— Safi al-Din al-Hali“Turn away from your worries,
And entrust your affairs to the Decree.
Rejoice at the good which will soon be,
You will then forget what has gone by.
Perhaps an issue which upsets you,
Holds at its end what will gladden you.
Perhaps the road will constrict,
And perhaps the Decree will then expand.
Indeed Allah does what He wishes,
So never be the one who turns away (from Him).
Allah is your beautiful source of strength,
So determine things by what has elapsed…”
