POEM – What is Tasawwuf?

What is Tasawwuf ? Good character and awareness of God.
That’s all Tasawwuf is. And nothing more.

What is Tasawwuf ? Love and affection.
It is the cure for hatred and vengeance. And nothing more.

What is Tasawwuf ? The heart attaining tranquility –
which is the root of religion. And nothing more.

What is Tasawwuf ? Concentrating your mind,
which is the religion of Ahmad (peace be upon him). And nothing more.

What is Tasawwuf ? Contemplation that travels to the Divine throne.
It is a far-seeing gaze. And nothing more.

Tasawwuf is keeping one’s distance from imagination and supposition.
Tasawwuf is found in certainty. And nothing more.

Surrendering one’s soul to the care of the inviolability of religion;
this is Tasawwuf. And nothing more.

Tasawwuf is the path of faith and affirmation of unity;
this is the incorruptible religion. And nothing more.

Tasawwuf is the smooth and illuminated path.
It is the way to the most exalted paradise. And nothing more.

I have heard that the ecstasy of the wearers of wool
comes from finding the taste of religion. And nothing more.

Tasawwuf is nothing but Shari’at.
It is just this clear road. And nothing more.
