Don't quit!

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

"Katakanlah, wahai hamba-hambaKu yang telah melampaui batas, janganlah kalian berputus asa dari rahmat Allah. Sesungguhnya Allah mengampuni dosa-dosa kesemuanya. Sungguh, Dialah Maha Pengampun, Maha Penyayang" [39: 53]



Di antara kunci menemukan sentuhan cinta Ilahi adalah dengan kita bertafakur tentang pelbagai hakikat keluasan cinta-Nya itu. Sesungguhnya seluas mana pun rasa cinta dan kasih yang dipersembahkan oleh makhluk kepada al-Khaliq tidak sedikit pun mampu menyaingi setitis kasih Allah terhadap hamba-Nya.

Yang demikian itu adalah sifat Allah Yang Mulia di mana rahmat dan kasih sayang-Nya sentiasa mendahului kemurkaan-Nya.
