This is a beautiful poem that reminded me of the fact that Allah is our only standard.

We don't need to compare ourselves to others, or worry about what will happen to us. What matters is our relationship with Allah.
My brother, do not look back

Your path has been covered in blood

And do not look here or there

And do not look except to the sky -Sayyid Qutb

“Do not look except to the sky…” [Al-‘Izzatulillah]
