No room in her heart for any other love besides Allah’s.


Rabiah Basri was devoted completely to asceticism. She cared little for life on earth and its comforts, and preferred seclusion. She never married. Once a man expressed a desire to marry her. She replied thanking him for his proposal and added that she had no room in her heart for any other love besides Allah’s.

  3. her reply was much harsher:-)..as i read it in arabic
    she is truly great woman.. i always thought that too much opressed people are hardly to be grateful.. but Saydatuna Rabiaa proved to me that even a slave can be most gratefully to Allahu SWt and have a heart full of Divine Love t than is far deeper from all fortunate people.
