    I would please like to know where this is from, or who said it, because I’m trying to find the full quote, and I remember reading this as part of it as well:
    “…انه يدبر لك في الغيب أمور لو علمتها لبكيت فرحاً و لذابت قلوبكم من محبته”

    Please help!


  2. Imam ibn al Qayyim rahimahullah said it. However, I am unaware of what book it is from. This is the full quote in English:

    “Had Allah lifted the veil for his slave and shown him how He handles his affairs for him, and how Allah is more keen for the benefit of the slave than his own self, his heart would have melted out of the love for Allah and would have been torn to pieces out of thankfulness to Allah. Therefore if the pains of this world tire you do not grieve. For it may be that Allah wishes to hear your voice by way of duaa. So pour out your desires in prostration and forget about it and know; that verily Allah does not forget it.”

    InshaAllah if you need it in Arabic please let me know and I will *try* and find it for you.

    Thank you so much, that is beautiful. If you can somehow find it in Arabic that would be much appreciated, but if not, I understand! It is not for anything in particular besides my own interest/curiosity.

    Thanks again.
