Nami Danam ..

Shaykh Amir Khusro (qs)

“I am obsessed with the thought of him, I do not know where I have been.

So overwhelmed by being with him, I do not know where I have been.

I do not know what place it was, where I was the other night.

Ecstatic death surrounded me, where I was the other night.

Beauties from another world, like Cypress trees, with tulip cheeks.

Confounded and dumbfounded me, where I was the other night.

My rivals strain their ears, jealous that I’m close to him.

But I found it hard to speak, where I was the other night.

And God Himself presided there, in that place beyond all space.

Muhammad (s) was the burning flame, where I was the other night!

Muhammad (s) was the candle which burned in caves for forty years,
before bringing light to the world!”
