“And the final end is to your Lord.”

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

How utterly amazing is someone
who flees from something he cannot escape
to seek something that will not last!

Do not travel from phenomenal being to phenomenal being.
You will be like the donkey going around at the mill.
It travels to what it set out from.

Travel from phenomenal beings
to the Maker of Being.

“And the final end is to your Lord.”

- Ibn Ata’ Illah

Ya Haqq!
