How wondrous is the matter of the believer, for all that happens to him is good: if good befalls him he shows gratitude, and it is best for him; and if ill befalls him he shows patience, and it is best for him.
Love is not love that alters
When it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
Oh no, it is an ever fixed mark
That looks on tempest and is never shaken.
I am amazed at the seeker of purity
When time for polishing comes
Complaints of harsh treatment
Love is a lawsuit
Without evidence, you will not win
My son, when one beats the rug
The beating is not intended against the rug
But against the dust inside the rug
My son, that harsh treatment
Is not intended against you
But against the ill qualities inside you
