Union with Beloved my desired Rabia

Brethren, my rest is in my solitude,
And my Beloved is ever in my presence.

Nothing for me will do but love of Him;
By love of Him I am tested in this world.
Wherever I am I contemplate His beauty.

O Thou, ever my joy, my life, from Thee
Is my existence and my ecstasy.

From all creation I have turned away,
For union with Beloved my desired end.

~ Rabia
