Sufi Aphorism: Door of hope and sadness


The Forgotten Hallway
Originally uploaded by LaserGuided.
If you want the door of hope be opened for you,
then consider what comes to you from your Lord,

but if you want the door of sadness be opened for you,
then consider what goes to Him from you.

- "The Hikam" Sufi Aphorisms
by Ibn Ata'Allah al Iskandari
Late 13th Century C.E.

From the presentation given by Aisha Virginia Gray at 2nd Int'l Conf. on Islamic Spirituality, 06. Singapore.
