We become something only when we become nothing

We become something only when we become nothing

We become something only when we become nothing
When we eliminate our ego, experience enlightenment
At that time we become one with Allah in spiritual union
In the lamp your soul, there are abundant of oil to spark

Unless we use spiritual Matchstick there will be no spark
How long you will be in ignorance wasting remaining of life
Acquaint yourselves with esoteric divine knowledge in you
Unless practice it will not benefit of this faith par excellence

Try to understand it, get informed of your faith to avoid sins
By birth you got Gems in your soul, you are unaware of it
Being misguided lost in exoteric faith, away from esoteric
What's the difference between Animal & Men is the intellect

Your nobleness & your whole life is there to recognize the soul
The Lamp of Allah's Light is in you, bow down and inquire of it
If you don't go into the search of light how would you know God
The day is for to work, night is there for Ebadat to find the light

When we know we are here for short span of life to go eternal
Our conscious reminds us of our esoteric duty but we ignore it
The Divine Lamp is in you, ignite it with power of Ism-e-Azam
We all must understand esoteric meaning of our faith to rise High
