Cleaned Soul and Heart

by Amalia

Ramadan came, but Bairam* is with us.
The lock came, but the key is with us.

We have cleaned soul and heart with fasting.
The dirt which has been with us is cleansed now.

Some stress comes from fasting,
But the invisible treasure of heart is with us.

Ramadan came to the heart’s temple;
The one who created heart is with us.

— Jalal ad-Din Rumi

My sister Mulia who ordered Turkish food for me 2 weeks ago all the way from UK, sent me this poem 🙂

* Bairam is the Turkish name for Eid al-Fitr
