بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


To be real on this path you must be humble–
If you look down at others you’ll get pushed down the stairs.

If your heart goes around on high, you fly far from this path.
There’s no use hiding it–
What’s inside always leaks outside.

Even the one with the long white beard, the one who looks so wise–
If he breaks a single heart, why bother going to Mecca?
If he has no compassion, what’s the point?

My heart is the throne of the Beloved,
the Beloved the heart’s destiny:
Whoever breaks another’s heart will find no homecoming
in this world or any other.

The ones who know say very little
while the beasts are always speaking volumes;
One word is enough for one who knows.

If there is any meaning in the holy books, it is this:
Whatever is good for you, grant it to others too–

Whoever comes to this earth migrates back;
Whoever drinks the wine of love
understands what I say–

Yunus, don’t look down at the world in scorn–

Keep your eyes fixed on your Beloved’s face,
then you will not see the bridge
on Judgment Day.

Yunus Emre

    Assalaam Alaikum brother KhalilAllah,

    I apologize for the delayed response to your comment (I didn’t think to check back on the post). I would love to read some online material by the poets/authors you’ve mentioned. JazakAllah khair for offering to share the PDF links!

    And I will certainly keep you in my du’as. Please keep me in yours as well.

    These words greatly inspire me.
