Imam Ali’s will to his son Hassan
(part ten)

So try to grasp my will, O my son. Know that indeed the Possessor of death is the same as the Possessor of life; the Giver of death is the same as the Creator; the Restorer is the same as the Annihilator; and the Recoverer [of afflictions]...
Nahj al-Balaghah, Letter 31

With His kindness and wrath
I’m seriously in love
Isn’t that strange?
They’re two opposites thereof. 
Thus our sweetness in this world and the next 
Is veiled by that which is sour and vexed.

Rūmī, Mathnawī, vol. 1, lines 1580 and 1771
