When the Beloved Drives You Away


AsSalamu'alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu,

On my recent post about our Hajj Journey, nameeman (a reader) reminded me of a post I made last year when we were denied hajj visas...the poem by Mawlana Rumii beautiful and much worth reading:

Say, do not despair because the Beloved drives you away;
if He drives you away today, will He not call you back tomorrow?
If He shuts the door on you, do not go away;
be patient there, for after patience He will seat you in the place of honour.
And if He bars against you all ways and passages,
He will show you a secret way, which no man knows.
