What is to be done, Oh Muslims,
for I do not know my own identity.
I am neither a Christian nor Jew,
neither a Zoreastrian nor Muslim,
The placeless is my place; the traceless is my trace;
I have neither body nor life, for, my soul has dissolved
in the very soul of the Beloved.
Had I spent a single breath in my life without Thee;
For that time and that moment I’d be eternally ashamed
of myself. He is the First, He is the Last;
He is the Manifest; He is the Hidden.
Save “Oh ! He is” and “Oh ! He who is.” Nothing else I know.
