I am a Doorkeeper of the Rabia

I am fully qualified to work as a doorkeeper,
and for this reason:

What is inside me, I don't let out:
What is outside me, I don't let in.

If someone comes in,
he goes right out again.
He has nothing to do with me at all.

I am a Doorkeeper of the Heart,
not a lump of wet clay..!

~ Rabi'a Al-'Adawiyya
