Rumi

Love is my religion and my faith

Only you
I choose among the entire world.
Is it fair of you
letting me be unhappy?
My heart is a pen in your hand.

It is all up to you
to write me happy or sad.
I see only what you reveal
and live as you say.

All my feelings have the color
you desire to paint.
From the beginning to the end,
no one but you.

Please make my future
better than the past.

When you hide I change
to a Godless person,
and when you appear,
I find my faith.

Don’t expect to find
any more in me
than what you give.

Don’t search for
hidden pockets because
I’ve shown you that
all I have is all you gave.

Translated by Nader Khalili

  1. عندنا لا يستطيعُ إنسانٌ أن يغدو مسلمًا دُفعة واحدة، يُسْلِمُ ثم يُسْلِمُ من جديد، وفي كلِّ مرّة يخرجُ شيءٌ من الهوى إلى أن يكتمل.
    [مقالات شمس تبريزي].

  2. الأرواح السجينة في الماء والطين، عندما تتحرر من الماء والطين تغدو مسرورة القلوب.
    وتغدو راقصة في هواء عشق الحق، وتصبح كوامل مثل قرص البدر.
    بل إن أجسامها لتغدو راقصة، فلا تسل عن الأرواح!
    وأما مصدر بهجة الروح فلا تسل عنه!

  3. .الرّوح في أصلها إلهية، وقد كانت في البدء متّحدة مع الحقیقة العظمی؛
    وفي ذلك يقول مولانا: كنّا جوهرًا واحدًا؛ مثل الشّمسِ..
    كنّا بلا عیبٍ
    وكنّا في صفاء الماء.
    وقد حجبت‌ الشمس الإلهیة نفسها عن الإنسان حتی‌ ینجلی الموجود الخالص في المعدوم،
    إذ …أن الشيء لا ینجلي إلا فی ضده.
    فالنور ینجلي في الظلام‌ والوجود في المعدوم.
    وعلی تلك المقاییس یری‌ مولانا أن علی الإنسان أن یصقل روحه‌ من صدأ الهوی
    وحب النفس حتی تعكس صورة الله كالمرآة الصافیة،
    ولذلك وجب علی الإنسان‌ أن یتجمّل بالصّبر ویؤدّب نفسه ولا ینفك عن‌ الجهاد حتی یتطهّر

  4. I have lived on the lip of insanity. Wanting to know reasons. Knocking on a door, it opens. I have been knocking from the inside.

  5. If you can’t smell the fragrance
    Don’t come into the garden of Love.
    If you’re unwilling to undress
    Don’t enter into the stream of Truth.
    Stay where you are.
    Don’t come our way.

  6. The expression of letter ‘WaW’; which is in reference to Al-Wadoud..
    “The Loving”..
    The symbol is sufi way of ‘balance/harmony’.

    Also single “WaW” represents Mevlana’s sitting position..
    Lot of meanining isnt it?
    I heard a story of A wise man mentioned in the Qur’an who place his head down in front of a “WaW”..
    Lot to talk about Adil, but the core is “LoVE”..
    It is said ‘ if the “Alif” is key to the universe, the “WaW” is the universe itself..’

  7. تِ كنزَك، ولا تتحايلْ، لأنّك لن تنجو
    بالمضمضة والمصلّى والذّكر والزُّهْد والصلاة.
    ـ أتسرق، ثم تجلس في زاوية المسجد قائلاً:
    «إنّني جنيدُ الزمان، بايزيد التضرّع»؟
    ـ أعِدِ القماشَ، وعندئذٍ قدّمْ زُهدَك؛
    لا تقدّم أعذارًا ضعيفة وتُدمْدم.
    ـ أصمُتْ عن العُذْرِ، لأنه في هذا المقام لا يشتري الرّجالُ
    حبّةً واحدةً بالتزوير والحِيَل البارعة.
    تمسَّكْ بأذيالَ إقبال شمس تبريز،
    لكي يظفر كمالُك من كُمّه بطِراز.

    مولانا جلال الدّين الرومي.

  8. Hardship may dishearten at first,
    but every hardship passes away.
    All despair is followed by hope
    all darkness is followed by sunshine.

  9. Come again, please, come again,
    Whover you are.
    Religious, infidel, heretic or pagan.
    Even if you promised a hundred times
    And a hundred times you broke your promise,

    This door is not the door,
    Of hopelessness and frustration.
    This door is open for everybody.
    Come, come as you are.

  10. Dance, when you’re broken open.
    Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off.
    Dance in the middle of the fighting.
    Dance in your blood.
    Dance when you’re perfectly free

  11. I cannot sleep when I am with you,
    Because of your love.
    I cannot sleep without you,
    Because of my screaming and yelling.
    I am awake on both night,
    But what a difference in between.

  12. There was a dawn I remember
    when my soul heard something from your soul.
    I drank water from your spring
    and felt the current take me in.

  13. Inside the great mystery that is;
    We don’t really own anything..
    What is this competition we feel then;
    Before we go,, one at a time, through the same gate..?
