hell/heaven

I was reading through some notes and I came across this quote:

“I want to pour water into hell and set paradise on fire, so that these two veils disappear and nobody shall any longer worship God out of fear of hell or hope of heaven.”

It is by a famous Sufi woman called Rabi’a.

I absolutely love this quote and just wanted to share it.
