He and He

Sahl (al Tustari) said " O poor man! He was and you were not, and He will and you will not be. While you are today, you say: 'I, I'; be now as though you have not been, for He is today as He was."

From Imam Al Ghazali's Book XXXV of The Revival of the Religious Sciences, Ihya' 'ulum al-din. Faith in Divine Unity & Trust in Divine Providence- translated by David B. Burrell, C.S.C.

Alhamdulillah! As I grow older, these words become more and more true :) Soon "I" will not be, but He will always be.

Ya Haqq!
