TESTS AND DIFFICULTIES
Thou Whose tests are a healing medicine to such as are nigh unto
Thee, Whose sword is the ardent desire of all them that love Thee,
Whose dart is the dearest wish of those hearts that yearn after
Thee, Whose decree is the sole hope of them that have recognized Thy
truth! I implore Thee, by Thy divine sweetness and by the splendors
of the glory of Thy face, to send down upon us from Thy retreats on
high that which will enable us to draw nigh unto Thee. Set, then,
our feet firm, O my God, in Thy Cause, and enlighten our hearts with
the effulgence of Thy knowledge, and illumine our breasts with the
brightness of Thy names.
s there any Remover of difficulties save
God? Say: Praised be God! He is God! All are His servants, and
all abide by His bidding!
