Lovers of Allah

If as lovers of Allah you wish to rise
turn to Layla with sincerity in your eyes.

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
