Rumi quatrain, #823 Foruzanfar

Word arrives from the Friend, He is with you!
Sparks fly in the heart, because of this news!
But you don’t know yourself, and remain sad;
Know yourself- and what else but fire is yours!

و هو معکم از و خبر میآید
در سینه ازین خبر شرر میآید
زآنی ناخوش که خویش نشناخته
چون بشناسی دگر چه در میآید

note: the Word that arrives from the Friend
is a Koranic reference: And He is with you, wherever you may be.
