth and water - Man -
... He was adorned with divine pulchritude! ! !

While making the sculpture of Man...
...thou put thy stamp on the Tablet of Unseen
(Declaring) this is the example from Him...
... who is peerless - without any example!
(Made Man as His vicegerent)

He who found a way to the dust of your threshold...
...was exalted to the highest position of honour;
The exegeses of His sublime attributes rendered...
...obsolete and absurd the sayings of the sages of old.

He who found a way to the dust of your threshold...
...was exalted to the highest position of honour;
The exegeses of His sublime attributes rendered...
...obsolete and absurd the sayings of the sages of old.

For the wounded Lovers...
...your bites rather have a healing touch...
...on their wounds of separation;
The flamming fires are like the water of life...
... for those thirsty for being in union with you.

Those killed by the sword of your Love...
....have obtained a life immortal;
Victimized by your hawk of sorrow...
...they have become kings of the realm Eternal! ! !

Those who drink the wine of your sorrow and grief...
...include Daud al-Ta'i, Ma'ruf al-Karkhi, Junaid al-Bagdadi;
Those who offer their lives at the altar of your door...
...include Ammar bin Yasir, Salman al-Farsi, and Bilal al-Habashi - the Companions Great!

The piercing pain caused in your way...
...is a medicine for every awakened soul;
The beauty of your perpetual zikr adorns...
...with beautiful ornaments every perfect seeker...
...endowed with supiritual powers great! ! !

Longing for Union with you...
...Alaia sacrificed even his life
Will this seemingly improbable desire...
...ever be fulfilled?
۔۔
