Heaven & Hell


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

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

“O God, if tomorrow, on the Day of Judgement,
If You Send me to Hell,
I will tell such a secret that Hell will break, and run from me,
Until it is a thousand years away.
Give the goods of this world to Your enemies;
Give the treasures of Paradise to Your friends;
But as for me; You are all I need.

O God!  If I adore You out of fear of Hell,
Burn me in Hell!
If I adore You out of desire for Paradise,
Lock me out of Paradise.
But if I adore You for Yourself Alone,
Do not deny me Your Eternal Beauty.”
