SUFI AND MULLAH
The Mullah and
Sufi are cross in deed,
His eye seldom sees the pitch in its seed.
If this is the faith which I have in me,
To oust me from Kaaba a right has he.1
1. The 2nd idiomatic version of line 1 and 2 is as
“The Mullah and Sufi wear a long face”,
He makes no nuance in sweet or sour trace,
Here nuance means a delicate difference in opinion. 2 Wear a long face; (OR) pull a peevish face.
