translated by Aisha Bewley
By us you are the complaint and the complainer.
or elevation without restraint?
for the one who affirms tawhId by association.
from their freedom of action without nets or snares.
severely cut off by the Shari'a.
and they believe without perception.
swimming between the angels of the spheres.
as if I were Him, were it not for you! Were it not for you!
The God of creation will bring you close, taking charge of you by that.
whenever a creature alights at your abode.
The Lawgiver said that to me, so reflect on that!
which you have done and where is your claim?
My Lord has seized control of you by that.
and the basis of its meaning by your meaning,
about your prescribed fast which will divest you.
You are merely the place of its manifestation.
and yet you are the one dying of hunger, so know that!
from you when He fashioned you (the self).
He only gave that to you!
and your source-spring (eye) is described as weeping.
between the two of you, so where is your manifestation?
He said, "At your service" to you.
wrote your pure description from Him.
He brought you near from one aspect and put your far from another.
for the sake of what He makes pleasing to you.
Do not forget so as to be forgotten.
which came to me from one who does not lie.
knowledge of what is between the ascetics and devout.
He gave me a form whose perfection is only by your shelter.
Fasting is abstention and elevation
Fasting in reality is non-action, not action
The delight of the faster lies in his attachment to the degree of the negation of likeness
Fasting is a samadiyya attribute and the Real repays it
The difference between negation of likeness from Allah and from fasting
The faster being forbidden obscenity, shouting and strife
The smell of the mouth of the faster with Allah
Ibn 'Arabi with Musa ibn Muhammad al-Qabbab at the minaret in the Haram of Makka
Celestial natures are averse to foul odours
The Gate of Quenching by which fasters enter the Garden
