Magnificent Character

Peace, one and all…

Hattat Mehmed Hafiz Kirmani

‘And assuredly you possess a magnificent character’ (68:4)

‘Truly anger and harshness come from the servant’s dependence on his own strength (quwwa). However, when he gives up relying on his own strength, weakness will take up residence in his soul, and this will generate mercy and benevolence in him, which is to take on the charateristics of the Lord, may His majesty be magnified’.

Sahl ibn Abdullah al-Tustari, Tafsir al-Tustari
