“O maid-servant of God!…”

O maid-servant of God!
Verily, the Lord of Hosts calleth thee from the absence of existence (or non-existence) and sayeth:
“Come, O My maid-servant, to My Kingdom!
Come, O My attracted one, unto My Great Paradise!
Come, O My maid-servant, unto My Sublime Heaven!
Come, O My attracted one, unto the place of My Glorious Throne.”
Therefore turn, with a heart throbbing and tears flowing, unto the Beauty of El-Abha, so that thou obtaineth the great favor and drinketh from that wine, and tasteth the fruits of the Paradise of El-Abha.
