Hardship may dishearten at first,
but every hardship passes away.
All despair is followed by hope;
all darkness is followed by sunshine.
Why should I grieve because of a thorn?
Once it had made laughter known to me.
Whatever you lost through the stroke of destiny,
know it was to save you from adversity.
One small affliction keeps off greater afflictions;
one small loss prevents greater losses.
I saw grief drinking a cup of sorrow and called out,
"It tastes sweet, does it not?"
"You've caught me," grief answered,
"and you've ruined my business,
how can I sell sorrow when you know it's a blessing?"
Nämä runot ovat peräisin Jannah.org-sivustolta, jossa on paljon muitakin islamilaisia runoja. Nämä ylläolevat pääsivät mukaan blogiini, koska niissä on mielestäni positiivinen ja pohjavire ja toivoa antava sanoma.
