The Mawlawî Awrâd-e Sharîf

The Mawlawî Awrâd-? Sharîf

 

Translated from Arab?c by ?brah?m Gamard, 12/08

 

The Mawlawî Awrâd-? Sharîf (Turk?sh: "Evrâd-? Sherîf"), the "Mevlev? Noble Da?ly Rec?tat?ons," ?s an ?mportant da?ly pract?ce of the Mevlev? derv?shes. Th?s ?s an Arab?c word (s?ngular: "w?rd", or "v?rd" ?n Turk?sh) that means "cont?nual (da?ly) pract?ce" of parts of the Qur'ân. ?t ?ncludes selected verses and chapters from the Holy Qur'ân plus selected Ahâdîth prayers, or trad?t?onal prayers sa?d by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon h?m). Th?s da?ly task ?s ass?gned to the early morn?ng, between the t?me of the complet?on of the pre-dawn r?tual prayer and sunr?se.

 

The Awrâd-? Sharîf has been p?ously attr?buted to Hazrat-? Mawlânâ for a number of centur?es, and many Mevlev?s have bel?eved that ?t ?s the same select?on of Qur'an?c verses and Ahâdîth prayers rec?ted by Hz. Mawlânâ. However, as the great Mevlev? scholar, Abdülbak? Gölp?narl? Efend? wrote ?n "The Mevlev?s After Mevlânâ" (Mevlâna'dan Sonra Mevlev?l?k), the collect?ons of Mevlev? l?tan?es took form long after Mawlânâ's t?me, were ?nfluenced by l?tan?es of other suf? orders, and probably ?ncorporated select?ons rec?ted by some of the great Mevlev?s after the t?me of Ulû `âr?f Chelebî and other Cheleb?s after h?m. As he po?nted out, Aflâkî (?n h?s hag?ography, "The Glor?ous Talents and Ab?l?t?es of the Knowers of God"--"Manâq?bu 'l-`âr?fîn") recorded that Hz. Mawlânâ used to rec?te a Hadîth prayer (of the Prophet Muhamad--peace and bless?ngs be upon h?m) after every pre-dawn r?tual prayer that beg?ns, "O God, make for me a l?ght ?n my heart..." [D.1 below]. And he recorded that Hz. Mawlânâ rec?ted a remarkable prayer of h?s own: "?n every (s?tuat?on of) fear..." [C.4 below]. And he also ?ncluded a prayer heard ?n a dream by a d?sc?ple soon after Hz. Mawlânâ's death: "O God, be merc?ful and k?nd toward my ch?ef and my rel?ance..." [D.2 below]. See also Translator's art?cle, "Arab?c Prayers of Mawlana Jalaludd?n Rum?" v?a th?s l?nk.

 

Here, four texts of the Awrâd-? Sharîf have been consulted. The transl?terat?on follows the text labeled EM. Some major textual d?fferences are ?nd?cated by footnotes w?th references to the other three texts: FAKH, MUST, and M.SHAMS.

 

The transl?terat?on ?s punctuated accord?ng to the pauses made by Hajj? Hâf?z ?mâm Hüsey?n Erek Efend? (ch?ef ?mâm of the Shîshlî mosque ?n ?stanbul) ?n h?s CD record?ng of the FAKH text. S?nce th?s record?ng ?s ava?lable on the ?nternet, here, one's browser can be eas?ly opened to both webpages at the same t?me ?n order to read the transl?terat?on wh?le hear?ng the beaut?ful rec?tat?on of Hüsey?n Erek. ?n cases where the FAKH text (read by Hüsey?n Erek) d?ffers from the EM text used here, the d?fferences can be found ?n the footnotes.

 

Stops are ?nd?cated by "."; repet?t?ons needed to complete longer phrases are ?nd?cated by ","; the hamza, or "glottal stop" (~) ?s d?fferent?ated from the el?s?on, or om?ss?on of a vowel ('); follow?ng M.SHAMS, many words beg?nn?ng w?th a vowel are preceded by a hamza; two consecut?ve consonants that are pronounced d?fferently are separated by a slash to make them clear: "ash/hadu" (?nstead of "ashhadu") and "aS/Hab" (?nstead of "ASHab"); words end?ng ?n pronouns are ?nd?cated by hyphens: Glory be to You--"subHâna-ka", You are our Protector--"anta mawlâ-nâ", (O) my Susta?n?ng Lord---"rabb-î".

 

The f?rst sect?on, des?gnated by the letter "A", cons?sts of aHâdîth prayers; subd?v?s?ons are numbered accord?ng to the d?v?s?ons ?n MUST, where source references are made for each prayer segment. The second sect?on, des?gnated by the letter "B", cons?sts of verses and chapters from the Holy Qur'ân. The th?rd sect?on, des?gnated by the letter "C", cons?sts of aHâdîth prayers; subd?v?s?ons are numbered accord?ng to the d?v?s?ons ?n MUST. The fourth sect?on, des?gnated by the letter "D", cons?sts of several d?fferent add?t?onal sect?ons that follow ?n the four texts after the end of the Awrâd-? Sharîf ?tself.

 

The four texts are as follows:

 

EM = "Evrad-? Mevlâna: Aç?klamal? Evrâd-? Sher?f, Or?j?nal Met?n, Mevlev? V?rdler?" [the (da?ly l?tan?es of Mevlânâ: w?th commentary on the Noble L?tan?es, or?g?nal text, Mevlev? l?tan?es], ?stanbul: Rûmî Yay?nlar?, 2005. The translat?on from Arab?c to Turk?sh ?s based on that by Celâlett?n M. Bâk?r Çelebî and H. Hüsey?n Top (?n FAKH). ?t was prepared for publ?cat?on by Bek?r Shah?n, ed?ted by Mustafa Özçel?k, and ?ncludes a beaut?ful call?graphy of the Arab?c text made by a call?grapher ?n ?stanbul named Al-Hâjj Mustafa Halîm, done ?n 1966-67. The text ?s based on 16 manuscr?pts from l?brar?es ?n Konya and ?stanbul.

 

The more modern vers?ons of the Awrâd-? Sharîf are shorter than the older ones ?n that, wh?le some may ?nclude Sûrahs 96 and 97, they have el?m?nated Sûrahs 100-107. The reason for th?s may be that ?n former centur?es ?t was more common for Musl?ms to have memor?zed the f?nal Sûrahs of the Qur'ân from a young age, and therefore to have been able to rec?te them eas?ly and qu?ckly. However, more modern Mevlev?s may have felt that to ?nclude so many Sûrahs made the da?ly rec?tat?on of the Noble l?tan?es too lengthy. ?n any case, ?n th?s presentat?on of the Awrâd-? Sherîf, these ten Sûrahs are ne?ther transl?terated or translated.

 

FAKH = "Hazret-? Mevlânân?n Mübârek Duâlar? (Mevlevî Evrâd-? Sherîfes?)," prepared (= translated from Arab?c ?nto Turk?sh) by Celâlett?n M. Bâk?r Çelebî and H. Hüsey?n Top, ?stanbul: Güven Mücell?t, 1993. The manuscr?pt used ?n th?s ed?t?on was wr?tten ?n1320/1902. ?t ends w?th some ?nstruct?ons wr?tten ?n Pers?an by the last Mevlev? shaykh of the Bahâr?ya Mevlevî-khâna (the Mevlevî center ?n Eyüp, near ?stanbul), Shaykh Fakhru'ddîn Hüsey?n Efend? (d?ed 1911), that were addressed to h?s d?sc?ple, M?dhat Bahâr? Beytur Efend? (d?ed 1971; h?s d?sc?ple ?s Hajj? Hâf?z Hüsey?n Top Efend?).

 

The text of th?s book was publ?shed ?n Engl?sh as "The Mevlev? W?rd: The Prayers Rec?ted Da?ly by Mevlev? Derv?shes", Soquel, Cal?forn?a: Theshold Soc?ety, 2000. Passages from the Qur'ân are ma?nly a m?xture of the translat?ons by Muhammad Asad ("The Message of the Qur'ân", 1980 and by Yusuf Al? ("The Holy Qur'ân", 1946), the aHâdîth prayers were translated from Arab?c by Mahmoud Mostafa (who also transl?terated the ent?re text), and the f?nal Engl?sh render?ngs of the text were made by Cam?lle Helm?nsk?. The book ?ncludes a foreword by Dr. Celâlett?n M. Bâk?r Çelebî, who stated: "As a servant of Allah who has devoted h?s l?fe to ?slam, to Mevlana, and to th?s path, ? can conf?rm that those who do not know Allah and h?s prophet Muhammed, and h?s Book, cannot know Mevlana. Th?s ?s because Mevlana's words are the ?nterpretat?on of the Qur'an. What they all recommend ?s that people love each other and l?ve together ?n peace and un?ty. The path of Mevlana ?s the path of Muhammad and the Qur'an."

 

MUST = "Mawlaw?yya hadhâ mat?n? awrâd", a manuscr?pt wr?tten ?n 1282/1865 by a scr?be named al-Hajj MuSTAfà Râq?m. A lengthy treat?se by Mathnawî-Khwânu Dâru 'l-Mathnawî al-Hajj FayDullâh an-Naqshbandî al-Murâdî al-Mawlawî was wr?tten ?n the marg?ns. The manuscr?pt was g?ven to Kab?r and Cam?lle Helm?nsk? by Dr. Celâlett?n Çelebî. The text of th?s Awrâd was reproduced ?n the "The Mevlev? W?rd", but ?t was not the Arab?c text used for the Engl?sh translat?on ?n that book (wh?ch ?s FAKH, the one translated ?nto Turk?sh by Dr. Celalett?n Çelebî and Hüsey?n Top).

 

M.SHAMS = "al~awrâdu 'sh-sharîfa", publ?shed ?n Damascus, Syr?a, by Shaykh al-Hajj MuHammad Shamsu'ddîn al-Mawlawî al-AHmadî, 1395/1975.

 

Much grat?tude ?s due to the translat?ons of the Holy Qur'ân that were consulted (by Yusuf Al?, Muhammad Asad, Marmaduke P?ckthal, A. J. Arberry, and Muhammad Al?), the pr?or translat?on of the Ahâdîth prayers by Mahmoud Mostafa, as well as the comp?lers of Arab?c d?ct?onar?es and Qur'an?c glossar?es that were consulted many hundreds of t?mes.

God! There ?s no d?v?n?ty except H?m, the Ever-L?v?ng, the Eternal. No sleep can se?ze H?m and no slumber. To H?m belongs whatever ?s ?n the heavens and whatever ?s on the earth. Who ?s the one that can ?ntercede w?th H?m, except w?th H?s perm?ss?on? He knows what ?s (h?dden) ?n front of them and beh?nd them. And they cannot encompass anyth?ng of H?s knowledge, except what He w?lls. H?s Throne extends (throughout) the heavens and the earth, and the preservat?on of both does not t?re H?m. And He ?s the Most H?gh, the Supremely Great. ?n rel?g?on there ?s no forc?ng (to do what ?s) aga?nst the w?ll (of people). Certa?nly r?ght gu?dance ?s clearly d?st?nct from what leads astray. So whoever den?es the satans and bel?eves ?n God has surely se?zed and held the strongest handle that w?ll never break off. And God ?s All-Hear?ng, All-Know?ng. God ?s the Protector of those who bel?eve; He w?ll br?ng them from darkness ?nto l?ght. But (as for) those who ungratefully deny, the?r fr?ends are the satans; He w?ll br?ng them from l?ght ?nto darkness. They w?ll be compan?ons of the F?re (of Hell), ?n wh?ch they w?ll rema?n. [2:255-257]

Whatever ?s ?n the heavens and on earth belongs to God. And whether you show openly whatever ?s w?th?n yourselves or h?de ?t, God w?ll settle your account ?n regard to ?t. For He pardons whoever He w?lls and He pun?shes whoever He w?lls. And God ?s Powerful over all th?ngs. The Messenger bel?eves ?n whatever has been revealed to h?m from h?s Susta?n?ng Lord, and (so do) the bel?evers. All (of them) bel?eve ?n God and H?s angels and H?s books and H?s messengers. (And they say,) "We do not separate one as d?fferent from (another) of H?s messengers." And they say, "We l?stened and we w?ll obey. We ask Your forg?veness, (O) our Susta?n?ng Lord, and the journey's arr?val ?s to You." God does not ?mpose d?ff?culty upon any soul except what h?s ab?l?ty (can endure); Whatever (good) he earns (?s favorable) to h?m and whatever (bad) he earns ?s aga?nst h?m. (O) our Susta?n?ng Lord! Do not pun?sh us ?f we forget or make an (un?ntent?onal) m?stake. (O) our Lord! And do not ?mpose a burden on us l?ke what you ?mposed on those pr?or to us. (O) our Lord! And do not burden us w?th what our strength can not bear. Pardon us (for our wrongdo?ngs), and forg?ve us, and be merc?ful to us. You are our Protector, so help us aga?nst the ungrateful den?ers.

?n the name of God, the most Merc?ful, the Most Compass?onate. Yâ-Sîn. Then (by) the Qur'ân of W?sdom: truly (O Muhammad) you are among the messengers, on a stra?ght path. (?t ?s a revelat?on) sent down by the Most M?ghty, the Most Compass?onate, ?n order that you may warn a people whose fathers were not warned, so they are neglectful and heedless. Certa?nly the word (of God) w?ll have come true aga?nst most of them, s?nce they do not bel?eve. Truly We have put cha?ns on the?r necks that are up to the ch?ns, so that the?r heads are ra?sed up. And We have put a barr?cade ?n front of them and a barr?cade ?n back of them. Then We ve?led them; therefore they cannot see. And ?t ?s the same to them (whether) you warn them or do not warn them: they w?ll not bel?eve. Truly you can (only) warn someone who follows the Rem?nder and (who) p?ously and v?rtuously fears the Most Merc?ful (who ?s) h?dden. So g?ve h?m good news of forg?veness and a generous and bount?ful reward. Truly We w?ll rev?ve the dead. And We wr?te down whatever (good deeds) they have sent ?n advance and the traces (they have left beh?nd). And We have made an account of all th?ngs ?n a clear book (of ev?dence).

And put forth a parable for them about the people of a town to wh?ch messengers came. When we sent two (messengers) to them, they ungratefully den?ed both, so We made them stronger w?th a th?rd. Then they sa?d, "Truly we have been sent to you." (But) they sa?d (?n reply), "You are noth?ng other than humans l?ke us. And (furthermore), the Merc?ful (God) has never sent down anyth?ng (of revelat?on); (and) even ?f so, you are (noth?ng) but l?ars." They (then) sa?d, "Our Susta?n?ng Lord knows that truly we have been sent to you, and there ?s no (obl?gat?on) upon us except a clear del?very (of the message)." (But) they sa?d (?n reply), "We certa?nly see an (ev?l) omen w?th you (here). (So) ?f you do not g?ve up, we w?ll def?n?tely stone you and you w?ll suffer a pa?nful pun?shment from us." They (then) sa?d, "Your (ev?l) omen ?s w?th you. W?ll you (do th?s) ?f you are rem?nded? However, you are a people g?ven to excess." And (then) a man came qu?ckly from the farthest part of the town. He sa?d, "O (my) people, follow the messengers! Follow those who do not ask you for a reward and those (who are) r?ghtly gu?ded! And how ?s ?t (r?ght) for me not to worsh?p the one Who created me and to Whom you w?ll (all) be returned? Other than H?m, should ? take de?t?es (to worsh?p) whose ?ntercess?on, ?f (God) the Merc?ful were to w?ll harm and loss, would be of no advantage to me and would never rescue me? ? would then surely be ?n clear error. Truly ? bel?eve ?n your Susta?n?ng Lord, so l?sten to me!" ?t was sa?d (to h?m),"Enter the Garden!" He sa?d, "?f only my people knew how my Susta?n?ng Lord has forg?ven me and made me among the noble and honored ones!" After h?m, We d?d not send down upon h?s people any heavenly forces, and We were not (?n need of) send?ng (such). Truly ?t was (noth?ng) except one (m?ghty) shout. Then, suddenly, they were ext?ngu?shed. How sad for (My) servants! A messenger never comes to them except they r?d?cule h?m. Do they not see (how) We have destroyed many generat?ons before them? Because those [destroyed generat?ons] w?ll never return to them: for truly all w?ll be made to be present before Us.

And the dead earth ?s a s?gn for them: We make ?t al?ve and We produce seeds from ?t so that they may eat from ?t. And We make gardens of (date) palm trees and clusters of grapes there?n, and We make spr?ngs to flow forth there?n so they may eat of ?ts fru?t. And the?r hands d?d not produce ?t, (so) w?ll they not, therefore, be grateful? Glory be to the one Who created pa?rs of all th?ngs out of what the earth grows, and out of themselves, and out of what they do not know! And the n?ght ?s a s?gn for them: We throw off the day from ?t (and) then, suddenly, they are ?n darkness. And the sun flows toward ?ts (n?ghtly) abode. That ?s the decree of the Most M?ghty, the All-Know?ng. And (as for) the moon, We have decreed stages for ?t unt?l ?t goes back to (be?ng th?n) as an old palm tree branch. (As for) the sun, ?t ?s not su?table for ?t to reach the moon, and the n?ght cannot overtake the day. And all float ?n a (part?cular) heavenly (orb?t). And (th?s ?s) a s?gn for them: We carry the?r descendants ?n loaded sh?ps; and We have created for them s?m?lar to that (upon) wh?ch they r?de. And ?f We w?ll (?t), We could drown them; then there would be no helper for them (to call) and they would not be rescued, except by some mercy from Us and perm?ss?on to l?ve (and to enjoy l?fe) for a t?me. And when ?t ?s sa?d to them, "Be p?ously caut?ous (toward) what ?s ?n front of you and what ?s beh?nd you so that there may be mercy upon you," [most are heedless] and no s?gn comes to them of the s?gns of the?r Susta?n?ng Lord except they shun ?t. And when ?t ?s sa?d to them, "Spend (on others) from what God has prov?ded you," those who ungratefully deny say to those who bel?eve: "Should we feed one whom God could feed ?f He w?lls? Certa?nly you are ?n (noth?ng) except clear error." And they (also) say, "When ?s (the fulf?llment of) th?s prom?se [about the Hereafter], ?f you are truthful?" They w?ll wa?t (for noth?ng) except one (m?ghty) shout (that) w?ll se?ze them wh?le they are d?sput?ng (w?th each other). Then they w?ll not be able make a w?ll, and they w?ll not return to the?r people.

Th?s ?s the Hell about wh?ch you were prom?sed (?f you d?d so): subm?t to ?ts burn?ng (th?s) Day because you were ungratefully deny?ng (the truth)." (On that) Day We w?ll put a seal on the?r mouths and the?r hands w?ll talk to Us, and the?r feet w?ll test?fy about what (good and bad) they were earn?ng. And ?f We had w?lled, We certa?nly could have effaced the?r eyes. Then they would have str?ven to surpass (one other) on the path, but how would they (have been able to) see? And ?f We had w?lled, We certa?nly could have changed them (?n form) ?n regard to the?r places; then they would not have been able to go away or return.

And to whomever We grant long l?fe, We make h?m bent low ?n natural shape. Do they not then understand? And We d?d not teach h?m [the Prophet] poetry, and ?t ?s not su?table for h?m. Truly ?t [[the Qur'ân]] ?s (noth?ng) except a Rem?nder and a clar?fy?ng rec?tat?on, so that ?t may warn the one who ?s al?ve, and (so that) the Word (of revelat?on) may be ver?f?ed aga?nst ungrateful den?ers. Do they not see (that) We created cattle for them, out of what Our hands have made, so that they are the?r owners? And We made these subm?ss?ve to them, so some of these they r?de and some of these they eat; and, ?n regard to these, there are (other) benef?ts, and beverages (of m?lk). (So) w?ll they not, therefore, be thankful? And they take de?t?es bes?des God, so that they may be helped. (But) these are not able to help them; and [on that Day], ?n regard to them, these (?nv?s?ble) forces w?ll be made to be present [before Us]. So do not let the?r talk cause you sorrow (O Muhammad). Truly We know whatever they do secretly and whatever they do openly. Does man not see (that) We created h?m from sperm? Then, suddenly, he ?s a clear opponent! And he puts forth a s?m?l?tude for Us [that assoc?ates Us w?th created th?ngs] and forgets h?s own creat?on. He says, "Who w?ll rev?ve (the dead from) bones, when those are decayed?" Say: "The one Who or?g?nated them the f?rst t?me w?ll rev?ve them. And He ?s the Knower of every created th?ng, who made f?re for you from the green tree so that, suddenly, you k?ndled (a spark) from ?t. ?s He, the one Who created the heavens and the earth, not able to create the?r l?keness (aga?n)? Yes ?ndeed! And He ?s the Creator, the All-Know?ng. When He w?lls someth?ng (to ex?st), H?s command ?s only that He says to ?t, "Be!" And ?t ?s. Then glory be to the one ?n Whose hand ?s the K?ngdom of all th?ngs! And to H?m you w?ll (all) be returned. [36:1-83]

?n the name of God, the Most Merc?ful, the Most Compass?onate. O you who bel?eve, p?ously and v?rtuously fear God. And let every person see what (good deeds) he (or she) has sent ?n advance for the morn?ng [of the Day of Judgment]. And p?ously fear God. Truly God ?s Most Aware of whatever you do. And do not be l?ke those who have forgotten God, so that he made them forget the?r own souls. (As for them), they are the rebell?ous d?ssolute ones. The compan?ons of the F?re and the compan?ons of the Garden are not equal. (As for) the compan?ons of the Garden, they w?ll be the ones who atta?n success and v?ctory (?n the Afterl?fe). ?f We had sent down th?s Rec?tat?on [[the Qur'ân]] upon a mounta?n, you would surely have seen ?t humbled and spl?t apart from fearful awe of God. And We put forth these parables to mank?nd, so that they may th?nk (carefully). He ?s God, (regard?ng) whom there ?s no d?v?n?ty except H?m, the Knower of the h?dden and the man?fest. He ?s the Most Merc?ful, the Most Compass?onate. He ?s God, (regard?ng) whom there ?s no d?v?n?ty except H?m, the Absolute K?ng, the Most Holy, the G?ver of Peace, the G?ver of Safety, the Guard?an, the Most Powerful, the Subduer, the Most Great. Glory be to God, (far) above what (de?t?es) they assoc?ate (w?th H?m)! He ?s God: the Creator, the Maker, the G?ver of Forms. The most beaut?ful Names belong to H?m. Whatever ?s ?n the heavens and on earth g?ves glory to H?m, and He ?s the Most Powerful, the Most W?se. [59:18-24]

And whoever p?ously and v?rtuously fears God, He makes a way out for h?m (from d?ff?cult?es), and He prov?des for h?m by a means that he cannot est?mate. And whoever rel?es upon God, then He w?ll be suff?c?ent for h?m. Truly God ?s the one Who accompl?shes H?s (decreed) matter. Certa?nly God has determ?ned the (r?ght) amount for everyth?ng.

And truly those who ungratefully deny would almost make you sl?p (and fall) w?th the?r eyes when they hear the Rem?nder. And they say, "Certa?nly he ?s a crazy man!" But ?t ?s (noth?ng) except a Rem?nder for (the be?ngs of) the worlds. [68:51-52]

?n the name of God, the Most Merc?ful, the Most Compass?onate. By the n?ght when ?t covers and h?des, and the day when ?t br?ghtens and reveals, and that wh?ch creates male and female! Truly your efforts are (for) separate (ends). So as for the one who g?ves (?n char?ty) and p?ously and v?rtuously fears (God) and s?ncerely aff?rms the good, We w?ll surely fac?l?tate for h?m (the way) to ease and comfort. But as for the one who ?s m?serly and sat?sf?ed w?th (h?s) wealth (alone) and l?es about the good, We w?ll surely fac?l?tate for h?m (the way) to hardsh?p and d?stress. And h?s property w?ll be of no advantage to h?m when he ?s made to fall headlong. Truly the gu?dance ?s Ours (to g?ve), and truly the Afterl?fe and the former (l?fe on earth) ?s Ours (to rule). Therefore, ? warn you of the F?re (of Hell that) blazes: none w?ll subm?t to ?ts burn?ng except the most m?serable, the one who kept ly?ng and (who) turned (h?s) back (to the truth). But the most p?ously (God-) fear?ng w?ll be kept far from ?t--the one who g?ves of h?s wealth (?n char?ty), pur?fy?ng (the rema?nder thereby); and none w?ll have w?th h?m any (expected) favor of reward, except the eager seek?ng of the (pleased) Face of h?s Susta?n?ng Lord, the Most Exalted. And he w?ll be content soon. [92:1-21]

Your Susta?n?ng Lord has not left you beh?nd (O Muhammad), and He does not d?sfavor you. And certa?nly the Afterl?fe w?ll be better for you than the former (l?fe on earth). And your Lord w?ll g?ve generously to you soon, so that you w?ll be content. D?dn't He f?nd you an orphan (and) then sheltered (you), and f?nd you stray?ng (and) then gu?ded (you), and f?nd you poor (and) then enr?ched (you)? So as for the orphan, do not be oppress?ve.

?n the name of God, the Most Merc?ful, the Most Compass?onate. The pra?se ?s to God as H?s pra?se ?s r?ghtfully deserved. And may the bless?ngs and peace (of God) be upon Muhammad and h?s fam?ly. Now to beg?n: These Noble L?tan?es [[Awrâd-? Sharîf]] are attr?buted to the Polestar of Love, the Helper of those who have reached (the goal), the Master of the (suf?) path, the M?ne of truth, the ?nher?tor of all the Messengers, the Treasury of the secrets of the Susta?n?ng Lord of the worlds, our Master and the Master of the (myst?c) knowers, the Vest?bule of the Glory of God and (of) the creed and the rel?g?on--may God magn?fy h?s (name's) ment?on and remembrance; unt?l ?t arr?ved to th?s poor and ?ns?gn?f?cant one from the above ment?oned holy person together w?th (a transm?ss?on of) sound support. And by means of those connected w?th the Master and Patron (of the Path), ? have also g?ven perm?ss?on to Derv?sh Ahmad M?dhat al-Mawlaw?, w?th the cond?t?on that, after the performance of the pre-dawn obl?gat?ons (of r?tual prayers) and the lofty trad?t?on (of ?nvocat?ons), he should do ?t cont?nuously w?th s?ncer?ty and hum?l?ty. And that he should not rec?te ?t for any a?m other than the sat?sfact?on of the Creator. And that he should not forsake ?t w?thout (hav?ng) an excuse (perm?tted) by the rel?g?ous law. Because, for nov?ces of the Path, to forsake these L?tan?es ?s the cause of cutt?ng off the Water of L?fe of D?v?ne bless?ngs. "And God gu?des whom He w?lls to the stra?ght path" [24:46]. And ? am the poor and ?ns?gn?f?cant Shaykh of the Mawlaw? House of Bahar?ya, Husayn Fakhr? al-Mawlaw?, the son of Hasan Lat?f al-Mawlaw?, the son of Hal?l--may (God) forg?ve them.
