Whose dwelling is breast my master has explained Hoo
It is this breath, which enters and exits and nothing else retained Hoo
It is called Glorious name and it is Allah’s secret Hoo
This is life and death ‘Bahoo’ this is Allah’s secret Hoo
Commentary by M. A. Khan
My master has explained to me with truth of certainty that within the breast in the dwelling of Divine Essence. This breathing that keeps a person alive. It is the same breath when taken with dhikr as described in the first poem, which takes person to the state of eternal life. This Dhikr is contemplation of Glorious name of Allah, when it influences the beings, its secrets are unveiled. This dhikr and Glorious name of Allah is the secret of Allah. One discovers it when one reaches the state of annihilation in Allah.
