A poem of Rabia Al Basri (717-810)

 Very little if any of her work of Rabia survived and reliance is from  secondary sources.  Farid Uddin Attar(1150-1222) in the 12th century revived her work and poems. Her Tomb is in Basra in Iraq and hence the name Rabia Al Basri..

O God, my whole occupation

And all my desire in this world,

Of all worldly things,

Is to remember You.

And in the Hereafter

It is to meet You.

This is on my side, as I have stated.

Now You do whatever You will
