The Expansion

Have We not opened up your heart
and lifted from you the burden
that almost broke your back?
and We raised high your name.
For with every hardship comes ease:
truly with every hardship comes ease!
So when you are free, be steadfast,
and to your Sustainer turn with love.

-Quran, al-Sharh

  1. Asalaam alaikum, I wanted to tell you that your essay in Critical Muslim “Biography,” touched my heart today, especially the line “I don’t know You. Let me know You.” Tears fell down my cheeks as I read this.
