Longing for Madina

It is we who, like the tulip in the desert of Madina,
Bear in our heart the scar of longing for Madina.
Passionate longing for paradise may dissappear from the wise man's head, but
It is not possible that the passionate longing for Madina should leave him.

Jami, quoted by Schimmel
