Approach The Dwellings Of The Dear Ones

Poem By Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi

Approach the dwelling place
of the dear ones who have taken covenants
may clouds of incessant rain pour upon it!
And breathe the scent
of the wind over against their land,
in desire that the sweet airs
may tell thee where they are.
I know that they encamped
at the ban tree of Idam,
where the arar plants grow
and the shih and the katam.
