O People Gone for Hajj
O people gone on Hajj Pilgrimage
Where are you? Where are you?
The Beloved is right here
Come on back, come on back!
Your Beloved is your next-door neighbor
Why are you wandering in the Arabian deserts?
If you take a really good look at
Beloved’s faceless Face,
You will get to see that
The Master, the Holy House, and the Kaaba
Are all in reality You!
You’ve already journeyed ten times
On the path of Hajj Pilgrimage
To visit that Holy House.
Also climb up to the roof of your own house
That Holy House is indeed magnificent
You’ve already talked about its many wonders.But from the Master of that House,
Did you get its correct address?
Where is your flower bouquet
If you’ve seen that Divine Garden?
Where is your soul’s pearly essence
If you now belong to the Ocean of God?
Well, despite of it all, May all your sufferings turn into your treasures.
Alas, you are always veiling your own treasures.
