Looking for Your Face

Hu Shaykh Nooruddeen Durkee
1.
From the beginning of my life
I have been looking for Your Face
but today I have seen it

Today I have seen
the charm, the beauty,
the unfathomable grace
of the Face
that I was looking for

Today I have found You
and those who laughed
and scorned me yesterday
are sorry that they were not looking
as I did

I am bewildered by the magnificence
of Your beauty
and wish to see You
with a hundred eyes

My heart has burned with passion
and has searched forever
for this wondrous beauty
that I now behold

I am ashamed
to call this love humane
and afraid of God
to call it divine

Your fragrant breath
like the morning breeze
has come to the stillness of the garden
You have breathed new life into me
I have become Your sunshine
and also Your shadow

My soul is screaming in ecstasy
Every fiber of my being
is in love with You

Your effulgence
has lit a fire in my heart
And You have made radiant for me
the earth and sky

My arrow of love
has arrived at the target
I am in the house of mercy
and my heart
is a place of prayer

Wujoohun yawma-ithin nadiratun
Ila Rabbiha nathiratun

Some faces, that Day,
will be resplendent -
To their Lord, gazing upon.
