Listen dear people! Without the Quran,
Man never reaches God.
Whoever is unaware of this light,
Is not fit for the eyes of the Friend.
The Furqan [the Holy Quran] has a wonderful effect,
In that it makes one a lover of the true Beloved.
It gives us authentic tidings of the One,
Whose name is the Greatest, the Almighty.
It draws man towards the abode of the Beloved,
And then it shows him signs beyond his ken.
It fills the heart with light divine,
And cleanses the breast thoroughly.
What more of its excellences should I describe,
Suffice it to say that it gives a new life to life.
