Shaykh Abu Sai’d al-Khayr (q.s.) on True Desire for the Friend

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Abu Sai’d al-Khayr (q.s.) said:

“When the desire for the Friend became real,
All existence fell behind.
The Beloved was not interested in my reasoning,
I threw it away and became silent.
The sanity I had been taught became a bore,
It had to be ushered off.
Insane, silent and in bliss,
I spend my days with my head,
At the Feet of my Beloved.”
