Feriduddin Attar’s Musibet-Nâme supplication in presence of God’s indifference towards good or evil …

And if I placed a world of obedience at Your feet,
Why would You need it, being content with Yourself ?
And if I bore witness to a world full of sins,
What would You do with it, being so rich ?
Because good comes from You without reason,
No misfortune will fall those who speak ill of You.
As all that You do is without reason,
Have mercy without reason, O ruler of worlds.
Though unbelief and sin weigh heavily on me,
A word of Your forgiveness, and I will be free.
If you can give me but an atom of joy,
Then do it, do You not always give without reason ?
