Gazal 5 (Chahal Asrar) Poem by Mohammad Younus

Gazal 5 (Chahal Asrar)

If you seek comfort and contentment...
...come on, know the secret of the Love's pain...
...and be intimate and confidant with Him!
If you seek wealth eternal...
...then sacrifice your life at the altar of His Love.

In the journey of Love...
...the essential travel things that you need...
...include Self-sacrifice and Notoriety
If you are a traveller on this road...
...then, you must arrange these essentials;
(Only then can you reach your beloved's home)

You boast of your body and soul
Which is like a wagtail - the small bird -
That feeds on cheap chickpeas;
Know you must that you cannot ride...
...on a wagtail to reach your beloved's home;
(Your body and soul is not worth even the chickpeas...
...that the wagtail is given to eat)
Do not be like a wagtail!
Rather be like a hawk if you want to reach...
...the threshold of your beloved's home

How long will you behave like women...
...who do their make-up and facelifting...
...in order to show of their ornaments and beauty?
Give up observing rituals, customs, and traditions...
...that you perform to show of your spirituality!
Walk along the path of bravehearts..
...and be intimate with the people of Love!

On the path of Love:
The soul and body are obstacles...
...and the belief and the disbelief are the veils;
Give up everything and be...
...confidant and intimate with your beloved!
(Annihilate yourself in His Love to be one with Him)

How long like a vulture will you remain...
...attached to the carcass of your body?
For the satisfaction of your soul...
Fly higher and higher for a moment...
...to reach your beloved's home.

You're like a hawk, basically created...
...under the divine plan of Providence...
...to freely fly high and higher...
...in the heights of divine majesty;
But, as your bad luck would have it...
...you got trapped in the net...
...when you flew down to earth...
...to pick your bait;
Give up the net and bait, and get free!
And fly to your beloved's home...
...to live with him again happily!

If you are the Anqa - phoenix - of the Mount Qaf...
...then open up the wings of your determination...
...to fly in the infinity, and, thus, be...
....a co-flyer with the purest lovers

Alaie, you are yourself the lock on this door;
The key to open this lock is the Humility;
You can sit on the Throne of Honour...
...provided you have got humility...
...and the feeling of being meek and weak...
....before His omnipotency!
