O my two co-prisoners! Are diverse lords better, or God, the One, the Conqueror?(Quran, 12:39)
What would the result of a castle being attacked from all sides be other than utter devastation? This is the story of our heart. When the Good-looker comes, He will expel all, and the heart will flourish again. The heart is unhappy and broken because multiple lords are pulling it from all sides. When the Beloved’s moon initially shines on the heart, it is only a crescent; however, it will gradually become a full moon, and the entire heart will glow silver.
When my Friend holds a chalice in His hand
Idol market starts to fall (Hafez, Ghazal 148:1)
Only the love of that full moon can clear the heart from all else and make it thrive and be blissful.
