Those travelling to Himby Ibn Ata' Illah
English version by Victor Danner
Original Language Arabic
Those travelling to Him
are guided by the light of turning their faces toward Him.
Those who have arrived
have the light of face-to-face encounter.
The former belong to lights,
but the lights belong to the latter
because they belong to Allah, and are His alone.
then leave them plunging in their games."
