Ramadan Day 10: On Whom You Spend Generously

Peace, one and all…

turkish-islamic-calligraphy-2

The lover is not the one
who hopes for a recompense from his beloved
or seeks some object
In truth, the lover is the one
who spends generously on you,
not the one on whom you spend generously.

Ibn Ata’illah, Hikam 243
