[Sunlight] God suffices me



Love is a ship for the elect:
it is deliverance from disaster.
Sell intelligence and buy bewilderment:
your intelligence may be opinion,
while bewilderment may be naked vision.
Sacrifice your understanding in the presence of Muhammad:
say, God suffices me.*


`Eshq chon kashti bud bahr-e khavâss
kam bud âfat bud aghlab khalâs
Ziraki be-ferush va hayrâni be-khar
ziraki zannast va hayrâni nazar
`aql qorbân kon be-pish-e Mostafâ
Hasbi Allâh gu keh Allâham kafâ

-- Mathnawi IV: 1406-1408

*Hadith of Prophet Muhammad: Hasbi Allâh (God is sufficient for me).
