Abdullah Ansari : The Friend beside me

Khwaja Abdullah Ansari (1006–1088 CE) was known as the Pir of Herat, and was a student of Shaikh Abbul Hassan Kharqani.

O God
You know why I am happy:
     It is because I seek Your company,
     not through my own efforts.

O God,
You decided and I did not.
     I found the Friend beside me
     when I woke up!

Translation A. G. Farhadi
