‘Araftul Hawa Lyrics - Sami Yusuf

By: 

I only knew love when I knew love of Thee,
I sealed up my heart against Thy enemy.

I stood long in converse with Thee, who doth see
My heart’s inner secrets, but Thou I don’t see.

My love is twin loves, yet the twain are for Thee,
The first’s for Thy love, and the other’s for Thee.

And as for the first, which is love of Thy love:
Remembrance complete, not distracted from Thee.

‘Araftul-haw? mudh ‘araftu haw?k
Wa-’aghlaqtu qalb? ‘al? man ‘?d?k
(I only knew love when I knew love of Thee,
I sealed up my heart against Thy enemy.)

And as for the second: my true love of Thee,
I see Thou as present in all that I see.

All praise to Thy name, and no praises for me,
For Thine is the glory in all unity.

‘Araftul-haw? mudh ‘araftu haw?k
Wa-’aghlaqtu qalb? ‘al? man ‘?d?k
(I only knew love when I knew love of Thee,
I sealed up my heart against Thy enemy.)

’U?ibbuka ?ubbayni, ?ubba l-haw?
Wa-?ubban li-’annaka ’ahlu l-lidh?k

(My love is twin loves, yet the twain are for Thee,
The first’s for Thy love, and the other’s for Thee.)

Fa-’amma l-ladh? huwa ?ubbul-haw?
Fa-shughl? bi-dhikrika ‘an man siw?k

(And as for the first, which is love of Thy love:
Remembrance complete, not distracted from Thee.)

Wa-’amma l-ladh? ’anta ’ahlu l-lahu
Fa-lastu ’ara l-kawna ?att? ’ar?k

(And as for the second: my true love of Thee,
I see Thou as present in all that I see.)

Fa-la l-?amdu f? dh? wa-l? dh?ka l?
Wa-l?kin laka l-?amdu f? dh? wa-dh?k

(All praise to Thy name, and no praises for me,
For Thine is the glory in all unity.)
