Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi Alayhi Rahma on The passing of Hazrat Hakim Abu’l-Majd Majdud Sanai Ghaznavi Alayhi Rahma:
“Look! Master Sana’i is dead!’’
Ah, such a man’s death is no small affair!
He was no straw that is gone with the wind,
He was no water that froze in the cold,
He was no comb that broke in the hair,
He was no grain that was crushed by the earth,
And He was a golden treasure in the dust as he considered both the worlds a grain.
He cast the dust form back into the dust, He carried heavenward both soul and mind.
The dregs were mixed here with the purest wine;
The wine then rose; the dregs were settling down.
The second soul, which people do not know –
By God! He gave it to the Friend,
To God! They all meet during travel,
O my friend – From Marw and Rayy, and Kurds, and Byzantine,
But everyone returns to his own home – Why should fine silk become a friend of wool?
Be quiet, quiet! For the King of Speech erased your name now from the book of speech!”
– Hazrat Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi Alayhi Rahma
