I Have Borne It

An extract from Ghazali’s Revival of Religious Sciences:

 

Ali ibn Abi Talib (may Allah honour his face!), whenever worship time came, used to shake, and his face used to change colour. So he was asked, “What is the matter with you, O Commander of the believers?”

And he would say,

“There has come a time of ‘trust’ which Allah ‘offered to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, but they refused to bear it and shrank from it (Quran 33:72) and I have borne it”
