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.”
