    Oh Lord of Mohamad and Ali
    If I can run from my shadow
    I would have long ago
    But there is no escape
    It is with me till I learn to destroy it

    It's those given the Kawthar
    That must connect me to God
    And sacrifice it to death

    The evil Qareen must be put to death
    Holy guides instead must become my eyes
    Shrouding me with clothes of light
    My low desire and I have been one
    My evil Qareen and I have been one
    And so in sacrificing it I will have to sacrifice myself
    And so I put head down
    Ready to be slaughtered

    The holy sword of yours
    That initiated Ismael and Isaac
    In the tree of life world
    By their father Ibrahim
    I put my head on the blessed root of the tree
    Ready to be slaughtered like Ismael

    I don't want to exist no more
    How long will I go resisting you?
    O sword of God who's ever been with me
    How long will I say no?
    I'm ready
    Today and not a day more
    To disappear
    And begin the real life
    That has always been meant for me

    Oh Lord of the highest one
    Your seat and authority given to him
    Oh Lord of the great souls that believe
    My head is down
    I have lived an aimless life
    All my achievements with my dark intentions have been failures
    I've failed you in all aspects of life
    But you know my heart has never given up on being with you
    Your proximity deep inside is still my goal
    And so here I am ready to be slaughtered
    My head bows
    Then prostrates
    Tired of the fleeing world that disappears and deceives
    Hating all it calls to and it's lures
    So give permission for the carriers of the Kawthar
    To cure me of the disease I call "I"

    It's also an interpretation of the great Sacrifice of Ismael (a) that occurred by Ibrahim's (a) hands, and also an interpretation of Surah Al-Kawthar.

    It's a Sufi concept of dissolving one's identity into God.

    It is only Fana right? It is not a suicidal poem? I get worried now
