Giving & Deprivation


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Taj ad-Din Abu al-Fadhl Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Atha‘illah as-Sakandari (q.s.) wrote the following couplets, in his al-Hikam:

“If when given something, the giving expands you;
And if when deprived of something, the deprivation contracts you;
Then, take that as proof of your immaturity,
And the insincerity of your servanthood.”
