تو نے کیا جو کیا

تو نے کیا، جو کیا، پھر مجھے کہتا ہے کہ یہ تو نے کیا۔
تو جانتا ہے کہ میرے وجود میں کیا ہے اس کے سوا جو تو نے کیا۔
میرا وہ ہر عمل جو تو مجھے کرتے دیکھتا ہے، اے میرے خدا! یہ تو نے ہی تو کیا۔


— فتوحات مکیہ از شیخ اکبر محی الدین ابن العربی

The knot of persistence and stubborn insistence

You must strive to loosen the knot of persistence and stubborn insistence in your heart.

Ibn al-Arabi

God's Mercy embraces everything

God appeared to me in the inmost heart of my being and said to me: "Make known to My servants that which you have verified of My generosity... Why do My servants despair of My Mercy when My Mercy embraces everything?

— Futuhat al-Makkiyya

I know not

I clung to the one I love so passionately,
though I know not how,
nor do I know for certain
who it is that says, "I know not."

— Futuhat al-Makkiyya, Traslated by R.W.J. Austin

The Slave of Passion

I am the slave of passion and the slave of the Beloved.
The fire of passion burns my heart
And the One I love is in my mind.
Passion has seized hold of the reins of my heart
So wherever I turn my gaze Passion is facing me.

— Ibn al-Arabī

Retreat

I withdrew with He whom I love passionately,
and there was no one but us,
for if there had been another than me,
the retreat would not have been one.

— Futuhat al-Makkiyya
