Supreme Name Is The Imam Of The Time

….time had countless ruses and pretexts to entrap me;
i became caught in such a pretext, such a deception

i found help against the devil’s persecution and cunning
when i entered the sanctuary of the imam of mankind.

when the light of the imam shone upon my soul, even though
i was black as night, i became the shining sun.

the supreme name is the imam of the time, through him,
venus-like, i ascended to the heavens.

[shimmering light, translated by faquir m. hunzai, pp 60-61]
