Worship of God

“O my Lord, if I worship You from fear of Hell,
burn me in Hell,
and if I worship You in hope of Paradise,
exclude me thence,
but if I worship You for Your own sake,
then withhold not from me Your Eternal Beauty…”

Rabi’ah al’Adawiya,
Muslim & Sufi mystic poet born in Basra, Iraq
(717 – 801 CE)

This is just so beautiful…
