"When you feel I am nearest, then am I farthest from you. When you feel I am furthest from you, then am I nearest to you."

May God steal from you
All that steals you from Him.
-Rabia al-Adawiyya-

Let me hide in You
From everything that distracts me from You,
From everything that comes in my way
When I want to run to You.
- Rabi’a al-Adawiyya -

It may be that you dislike something, though it is good for you. And it may be that you love something, though it is bad for you. And God knows, and you do not know
~Surah Al-Baqarah v 216
