Al Hallaj Poems

two men in a boat

Poetry By Al Hallaj

” For your sake, I hurry over land and water:
For your sake, I cross the desert and split the mountain in two,
And turn my face from all things,
Until the time I reach the place
Where I am alone with You.”

To Reach God -Al  Hallaj

“To Reach God From: Perfume of the Desert:  Edited: Andrew Harvey




I do not cease swimming in the seas of love,
rising with the wave, then descending;
now the wave sustains me, and then I sink beneath it;
love bears me away where there is no longer any shore.

– (Diwan al-Hallaj, M. 34)
