Shaykha Rabi’ah al-‘Adawiyyah (q.s.) on the Real Goal

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykha Rabi’ah al-‘Adawiyyah (q.s.) said:

“I carry a torch in one hand,
And a bucket of water in the other:
With these things,
I am going to set fire to Heaven,
And put out the flames of Hell,
So that voyagers to Allah can rip the veils,
And see the Real Goal.”
