Hazrat Inayat Khan

Pir-O-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan

From the Gayan

Money, what do you signify?
–I am the seal of hearts; a heart once sealed by me will love no one but me.
When you leave, what becomes of your lover?
–I leave behind a mark on my lover's heart which remains always as a wound.
Money, what do you like most?
–Changing hands.
Where is your dwelling-place?
–In the heart of my worshipper.
Where do you accumulate?
–Where I am warmly welcomed.
Where do you stay?
–Where I am adored.
Money, whom do you seek?
–Him who seeks me.
Money, whom do you obey?
–Him who has risen above me; I become his slave and lie as dust at his feet.
