Mawlana ar-Rumi (q.s.) on Seeking the Beloved

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Mawlana Jalal ad-Din ar-Rumi (q.s.) wrote:

“In truth, everything and everyone,
Is a shadow of the Beloved.
Our seeking is His Seeking.
Our words are His Words.
We search for Him here and there,
While looking right at Him.
Sitting by His side, we ask,
‘O Beloved, where is the Beloved?’”
