Imam has left several works on jurisprudence, Hadith, Quranic interpretation, philosophy and mysticism.

The great leader's genuine teachings and works would continue to guide the generations to come in coming decades. 


 The following is a sample of his mystical verses:


The Path of Nothingness 

Save your love there is nothing in our hearts.

Your love was kneaded into our clay.

The Asfar and Shifa of Ibn Sina  did not untie

Our difficulty with all their hairsplitting disputations.

Tell the shaykh who called my way invalid,

(He will sneer at your truth, our invalidity)

If his wayfarer passes some stations,

Our station shall be path of nothingness itself.

A hundred caravans of the heart pack up to their destination,

But our negligent heart was left behind.

If Noah was saved from drowning and found his way to shore,

The drowning itself is our shore.
