What can you see?

‎"Patience does not mean to passively endure. It means to be farsighted enough to trust the end result of a process. What does patience mean? It means to look at the thorn and see the rose, to look at the night and see the dawn. Impatience means to be so short-sighted as to not be able to see the outcome. The lover’s of God never run out of patience, for they know that time is needed for the crescent moon to become full."

But subhannallah what a compliment for sister Yasmin to have the words of the beloved teacher of the lover Rumi, mistaken for hers! Subhannallah!

Yeh I would defo recommend it. However, readers discretion is advised! There is a parallel story of a western womans love alongside Rumi and Shams'.

Much of the book was on quality levels tbh, Shams' interractions with the people were highlights :)and of course, the 40 Rules he gives, priceless!
