O breeze! turn towards Medina (and) from this well-wisher recite the Salaam.
Turn round the king of the prophets (and) with the utmost humility recite the Salaam.
Sometimes pass the gate of mercy (and) with the gate of Gabriel rule the forehead.
Salaam to the prophet of God (and) sometimes recite Salaam at the gate of peace.
Put with all respect the head of faith on the dust there.
Be one with the sweet melody of David and be acquainted with the cry of anguish.
In the assembly of the prophets recite verses from the humble being 'Nizam'.
(Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia)
'Ibn Ata Illah/Kwaja Abdullah Ansari (CWS): The Book of Wisdom and Kwaja Abdullah Ansari, Intimate Conversations'
By Victor Danner (Author)
Two early Sufi classics are contained here in one volume. They embody the essence of spiritual life in the Islamic tradition. Ibn Ata Illah (c. 1250-1309) was a Sufi saint and sage who lived in Egypt. Kwaja Abdullah Ansari (1006-1089) was one of major early writers of Persian mystical literature.
