If you do not act according to your knowledge today, and you do not make amends for days gone-by, you will say tomorrow on the day of Resurrection, “Send us back and we will act virtuously!” And it will be replied, “Fool! You have just come from there!” [Imam Ghazali]

-----------------

A poet said:
“Do you not see how the two renewables (night and day),
Wear us out, while we jest in secret and in public?
Trust not this world and its pleasures,
For it’s homes are not real homes.
And work for your benefit before your death.
And be not deceived by the abundance of friends and brothers.”

-----------------

What has happened to your eyes, (the more) you tell them to stop, the more they continue flowing.
What is the matter with your heart, (the more) you tell it to come to its senses, (the more it is distracted).
Does the lover think that his love can be concealed.
While his eyes are shedding tears and his heart is glowing.
- Excerpt from the ‘Qasidah Burda’ by Imam Busairi

-----------------

O Lord,If tomorrow on Judgment Day
You send me to Hell,I will tell such a secret
That Hell will race from me
Until it is a thousand years away.
O Lord,Whatever share of this world
You could give to me,
Give it to Your enemies;
Whatever share of the next world
You want to give to me,
Give it to Your friends.
You are enough for me.

O Lord, If I worship You
From fear of Hell, burn me in Hell.

O Lord, If I worship You
From hope of Paradise, bar me from its gates.

But if I worship You for Yourself alone
Then grace me forever the splendor of Your Face.

[Rabi´a al-Adawiyya]

-----------------

” O God, Whenever I listen to the voice of anything
You have made -
The rustling of the trees
The trickling of water
The cries of birds
The flickering of shadow
The roar of the wind
The song of the thunder, I hear it saying:
“God is One!
Nothing can be compared with God!”

Rabi’a al-’Adawiyya.
