I saw my Rabb with the eye of my heart

Mansur Al Hallaj

I saw my Rabb with the eye of my heart
I said: who are you? He said: You
“Where” with you has nowhere
And there is nowhere where you are
Illusion with you has no illusion
Can illusion know where you are?

You are the one who gathers every “where”
To nowhere, so where are you?
In my annihilation my annihilation perished
And in my annihilation I found you
In the effacement of my name and the outline of my form

I asked about me so I said: You.
My inmost secret pointed to you
Until I was annihilated to myself, and you remained
You are my life and my heart’s secret
Wherever I may be, you are.
You encompass everything with knowledge
All that I see is you
So grant forgiveness my God
