بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
If my thanking God for His Blessings is a Blessing,
Then I must thank Him in the same measure again.
How can one thank Him save by His Grace,
As time goes on, and life goes by?
If a good thing comes, I rejoice heartily,
If a bad one comes, I receive a reward.
In both cases He gives me a Gift too large
For the minds of men, and the land and sea.
From Imam al-Bayhaqi (r.a.), 'The Seventy-Seven Branches of Faith'
