Imam Abu ‘Abdullah Muhammad ibn Idris ash-Shafi‘i (r.a.) on Loss

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Abu Abdullah Muhammad ibn Idris ash-Shafi’i (r.a.) wrote, in his Diwan:

“Never be saddened by what you lose in this world,
When you have Islam, and good health with you.
If you lose something that you were rushing towards,
Then the fact that you lost it, is sufficient.”

لا تأس في الدنيا على فائت
وعندك الإسلام والعافية
إن فات أمر كنت تسعى له
ففيهما من فائت كافيه
