If as lovers of Allah you wish to rise
From all who scorn your love turn away
and travel to Allah's lovers wherever you may.
But if your love is totally sincere
you'll see Allah's lovers by staying here.
And if your heart's vision is pure and fair
You'll see Her lights shining everywhere
So begins a qasida from the Diwan of Shaykh Muhammad ibn al-Habib
