My choicest hours

6532

Your hope in my heart is the rarest treasure,
Your Name on my tongue is the sweetest word,
My choicest hours
Are the hours I spend with You –

O! Allah, I can’t live in this world
Without remembering You–
How can I endure the next world
Without seeing Your Face?

I am a stranger in Your country,
And lonely among Your worshipers:

This is the substance of my complaint.

– Rabia al-Adawiyyah rahimahu Llah –
