This Sabad is by Sheikh Farid (1173-1265) and is set in Rag Asa, a devotional musical framework. The essence of the composition lies in its contemplation of contrasting states. The Sabad delves into a juxtaposition between individuals immersed in Love and those untouched by it. Similarly, it parallels those saturated with Love and those lacking in it.

Those enveloped in Love perceive unity – seeing the One in all, recognizing the Creator within Creation and the Creation within the Creator; all facets of existence converge into a singular whole through this lens of perception. Conversely, those who neglect their inner Light, failing to forge a connection or acknowledge the Creator's role, inadvertently weigh down the world, assuming the role of a burden upon the earth.
