[The following couplets] have been taken from the corpus of Hazrat Shah Abdul-Qadir-Jelaani Qaddas-Allahu Sirru-hul Aziz.
We gaze upon Our bondman with Mercy [daily] Three Hundred Sixty times,
You can imagine from this that in Our sight up to how much the Martaba of the slave is! That is, how [great] it is!
[O slave!] Do not be infidel with Us and leave Us not in haste,
As Our Sight of Mercy is on you since the First Day till Abad,
A dirty face that has become contaminated with the pollution of sin,
If it washed without water, [then] this is Our Mercy,
We will give your deed manifest (Account) in your own hands on the Day of Decision,
So that none else but you alone may know what is therein [that is, which sins are in it],
We give you Ten Times Reward in world for your one deed of goodness,
[And] then in the Hereafter will grant you Seven Hundred Seventy Times Sawaab!
If a sin committed is by you in err, We exonerate it with Our Sight of favor,
O My slave! Now you tell me if there is any other besides Me, who can dispense more Condescension (with complaisance) and benefaction than I do?
