Al-Mumit; 3K

And He it is who grants life and deals death; and to Him is due the alternation of night and day.
Al-Mu’minun 23:80, tr. Asad

Everyone is so afraid of death,
but the real sufis just laugh:
nothing tyrannizes their hearts.
What strikes the oyster shell doesn’t damage the pearl.
Mathnawi I:3495-3496, tr. Helminski
