Al Hallaj was one of the earliest Sufi masters, he lead his life as a dervish wanderer, he would often go into trans where he felt one with all the creation, existence, with God.
He once said “Ana al-haqq” “I am the Truth”–i. Al Hallaj was persecuted and found guilty of heresy. He found an unfortunate and brutal death for further details please see Death of Al Hallaj. Al Hallaj before put to death said: Now stands no more between Truth and me Or reasoned demonstration, Or proof of revelation; Now, brightly blazing full, Truth’s lumination Each flickering, lesser light. Al Hallaj inspired many subsequent Sufi mystics including Rumi.
Here are two poems where Rumi talks about al Hallaj, following is al Hallaj’s poem on God. In the early morning hour, just before dawn, lover and beloved wake and take a drink of water. She ask, aknbar you love me or yourself more? Really, tell the absolute truth. Is it still a stone, or a world made of redness?
It has no resistance to sunlight. The ruby and the sunrise are one. Be courageous and akhbarr yourself. Completely become hearing and ear, and wear this sun-ruby as an earring.
Louis Massignon, Akhbar Al-Hallaj – PhilPapers
Keep digging your well. Water is there somewhere. Submit to a daily practice. Your loyalty to that is a ring on the door. Hallaj said what he said and went to the origin through the hoe in the scaffold.
I cut a cap’s worth of cloth from his robe, and it swamped over me from head to foot. Years ago, Al-ballaj broke a bunch of roses from the top of his wall. From Hallaj, I learned to hunt ions, but I became something hungrier than a lion. I was a frisky colt.
He broke me with a quiet hand on the side of my head. A person comes to him naked.
There’s a fur coat floating in the river. You reach for the coat. It reaches for you. Al-hqllaj a live bear that has fallen in upstream, drifting with the current.
A little part of a story, a hint. Do you need long sermons on Hallaj! The Essential Rumi Coleman Barks. Concealment does not veil Him His pre-existence preceded time, His being preceded non-being, His eternity preceded limit.
If thou sayest ‘when’, His existing has outstripped time; If thou sayest ‘before’, before is after Him; If thou sayest ‘he’, ‘h’ and ‘e’ are His creation; If thou sayest ‘how’, His essence is veiled from description; If thou sayest ‘where’, His being preceded space; If thou sayest ‘ipseity’ ma huwaHis ipseity huwiwah is apart from things.
Other than He cannot be qualified by two opposite qualities at one time; yet With Him they do not create opposition.
He is hidden in His manifestation, manifest in His concealing. He is outward and inward, near and far; and in this respect He is removed beyond the resemblance of creation. He acts without contact, instructs without meeting, guides without pointing. Desires do not conflict with Him, thoughts do not mingle with Him: His essence is without qualification takyeefHis action without effort takleef.
I saw my Lord with the eye of the heart.
