The Intellect & The Heart
One day reason said to the heart: I am a guide for those who are lost.
I live on earth, but I roam the skies- just see the vastness of my reach.
My task in the world is to guide and lead, I am like Khizr of blessed steps.
I interpret the book of life, and through me Divine Glory shines forth.
You are no more than a drop of blood, While I am the envy of the priceless pearl!
The heart listened, and then said: This is true, But now look at me, And see what I am.
You penetrate the secret existence, But I see it with my eyes.
You deal with the outward aspect of things, I know what lies within.
Knowledge comes from you, gnosis from me; You seek God, I reveal Him.
Attaining the ultimate in knowledge only makes one restless- I am the cure for that malady.
You are the candle of the Assembly of Truth; I am the lamp of the Assembly of Beauty.
You are hobbled by space and time, While I am the bird that can reach up to ‘Sidrah’
My status is so high- I am the throne of the God of Majesty!
