Murshid-i Kamil

In appearance, he seems to need being served;
Innerly, though, he pays himmat to those who deserved.

It will sure be misleading to judge by appearance;
Receiving the himmat requires seeing the essence.

Haqq ta'ala has His beloved ones concealed;
Their inner with appearance He covered.

Their appearance is the Shari'at's mirror;
Haqq's Attentions will be reflected in their inner.

The lover will get from afflictions such pleasure
As will not be in anything, be itself pleasure.

People unaware will not believe this; yet,
In Qur'an Haqq ta'ala says so by ayat.

If a person attends a Wali's luminous sohbat,
His heart will open, nurs will his inner illuminate.

Desires of the nafs will no more titilate him;
Secrets of this way will at once open before him.

Adhere to the Shari'at, then search for a Murshid!
Cannot find one? Then love is enough if you are candid!

Those who have attained these two blessings,
Will receive fayz from the heart of Murshid's.

Haloes gushing out from the Messenger's heart,
Will flow into them due to loving regard.

Abd-ul-hakim Arwasi was a Wali;
His words and manners was its testimony.

From Sayyid Fehim he took over caliphate;
In his every behaviour was seen keramat.

Do not think that the Murshid is hard to recognize!
His behaviour will always be Shari'at-wise!

If a person is without the Shari'at in deeds and statements,
Quick, run away from him, whatever stories he invents!

Shari'at prescribes how deeds are to be done;
Shari'at and Iman make up Islam; the rest, none.

Iman means to believe, Shari'at means practices;
Being Muslim requires these two performances.

Believers have parted into groups, seventy-three;
Ahl as-sunna is the single right group, blame-free!
