The month of fasting has come, celebrate ! :-) by Rumi Celebrate! The month of fasting has come. Pleasant journey to the one Who is in the company of the fasting. I climbed the roof to see the Moon, Because I really missed fasting By heart and soul. I lost my hat while looking at the Moon. the Sultan of fasting made me drunk. O Muslims, I have been drunk since that day I lost my mind. What a beautiful fortune fasting has. What a wonderful glory. There is another secret moon Besides this one. He is hiding in the tent of fasting Like a Turk. Anyone who comes To the harvest of fasting in this month Finds the way to this Moon. Whoever makes his face Resemble pale satin Wears the silk clothes of fasting. Prayers will be accepted in this month. Sighs of the one fasting pierce the sky. The person who sits patiently At the bottom of fasting's well Owns the love of Egypt, like Joseph. O the word which eats the Sahur* meal, Be silent so that anyone Who knows fasting will enjoy fasting. Come, O Shems, the brave one Of whom Tebriz is proud. You are the commander of fasting's soldiers. *Sahur: Meal before dawn during Ramazan fast. Ghazal No. 2344 from the Divan-e Shams-e Tabrizi Translated by Nevit Ergin (from the Turkish translation of the original Persian by Golpinarli) "Mevlana Jelaleddin Rumi: Divan-i Kebir," Volume 18, 2002.
