- Shaykh Muhammad Mutawalli Sha'rawi
We all get broken by this transient world, ya Rabb. There's the yearning to embrace the night sky and stars... but they're all too far. Then you remind me that you're closer to me than the veins in my neck. What breaks and what heals without you knowing?
Death of a heart, breath of a heart... seasons, all seasons.

Rabba Sacheya (One True Lord) - Atif Aslam
Aas umeed te khattiyan wattiyan, ve te takiya raat taman vi toon
Meda dekhan bhalan, jachan jochan, samjhan, jaan sunjhaan vi toon
Mede thathray saare monjh munjhari, hanjroon de toufaan vi toon
Hope, wishes, gains, losses, and the night's contemplation are you
You are my looking, my inquiring, my seeking, my understanding and my knowing
You are my cold sighs, my groaning and my sobbing and in you is a storm of my tears
