to Thee belongs praise for Thy
for Thy trial which Thou hast turned away from me!
But make not my share of Thy
well-being which Thou hast quickly granted to me,
lest I become wretched through
what I have loved
someone else gain felicity through what I have disliked!96
If this well-being in which 1 pass the day or night
a trial that does not cease
a burden that does not pass away,
then set before me what Thou
hadst set behind
set behind me what Thou hadst set before!
that which ends in annihilation is not great
that which ends in subsistence is not little.
And bless Muhammad and his
