Khwajah Abdullah Ansari (1006-1088 CE) was a prominent Persian Sufi who lived in Khorosan, in what is now Afghanistan. He was known as Pir-i-Herat, the sage of Herat.
I address You, the Divine;
You rescue hearts in pain,
and bring ecstasy to the hearts of Your obedient.
You accept our shortcomings, when confessed.
No one can enter the path towards You, unless You will it.
No one can discover the path towards You unless
You hold one’s hand and guide.
Hold my hand and guide me towards the Real,
There is no one except You who rescues.
Give me refuge, as there is no one but You who gives refuge.
Protect my heart, as there is no protector but You.
You are the answer to all my questions;
You are the healing for all my pains.
You are the peace that protects me from all my disturbances.
