Alone with the Alone
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Shaykha Rabi’ah al-‘Adawiyyah (q.s.) said:
“Brothers, my peace is in my aloneness.
My Beloved is Alone with me there, always.
I have found nothing in all the worlds,
That could match His Love.
This love that harrows the sands of my desert.
If I come to die of desire.
And my Beloved is still not satisfied,
I would live in eternal despair.
To abandon all that He has Fashioned
And hold in the palm of my hand,
Certain Proof that He Loves me
That is the name and the goal of my search.”
