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.”
