A description of the experience
Yassawi – from HIKMET 10
Allah Almighty gave love to lovers,
My gratitude fanned the flames and scorched me, Yes, I.
The two worlds like dust before my eyes,
Vanish when Love enters, Yes, I.
Releasing soul's attachment the Lord alone remains,
Overflowing as a river bursts its banks,
Travelled to Lamakan through Maqam,
Rejecting worldly ways a hundred thousand times, Yes, I.
In the presence of the Lord, perfect mind is lost for words,
When raging love like illness cannot resist,
Like a moth unwitting, immolates itself,
I found these secrets through desire, Yes, I.
The path of Tariqat is filled with obstacles,
Lacking true love, survival is impossible,
Sleep day and night makes contemplation impossible,
Awake I was able to see His Face, Yes, I.
