In the hour of grief you turn to Him;
when grief departs you transgress.
In adversity you moan entreating Him;
when ease returns you turn away.
Those who know God remain steady,
but those who doubt exult at times
and become despondent at others.
From "The Bounty of Allah," translated by Aneela Khalid Arshed. 1999. The Crossroad Publishing Company, New York.
