HAZRAT RABIA BASRI PDF

I carry a torch in one hand And a bucket of water in the other: With these things I am going to set fire to Heaven And put out the flames of Hell So that voyagers to God can rip the veils And see the real goal. My Beloved is alone with me there, always. I have found nothing in all the worlds That could match His love, This love that harrows the sands of my desert. If I come to die of desire And my Beloved is still not satisfied, I would live in eternal despair.

I carry a torch in one hand And a bucket of water in the other: With these things I am going to set fire to Heaven And put out the flames of Hell So that voyagers to God can rip the veils And see the real goal.

My Beloved is alone with me there, always. I have found nothing in all the worlds That could match His love, This love that harrows the sands of my desert.

If I come to die of desire And my Beloved is still not satisfied, I would live in eternal despair. To abandon all that He has fashioned And hold in the palm of my hand Certain proof that He loves me— That is the name and the goal of my search.

You are enough for me. O Lord, From fear of Hell, burn me in Hell. O Lord, From hope of Paradise, bar me from its gates. Speech is born out of longing, True description from the real taste.

The one who tastes, knows; the one who explains, lies. How can you describe the true form of Something In whose presence you are blotted out? And in whose being you still exist? And who lives as a sign for your journey? In my selfish love, I remember You and You alone. Doorkeeper of the heart:versions of Rabia. This is a disease no doctor can cure. Only Union with the Friend can cure it.

But many spiritual stories are associated with her and what we can glean about her is reality merged with legend. These traditions come from Farid ud din Attar a later sufi saint and poet, who used earlier sources. Rabia herself though has not left any written works. It is not clear how she was traveling in a caravan that was set upon by robbers.
