Peace, one and all…
I do not tell you to give up effort,
but you need to remember who the Doer is;
you can trade only with God’s capital,
and when you offer it, in return,
you are taken in as one returning home.
In the beginning you have Him only,
and so it will be at the end,
and in the middle there is no one else.
Abu al-Hasan al-Kharaqani
