Row your vessel in to ocean of reality until every one of your muscles of pretentiousness are totally exhausted.
Throw your ores and ego to the sharks, for now it’s all Heart.
Let the wind of Yaqin impregnate the sails.
Your pilot (Pir) has set the attitude of your sails to catch winds that will most benefit and heighten the vantage point of your spiritual quest.
Everything you thought you were, you were not.
And everything you thought you were not, you are.
Repent for everything. Everything! Even for existing.
Il Allah, Il Allah, Il Allah…
Your vessel (Heart) embarked on the sea of Truth with 360 lairs,
360 madmen and egomaniacs, conspiring to sink this ship.
Their goal is to delude you. If you believe them, they will hurt you,
And you will hurt others, who may not forgive you.
360 false pilots swearing they can guide you.
Pick them up and throw them over board, until it is only you and your Lord.
Be like the magnificent Nabi Muhammad (peace be upon him) who destroyed 360 idols in the Kaaba.
Repent for everything. Everything! Even existing.
Il Allah, Il Allah, Il Allah…
Trust in the attitude of the sails set by the Pilot (Pir).
There is only Allah. Only Allah.
From to sea to sea, test and trials, stay in Dhikr,
until you lose self recognition.
Engage in Nafi/Asbat, negation and affirmation, as you reach a station
wherein every thought and after thought is Allah’s Greatness.
There is only Allah. Cast off your ungodly. There is only Allah. Cast off your malice and bitterness. Cast off the 360 idols from your heart. There is only Allah.
Drift in this world watching the movements of Allah’s will.
Until you only see , only Allah.
Repent for everything. Everything! Even existing.
