When Things Get Tough

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said: “From beautiful poetry is [this] saying of someone:

أَلَا أَيُّهَا الْمَرْءُ الَّذِي … فِي عُسْرِهِ أَصْبَحْ
إذَا اشْتَدَّ بِكَ الْأَمْرُ … فَلَا تَنْسَ (أَلَمْ نَشْرَحْ)

O one who has, to his difficulties, awoken,
When things get tough, and you feel almost broken,
Don’t forget then: “Have We Not Opened….”¹

Al-Ādāb Al-Sharʿiyyah, vol. 1, p. 150.

¹i.e., Surah Al-Sharḥ (tr.)
