by Yunus Emre
Our laws are different from other laws.
Our religion is like no other.
It is different from the seventy-two sects.
We are guided by different signs,
In this world an hereafter.
Without cleansing of visible waters,
without any movement of hands, feet, or head-
Whether at the Kaaba, in the mosque, or in ritual prayer,
everyone carries their own disease.
Which labels refer to whom, no one really knows.
Tomorrow it will be clear who abandoned thereligion.
Yunus, renew your soul, be remembered as a friend,
Know this power. Listen with the ears of love.
