Sayyidina Abdullah ib Mas’ud radiAllaahu anh said that Sayyidina ‘Umar ib Khattab radiAllaahu anh often delivered the Khutbah and would say from the pulpit the following Arabic couplets:
حفض عليك فان الا مور. بكف الالد مقا ديرها
فليس يا تيك منهيها. ولا تا صرعنك مامورها
Be easy to yourself for the destinies of all works are in the Hands of Allah.
That which Allah hath prevented cannot come to you and that He hath ordered cannot fail to come to you.
This post relates closely to the previous one. Perhaps the Arabic speakers among us can tell me if the Arabic is written correctly (i.e. no skipped letters, etc.), inshaAllah.
