Mansoor, that whale of the Oceans of Loveby Abu-Said Abil-Kheir
English version by Vraje Abramian
Original Language Persian/Farsi
Mansoor, that whale of the Oceans of Love,
had separated his soul from the entanglements of this life.
It was not him who claimed
Ana-al-Haq (I am the truth),
It was the Friend in whom he had lost his self.
It was the Beloved.
