The other day, I received a card from a dear friend of mine in Norway. Inside, she wrote a beautiful quote by Mevlana Rumi as a reminder. The quote captivated me, so I cannot help but share it here:

My heart is so small
it’s almost invisible.
How can You place
such big sorrows in it?

“Look,” He answered,
“your eyes are even smaller,
yet they behold the world.”

~ Mevlana Rumi

The above quote reminds me of Allah’s promise to us in the Majestic Qu’ran:

“Allah does not burden any human being with more than he is well able to bear: in his favour shall be whatever good he does, and against him whatever evil he does. O our Sustainer! Take us not to task if we forget or unwittingly do wrong! “O our Sustainer! Lay not upon us a burden such as Thou didst lay upon those who lived before us! [2:286]
