Mâil Oldum

Mail oldum bahçesinde hurmaya
Takatim kalmadı asla durmaya
Ol Medine ravzasını görmeye
Görmeyince alma ya Rab canımı

Hak nasib eylesin biz de varalım
O çöllerin safasini sürelim
Ravzasin eşiğine yüz sürelim
Sürmeyince alma ya Rab canımı

Mevlam nasibetse binsem mahfeye
Dolanı dolanı çıksam Safaye
Hacılarla bile dursam Vakfeye
Durmayinca alma ya Rab canımı

Aşık olduk sıfatına zatına
Mevlam bindirse de aşkin atına
Sağ yanımda altın oluk altına
Girmeyince alma ya Rab canımı

Aşık olan bu faniyi n'eylesin
Salat ü selamla yer gök inlesin
Medine'ye varıp mesken eylesin
Varmayınca alma ya Rab canımı

Derviş Yunus söyler bu sözü candan
Ya Rabbi ayırma dinden imandan
Okusam Ravza’da Sure Kur’an’dan
Ermeyince alma ya Rab canımı

I Fell in Love

I Fell in Love with my Prophet’s Date Garden
I don't have the patience to wait any longer
To see the Rawdha in Medina
Don't take me to You before I do, oh Lord

May Allah allow me to get there
Let me enjoy the serenity of its desert
Let me lay my head on the doorsill of his Rawdha
Don't take me to You before I do, oh Lord

May Allah allow me to mount on camel
Let me stroll on the windy path to Safa
Let me stand in line with other Hajjis on Arafah
Don't take me to You before I do, oh Lord

I fell in love with your essence and qualities
May Allah allow me to mount the steed of love
On my right hand side the Golden Spout
Don't take me to You before I stand under it, oh Lord

What would a lover need in this temporary world?
Let my glorification of Him shake the heavens and earth 
Let me reach Medina and make it my home
Don't take me to You before I do, oh Lord

Dervish Yunus speaks these words from the heart
Oh Lord do not separate us from religion and faith
Let me read Surahs from the Qur’an
Don't take me to You until I am worthy, oh Lord

**********

I was honored to have dates in His Garden
I'm very tired but won't stop
I want to see His Rawza
Don't take my life before I see it

May Allah let us reach there
Let us enjoy the desert travel
Let us rub our face on the doorstep of His Rawza
Don't take my life before we rub it

Let me ride the north wind, let me turn
