• I am the servant of the Qur'an as long as I live.
    And I am the soil where the foot of Muhammad stepped.

    I bring blessings upon you, (O Muhammad), so that the breeze of
    nearness (to God) may increase. Since, with nearness of the
    Whole, all parts are allowed to approach.

    Suddenly, there grew a "branch of candy."
    (And) suddenly, there bubbled such a Water of (Eternal) Life.
    Suddenly, there flowed alms (to the poor) from the king.
    (May) there be joy for the soul of Muhammad, and greetings (of peace)!

    The spirit that was bound within the form of attributes
    Went to the (Divine) Essence by means of the light of
    (Muhammad) the Chosen.
    The moment it started going, it said out of joy,
    "Blessings (be) on the joyful spirit of (Muhammad) the Chosen!"

    Just as, during the night of the Ascension, God made (the greeting
    of peace) with the Light of the Absolute upon Muhammad: "Peace
    be upon you."

    There has never been a beauty like that of a (Prophet like)
    Muhammad in this world or the next. May the Glory of God help him!
    A voice from the lofty ones (among the angels came) from Heaven
    to every beggar: "O pure spirit of the one who is followed! O
    "Mercy to (all) peoples"! [Qur'ân 21:107]
    Yet, I have seen the signs of Your Grace and Kindness in the
    appearance of that incomparable Pearl, O Generous One.

    Since, although he is from (among) us, he doesn't resemble us. We
    are entirely (like) copper, and Muhammad is (like) the (alchemical)
    Muhammad broke many idols in the world, so that (religious)
    communities were saying, "O (our Sustaining) Lord!"
    If it had not been for Muhammad's efforts, you also would have
    worshiped idols like your ancestors.
    This head of yours has escaped from prostrating to idols, so that
    you may recognize his claim (of gratitude) upon the (religious)
    If you speak, talk about gratitude for this liberation, so that he may
    also free you from the inward idol.
    Because he freed your head from (worship of) idols, you should
    also liberate your heart by means of that power.
    We learned the skill of being a (true) man from God. We are the
    heroes of Love and the companions of Muhammad.

    Be among the community (of believers) who are blessed by
    (Divine) Mercy. Don't abandon the way of conduct of Muhammad,
    (but) be commanded (by it).
    He brings all of those (who are) led astray into the Way out of the
    May Muhammad be the guide on the Way of God forever!

    We hear all the time the voice of divine love from right and left.
    With the influence of this voice we are ascending to the heavens.
    Who has the capacity of watching us?
    Before coming to this world we were in heaven.
    We were friends of the angels.
    There is our real homeland,
    and we will return to it.
    How distant are the pure pearl of the divine and the dirty world of the soil.
    Without thinking of your honor, you came to this lower world.
    Pick up your properties and tie up your bur­den.
    This place is not ours.
    We have to migrate.
    The young chance is our friend.
    Sacrificing the soul is our job.
    And the head of our caravan is Mustafa,
    the Prophet, of whom the whole universe is proud.
    Mustafa, peace and blessings be upon him,
    is so high a being that the moon did not dare to see his face and split.
    The fragrance of the wind of this spring comes from his blessed hair.
    The shining of our imagination comes from his beauty'
    which reminds us of the newly rising sun.
    Heart and love have become friends,
    Like Ahmad and Abu Bakr became friends in the cave.
    These two friends' names were different,
    but their spirits was one.
    The light of Muhammad has become distributed in millions of pieces and has encompassed the whole world.
    The Prophet was like the lightening of that light.
    When it strikes, all veils of unbelief are torn, and thousands of monks are influenced by Muhammad and run toward him.
    When Muhammad's light came,
    unbelief put on its black clothes.
    When the period of the eternal kingdom came,
    the unbelievers hit the drum to prevent death.
    The whole face of the earth had become green.
    The heavens envied the earth and tore its sleeve.
    The moon had become split.
    The earth received life and became alive.
    Last night, there was a big commotion among the stars
    because a peerless star had descended to the earth.
    If the face of Muhammad is reflected on a wall,
    the heart of the wall will become alive.
    The wall, through his blessed reflection,
    will have such great happiness that even the wall will be rescued from hypocrisy.
    It was a shame for the wall to have two faces while the pious and the pure had only one.
    The honorable Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him,
    is the intercessor in this world and the other.
    This world is the world of religion and the other world is the world of paradise.
    He shows them the way in this world, and in the other world, he shows them his moonlike face.
    Muhammad's secret and evident prayer was to say:"O my Lord, show my followers the right path. In fact, they don't know.
    "With his blessed breath, the doors of the two worlds were opened.
    His prayer had been accepted in both.
    No one like him has come to the world, and no one like him will come.
    According to Rumi, as indicated in one of his poems, all Muhammad's words came from the ocean of reality. He says:
    “His words totally are pearls from the ocean of reality
    Because his heart was united with the ocean of truth.”

    It has been narrated from Anas, son of Malik, that a certain per­son became his guest.
    He (that person) related that after the meal Anas saw that the table napkin (was) yellow in hue,
    Dirty and stained; and said, "O maid-servant, throw it into the oven at once.
    "Thereupon the intelligent (maid) threw it into the oven, which was full of fire.
    All the guests were astounded there at:
    they were in expec­tation of (seeing) the smoke of the (burning) napkin.
    After a short time she took it out of the oven,
    clean and white and purged of that filth.
    The party said, "O venerable Companion, how didn't it burn, and how too did it become cleansed?"
    He replied, "Because Mustafa (Muhammad) often rubbed his hands and lips on this napkin.
    "O heart afraid of the fire and torment (of Hell), draw nigh unto such a hand and lip as that!
    Since it (the Prophet's blessing) bestowed such honour upon a lifeless object,
    What things will it reveal to the soul of the lover!
    Inasmuch as he (the Prophet) made the clods of the Ka'ba the qibla,
    do you, O soul, be (as) the dust of holy men in (your) war {against the flesh).
    Afterwards they said to the maid-servant, "Witt not you tell (us) your own feelings about all this?
    Why did you (so) quickly cast it (into the oven) at his behest?
    I suppose he was acquainted with the secrets,
    (But) why did you, mistress, throw such a precious napkin into the fire? "She answered,
    "I have confidence in the generous: I do not despair at their bounty. What a piece of cloth?
    If he bid me (myself) go without regret into the very essence of the fire, I, from perfect confidence (in him), will fall in:
    I have great hope of them that are devoted to God.
    I will throw myself, not (only) this napkin, because of my confidence in every generous one who knows the mystery
    "O brother, apply thy self to this elixir: the faith of a man must not be less than the faith of a woman.
    The heart of a man that is less than a woman is the heart that is less (in worth) than the belly.
    "O our sublime master! Friend of God!”
    O Beloved of God, you are the Messenger of the Sole Creator. You are the one chosen by the Holy Lord of Majesty (Who is) without equal.
    (You are) the delight of the Lord God (and) the highest Full-Moon of created beings, (and) you are the light of the eyes of (God's) Messengers (and) the Lamp of our eyes.
    On the night of the Ascension, (the angel) Gabriel was at (your) stirrup,(and) you are (the one who was) standing on top of the blue domes (of heaven)
    O Messenger of God, you know (that) your community is deprived and destitute, (and) you are the guide of those who are vulnerable and helpless.
    (You are) the cypress tree of the rose garden of Prophethood (and) the spring-season of spiritual knowledge. You are the rosebush of the garden of the Religious Law, and the nightingale of the lofty (heavens).
    O Mustafa, you are the supreme master
    O Beloved of God
    You are the Messenger of the One God
    You are Chosen by the Lord of Majesty, Pure, peerless
    My Sultan…
    You are the sweet darling of the Divine Presence
    You are the healer of hearts…
    O Friend of God
