About "Sea Of Fire"
The renowned Persian poetry of the Sufi mystic, Hafez, pulsates with love for humanity, scorns, hypocrisy and medioxrity and unites the mundance with the mystic's quest for divine union.
(translated from Persian, sung in Urdu)

" Distractions and escapes will not calm
The anxietes of the heart,
I have tried to persuade my heart
Many times, but it does not listen.
My heart, you are restless with desire,
While He is so carelessly self - sufficient,
The spells of wordly enchantment that
Bewitch you,
Do not effect Him at all."
