Selected Poems by Qurratu'l-'Ayn

Edited and translated by Amin Banani with Jascha Kessler


Hear this! My one and only Cause is true.
The words I speak mean victory to you.

Off with rags of law and pious fashion!
Swim naked in the sea of compassion!

How long will you drift through this world of war,
far from the safety of your native shore?

Sing, Be! Our Cause stands strong, both clean and plain:
What comes from God returns to God again!
