Rumi: The Visions Now Revealed to You...

The visions now revealed to you,
once they seemed absurd to you.
From ten prisons His bounty released you.
Make not the desert a prison for you.

- Rumi, Mathnawi, 3:3656-57

  2. Wa'alaykum Assalam wa Rahmatullah,

    Alhamdulillah. Actually, the translation is the one I found in the book Bounty of Allah -- not sure whose translation she used...

    Barak Allahu fi kum.

    Wassalam,
