[Sunlight] Reap the benefit of God's beneficence



Reap the benefit of God's beneficence in these words:
"For my Sustainer does not love excessive rejoicing."
Rein in your joy for all He causes to come to you,
for the gifts that preoccupy you
divert you from Him.
Rejoice in Him, rejoice in nothing but Him.

Min rabâh Allâh kûnû râbihîn
an "Rabbi lâ yuhibbu al-farihîn"
Ifrahû hawnan bi-mâ âtâkum
kullu âtin mushaghghil alhâkum
Shâd az Vay shaw ma-shaw az ghayr Vay
U bahârast va degar-hâ mâh-e Day

-- Mathnawi III: 505-507
