A Coin in Each Hand

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ 

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

“I spun some yarn to sell for food,

And sold it for two silver coins.

I put a coin in each hand,

Because I was afraid,

That if I put both together in one hand,

This great pile of wealth might hold me back.”
