The Scholar and the Dervish

on

This is the recorded interchange of questions and answers of an‘alim (a scholar in Islam) and a dervish:

– No one has ever seen you pray!
– That is true!

– You do not wear a patched cloak, like the other Sufis…
– No, I don’t!

– You do not use a rosary to remember God…
– True!

– You do not visit Sufi centres…
– No, I don’t!

– You do not discuss spirituality, you do not quote from the classical masters, and you do not have a beard!
– True, true, true!

– Can you tell me why?
– Because it would interfere with my spiritual activities.

    You hide & we seek you,
    O mystic we do recognize you.
    A diamond shines even in dark,
    His address in itself is a landmark!

    The capital of sorrow
    I will not give easily from my hand.
    I will not turn my heart from the
    Beloved till I meet my end;
    From the friend
    the relic of pain that I have got,
    I will not exchange
    in return for thousands of remedies
    for that pain of the friend.

    O Lord thee created Mohammed (PBUH),
    From a Source of Divine Light💡.
    O Mohammed thee established Islam,
    To thy religion our Sincere ‘ Salaam’.
    O Islam truly hats off to thee,
    Thou nurtured many mystic’s dream.

    O Mystics thou have a sound mind,
    Why do you serve intoxicating wine?
    What’s special about Mystic Tavern of His,
    Each day Visiting His inn, for no post to miss.

    O Mystic why this Silence?
    Pain of separation creats voilence.
    None to hear this heart’s chaos,
    In Intoxication through thy Tavern,
    Silently allow my days, to pass.

    Een rouwende toegewijde.

    O you hide & you really do hide,
    Destroying devotee’s false pride.
    But the scent of this Darweesh,
    Shall surely spread and flourish.

    O dear don’t you please vanish,
    For my ego you need to planish.
    Crush this ego into many pieces,
    Love for thee seldom decreases.

    Go away O ruthless Darweesh,
    Hide in some western far off place.
    Eyes have captured thy pretty face,
    Both day & night I pass in disgrace.

    O Beloved thy separation,
    Is nothing less than cremation.
    While all you do is hide & hide,
    Beaware of the heart, wherein you reside!

    In thy remembrance,
    I come with eyes full of tears,
    And from the wine of fondness I come,
    intoxicated & lost, with no fears;
    Since the time of separation passed away,
    Even then,towards Thee I come
    with a head white with years.

    Liefde.
