Speech of the lover!


Replying to the lamentation of a mujaz about the inability to express his inner state clearly Hakim al-ummah Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanawi (Allah have mercy on him) said,

”Just consider the actions (of worship both esoteric/exoteric) to be the goal. Do not consider expressions and discussions (of the states) to be the objective (of this path).

The poet appropriately says,

گر چہ تفسیر زبان روشن گر است

لیک عشق بے زبان روشن تراست
