“O maid-servant of God!…”

O maid-servant of God!
Thank thy Lord for confirming thee unto this wonderful day and new century and giving thee to drink the cup of His love with the hand of His providence. Verily, this is a great favor.
Be not sorrowful on account of the maid-servant of God, Madam ….….. This is a test on the part of God and its wisdom (or reason) is concealed. We ask God to gaze on her with the eye of mercy. Verily, He is the Merciful, the Clement!
