The grass of God's garden

 

I saw bouquets of fresh roses

Tied upon a cupola of grass

I asked:" what is despicable grass

To sit also in the line of the roses?"

 

The gras wept and said: " Hush!

Companionship doesn't obliterate nobility

Although I have no beauty, color, and perfume,

Am I not after all the grass of God's garden? "

How could I ever thank my Friend?

How could I ever thank my Friend?
No thanks could ever begin to be worthy.
Every hair of my body is a gift from Him;
How could I thank Him for each hair?
Praise that lavish Lord forever
Who from nothing conjures all living beings!
Who could ever describe His goodness?
His infinite glory lays all praise waste.
Look, He has graced you a robe of splendor
From childhood’s first cries to old age!
He made you pure in His own image; stay pure.
It is horrible to die blackened by sin.
Never let dust settle on your mirror’s shining;
Let it once grow dull and it will never polish.
When you work in the world to earn your living
Do not, for one moment, rely on your own strength.
Self-worshiper, don’t you understand anything yet?
It is God alone that gives your arms their power.
If, by your striving, you achieve something good,
Don’t claim the credit all for yourself;
It is fate that decides who wins and who loses
And all success streams only from the grace of God.
In this world you never stand by your own strength;
It is the Invisible that sustains you every moment.

Rabia Al Adawiya

"I have two ways of loving you; a selfish one and another way that is worthy of you. In my selfish love, I remember You and You alone. In that other love, you lift the veil and let me feast my eyes on Your living face."

***********

"The real work is in your heart, wake up your heart! Because when the heart is completely awake, then it needs no friend."
