Piousness and the path of love

by Abu-Said Abil-Kheir

English version by Vraje Abramian
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Piousness and the path of love
are two different roads.
Love is the fire that burns both belief
and non-belief.
Those who practice Love have neither
religion nor caste.

-- from Nobody, Son of Nobody: Poems of Shaikh Abu-Saeed Abil-Kheir, Translated by Vraje Abramian
