how many more tears
Hafiz will have
call for him now
that his heart
has been broken in two?
Hajji Nabil, the beloved murid (disciple), khadim (servant) and secretary of Maulana Sheikh Nazim (may his secret be sanctified), could not resist on this Earth even one year from the departure of Maulana. Yesterday he reached his beloved Master in Paradise, to keep on honoring him and serving him happily, passionately, joyfully, wisely, lovingly, freshly, perfectly, as he always used to do.
Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un
(“Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return”)
