Gazal 3 (Chahal Asrar) Poem by Mohammad Younus

Gazal 3 (Chahal Asrar)

The people of spiritual aesthetics find...
Peace of heart in agony and anguish...
...that they suffer in the way of Love;
They abhor the pleasures and delights...
...of the two worlds: Here and Hereafter.

Your Lovers do not buy even the Horis of paradise...
...even though these Horis are offered for peanuts;
They just need to hear about the secret of your beauty!

Those who are entraped in your Love...
...do not assosiate with people...
...who pursue this dirty world

The birds of Love do not pay any attention...l
...or show inclination to the mundane things;
Rather they chose to fly tirelessly up and up...
...in the extensive space of your Love...
...for sighting you there.

The lovers have come out of the strictures...
...of Khanqah life of dervishes;
... and they have settled on the holy pulpits...
...on the lofty gracious positions of Love.

When lovers come under the canopy of His majesty...
...they get free of the blandishments of their friend...
...and from the painful woes of others...
They are not infatuated by other than their beloved.

Love has consumed and destroyed the heart....
...and torn off the blanket of fame...
...and the veils of pretentious claim to Love

In the parliament of observation sit....
...as kings the lovers who offer...
...their life to you for a cup of Love

O Beloved! Alaia is grateful to thee...
...for the fragrance of the grief...
...that you have given to Him;
The wealth of this fragrant grief...
...You have blown in this flower...
...right on the day of Eternity
