Abu Zuhri New Encounter With Garcien de Tassy
My dear Eastern Asian Travelers, others may be hard to perceive our path and masks,
let hears what JH Garcien de Tassy who
Pen her kind words to us today 30 Mac 2007 . She published the Book of Revelation
Of The Secrets Of The Birds and Flowers in1821 .
Dedicated to Baron Silvestere
De Sacy, original Arabic text by the Learned Sheikh Izzedin b.Abdas Salam d.1280
Translated by Irene Hoare and Darya Galy. English and Arabic verification by
Al-arif Dr. A.Halim Abbassi, D.Litt and MY.A.Shadhili. With a Preface by
Al-Hajj Anwar K Winstone-Hamilton, 1980:
To test your wits, we cite this passages.
Quick, don’t look West but within. Grasp before
It wisdom fly away….
EXCERPTS PAGE 31-32 – THE BIRD OF ATTAR
Look at my Falcon. See how Faithful I am to the Rules of Silence.
What do I say .Merit for me is the very Discretion of my Tongue.
My perfection of Observing my Duties.
Though by Force I have been
Torn away from the Desert and brought against my Will
to a Far off Land, never do you find me Revealing
my deepest Thoughts.
Nor will you see me Weeping over Remnants that
Remind me of a loved one.
Instruction is what I Seek
On my Journey. And I have found fit for reward whenever
I have been put to test. For according to Proverb,
It is Test that decides whether someone is worth Honor
Or Contempt. When perceiving the Treachery of Time
And fearing that Hatred may move me, my Master
Covers my eyes with the hood.
I understand his actions by the Words :
‘Do not extend your Sight.
Do not be Free with you Tongue.
Do not walk the Earth with petulance in your Step.’
When I have learned what is deemed I need to now,
When I have come thru my Trials and developed some Skill,
The my Master is Happy to use me for the Hunt.
Delivering me from my Bonds, he throws me up,
Making the signal that appears in the Quran, when
God said to the Prophet : ‘We sent you..as Mercy to
All Worlds’. The Hood is only removed from my
Eyes when I am Adept in executing what
I been Taught; it is then that Kings become my Servants
Ant their Wrists are Beneath my proud Feet’.
I forbid my Tongue an excess of Speech
I forbid my eyes the Spectacle of the World:
Menacing death, each day ever Closer
Make me oblivious to the Sweetness of Raptures.
My only concern is to make my Manner of Princes
And to practice Noble Acts.
It is from the King’s wrist I take off
For my Flight; aiming for my Prey
I seize it at once in my Victorious Talons
And am Ready, at the slightest Sign
To return to Him who sent me.
My life should serve as a Guide for all those
Who would Bow to the Sacred Laws
of Submission to Faith.
Praise be to God whose Remoteness is Nearness
Whose Nearness in Remoteness, whose Greatness defies
Any manner of Description; whose Sanctity so Sublime
Is Inestimatable, Limitless.
Anyone who gives himself to serious Thoughts,
And is Guided and sustained by honest and
Pure intention, may come to Understand….
May acquire the Knowledge, may distinguish
True from false, Reality from Error…
The mystic, filled with Gratitude for all
The favors which he received, prepares to
Dig deeper into the mine of Wisdom.
I ask God to bless and give peace to
His Prophet to whom He vouchsafed
A Revelation to blaze out His glory
And whom He guided across the celestial spheres..
May God’s mercy and favor rest forever on
This Messenger, his Companions and his Descendants.
So that a few drops of blessing and illumination may
..touched all eastern travel companions of today as well
TREASURE TO MY FRIENDS
Whoever enters the spirit of my interpretations
And understands my parables will derive
Pleasure from my book; whoever finds them
Alien will gain nothing..truth melted into fiction or opposite way.
I open my treasures to my friends and
Weep my pain to those who suffer the same grief.
My Jasmine then said this: Despair is an error.
Let humility itself speaks.
Whose perfume is this .
.that we all inhale subtly...
By the bamboo brush pen of seeker abuzuhri shin
Western lake, putrajaya mountain
South of kuala Lumpur Titiwangsa Range
April 2007 early Spring…
