Within You

quranimprints395 views

your remedy is within you
but you do not sense it
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
دواؤك فيك وما تشعر⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
and your illness is from within you
but you do not perceive it
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
وداؤك منك وما تُبصر⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
and you presume you are a small entity
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
وتحسب أنّك جرم صغير⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
but enfolded within you is the larger universe
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
وفيك انطوى العالم الأكبر⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
-—ʿAlī b. Abī Ṭālib, raḍi Allāhu ʿanh
