ALLAH does not change the state of people, until they change it themselves
Story Of Imam Shafi'i Rahimullah Aleyh
These are the lyrics:
shakautu ila Waki` su'a hifdhi wa arshada-ni an tark al-ma`asi, wa akhbara-ni bi anna ilman nur, wa nur Allah la yu`ta al-`as.
The great Imam ash-Shafi', he went to his teacher Waki` Complaining about the weakness of his memory. He told him, 'abandon rebellion, for knowledge is a light And the light of Allah is not bestowed upon a rebel.
