As salaamu alaikum

SubhanAllah. The following poem by Rabia al Basri is so beautiful...have a read:

My Greatest Need is You
By: Rabia al Basri

Your hope in my heart is the rarest treasure
Your Name on my tongue is the sweetest word
My choicest hours
Are the hours I spend with You --
O Allah, I can't live in this world
Without remembering You--
How can I endure the next world
Without seeing You ?
I am a stranger in Your country
And lonely among Your worshippers:
This is the substance of my complaint.
