The Pearl of the Heart
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
When your heart becomes the grave of your secret,
That desire of yours will be gained more quickly.
The Prophet (s.a.w.) said that anyone
Who keeps secret his inmost thought
Will soon attain the object of his desire.
When seeds are buried in the earth,
Their inward secrets become the flourishing garden.
Mawlana Jalal ad-Din ar-Rumi (q.s.), Matsnawi
