As often as we can, Marryam and I both try to read one of the duas by Ibn Al-‘Arabi as in the book The Seven Days of The Heart translated by P. Beneito and S. Hirtenstein, which this quote is from. Without doubt, this is one of Marryam’s favourite books!
The duas in this book are beautiful in themselves, and I can read them over and over again and still find new inspiration from them – it really helps elevate my duas from ‘Please Allah let us go on a holiday to Spain next month’ to something quite a lot more meaningful 😀
The quote lettered above is from this line in the book:
Envelop me in the protective covering of Your Light, by which You unveil for me everything that is veiled, and by which You conceal from all the envious and the deluded.
