The Rarest Treasure


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

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

“Your hope in my heart is the rarest treasure,
Your Name on my tongue is the sweetest word.
My choicest hours,
Are the hours I spend with You -
O God, I cannot live in this world,
Without remembering You -
How can I endure the next world,
Without seeing Your Face?
I am a stranger in Your Country,
And lonely among Your worshippers:
This is the substance of my complaint.”
