Prayer Al Basit

Prayer Al Basit Image
Al - Basit

Have We not opened up thy heart,

and lifted from thee the burden that had weighed so heavily on thy back?

And have We not raised thee high in dignity?

And, behold, with every hardship comes ease:

verily, with every hardship comes ease!

Hence, when thou art freed from distress,

remain steadfast, and unto thy Sustainer turn with love.

Sometimes, in order to help, He makes us miserable;

but heartache for His sake brings happiness.

Laughter will come after tears.

Whoever foresees this is a servant blessed by God.

Wherever water flows, life flourishes:

wherever tears fall, Divine mercy is shown.

Rumi, Mathnawi I:817-820, tr. Helminski
