Uzbekistan: Graceful Stairway

Disappearing Stairwell, originally uploaded by jaxxon.

When my heart was hardened
and my courses constrained
I made my hope a stairway
to Your forgiveness
My sin burdened me heavily,
but when I measured it
by Your forgiveness
Your forgiveness was the greater.

-Imam al-Shafi', in his last days on Earth
