“when the ordainment of Allah descends even the open valley congests”

Part from the days where you used to do as you wish
and restrain your soul when the decree of Allah is ordained.
And don’t despair over the events of the past
for none of the events of the dunya were ever meant to remain.
And be a man who is firm upon his affairs
and whos character is that of pardoning and nobility,
and there is no sadness or happiness that is continuous
just as there is no comfort or pain.

If you are a person who is satisfied with what he has
then you and the owner of all possessions are equal
and upon he who’s open valley death descends upon
then there is no earth or sky to protect you from it
and the earth of Allah is vast but
when the ordainment of Allah descends even the open valley congests.

– Imam Ash-Shafiee
