Abdullah Ansari of Harat : An Early Sufi master….translation by A. G. Ravan Farhadi
Pursiut of the friend
The heart left,
And the Friend is (also)gone.
I don’t know whether I should go after the Friend
Or after the heart!
A voice spoke to me:
“Go in pursuit of the Friend,
Because the lover needs a heart
In order to find union with the Friend.
If there was no Friend.
What would ( the lover ) do with (his) heart? “ this book is available through LINK+
