Paradise is the least a lover can demand in the name of the Beloved whom the Almighty endears the most in the entire cosmos— suggests Jaihoon

by Mujeeb Jaihoon

YOU revealed to endear him so high
YOU confessed to him beyond the Sidra-sky
YOU demand the cosmos to hold him nigh
YOU reward the one who in his love cry

Glory be to Thee!
None like to us as Thee!

Cuffed with pain
Puffed with pride

In the name of Beloved Meem
Have I the right to any favor name

The least, then, I could ask Thee
Is in Paradise a throne for me.
