Quote of Imaam ash-Shaafi’ee (rahimahullah)

دَعِ الأَيَّامَ تَفْعَل مَا تَشَاءُ وطب نفساً إذا حكمَ القضاء
وَلا تَجْزَعْ لنازلة الليالي فما لحوادثِ الدنيا بقاءُ
وكنْ رجلاً على الأهوالِ جلداً وشيمتكَ السماحة ُ والوفاءُ
وإنْ كثرتْ عيوبكَ في البرايا وسَركَ أَنْ يَكُونَ لَها غِطَاءُ
تَسَتَّرْ بِالسَّخَاء فَكُلُّ عَيْب يغطيه كما قيلَ السَّخاءُ
ولا تر للأعادي قط ذلا فإن شماتة الأعدا بلاء
ولا ترجُ السماحة ََ من بخيلٍ فَما فِي النَّارِ لِلظْمآنِ مَاءُ
وَرِزْقُكَ لَيْسَ يُنْقِصُهُ التَأَنِّي وليسَ يزيدُ في الرزقِ العناءُ
وَلا حُزْنٌ يَدُومُ وَلا سُرورٌ ولا بؤسٌ عليكَ ولا رخاءُ
وَمَنْ نَزَلَتْ بِسَاحَتِهِ الْمَنَايَا فلا أرضٌ تقيهِ ولا سماءُ
وأرضُ الله واسعة ً ولكن إذا نزلَ القضا ضاقَ الفضاءُ
دَعِ الأَيَّامَ تَغْدِرُ كُلَّ حِينٍ فما يغني عن الموت الدواءُ

Part from the days where you used to do as you wish
And restrain your soul when the decree of Allah is ordained
And don’t despair over the events of the past
Fore none of the events of the dunya were ever meant to remain
And be a man who is firm upon his affairs
And whose character is that of pardoning and nobility
And there is sadness or happiness that is continuous
Just as there is there is no comfort or pain
If you are a person who is satisfied with what he has
Then you and the owner of all possessions are equal
And upon he whose open valley death descends upon
Then there is no earth or sky to protect you from it
And the earth of Allah is vast but
When the ordainment of Allah descends even the open valley congests.
