A Quote by Shams-ud-din Muhammad (Hafiz) on hafiz


A Cushion For Your Head

Just sit there right now Don't do a thing Just rest.

For you separation from God, From love,

Is the hardest work In this World.

Let me bring you trays of food And something That you like to Drink.

You can use my soft words As a cushion For your Head.

Hafiz (1320-1389)
