The Journey of the Servants to the Place of Return (Seyr al-‘Ibād ilā al-Ma‘ād) is an allegory mathnavi that suggests a man’s spiritual purification through a deeper understanding of creation, the influence of the planets, and the four elements on his thoughts and behaviors. Their effect will change a man’s life after his death if he does not control them. By taming the negative traits, he may enjoy the bliss of paradise if he does not control them, and may enter into the fire of hell. This mystical/literary work offers practical methods that may eliminate negative traits in an individual’s soul if he practices them. The poet emphasizes the necessity of following a master who guides the pupil through a spiritual journey to achieve perfection and become one with the Creator.
