You say the
heart is the Khak and Khoon1,
A work of magic of Kaf and Noon.2
My heart is though in the bosom of mine,
It is yet beyond the pale of world thine.
In this bosom
mine I have a heart though,
Beyond the pale of world, it lies I know’.
Khak and Khoon; mud (dust) and blood.
2. K and N or Kaf and Nun, are two Arabic alphabets. From K and N, God said “Kun”=”be, become” and the whole cosmos came into being. God says ‘be” (Kun) and it “becomes” automatically a reality.
