註釋
The present work is an attempt to pay homage to the devout beings who spent their
lives in the quest of Divine Love (i.e. Love of the True Divinity). It primarily
comprehends the inspirational verses contributed by Arabic, Persian, Punjabi,
Sindhi, Urdu, and Pashtun Sufi poets belonging to diverse cultural and geographical
traditions. In order to pursue the authentic translations of the aforementioned
verses, the contributions made by scholars and academics like Vraje Abramia,
Daniel Karlin, Margaret Smith, A.J. Arberry, Reynold Alleyne Nicholson,
Lochan Singh Buxi, Harjeet Singh Gill, Coleman Barks,
John Moyne, Reynold Nicholson, Lederer Florence, E. H. Whinafield,
Gertrude Lowthian Bell, H. Wilberforce Clarke, Frederick Hadland Davis,
H.T. Sorley, Shahzad Qaiser, and K, B. Advani, have been preferred.
It is unfortunate that some of the renowned Sufi verses of Arabic, Pashto,
Balochi, Kashmiri, Barahwi, Saraiki, and Hindi, have not been translated into
English. The present book has preferably selected the works of those poets
whose authentic translations could be accessed. It has been ensured that the
references be mentioned in every section together with the translated texts so
that readers may seek a direct access to the cited texts when required.
While compiling and editing the content, originality of the translated
texts has been retained, except in some cases where the formal procedures
of text-editing, were required to be pursued. Minor alterations in this regard, hence
center on achieving the objectives of lucidity and comprehensibility.
It is hoped that the attempt shall seek to provide the lovers of poetry a
chance to gain an insight into the magnificent treasury of Sufi W
