(Masnavi Book 3: 56) Hidden Saints




Setting forth how the Prophet, on whom be peace, said, Verily, God most High has friends who are concealed.

Another party go (to and fro) exceedingly hidden: how should they become well-known to the people of externals?

3105. They possess all this (spiritual dominion), and (yet) no one's eye falls upon their sovereignty for one moment.
Both their miracles and they (themselves) are in the (Divine) sanctuary: even the Abdál do not
hear their names.
Or art you ignorant of the bounties of God who is calling you to come yonder?
The whole world of six directions is (filled with) His bounty: wheresoever you lookest, it is making Him (His bounty) known.
When a generous man bids you come into the fire, come in quickly and do not say, “It will burn
me.”
