Pearl of Wisdom

'This community acts upon the Book of Allah for a little while, then it acts upon the practice of the Prophet of Allah for a little while, then it acts upon its own opinion. And when they act based on their own opinion, they themselves go astray and lead others astray too.'

Prophet Muhammad al-Mustafa [sawa]
Kanz al-'Ummal, no. 915

The person of the gnostic ('arif) is with the people, while his heart is with Allah. If his heart were to forget Allah for the time it takes to blink an eye, he would die of yearning for Him. The gnostic is the trustee over the happenings of Allah, the treasury of His secrets, the repository of his lights, the proof of His mercy to creation, the instrument of His sciences and the measure of His favour and justice.

He needs neither people, nor a goal, or nor this world. He has no intimate except Allah, nor any speech, gesture or breath except by Allah, with Allah, and from Allah, for he frequents the garden of His sanctity and is enriched by His subtlest favours to him. Gnosis is a root whose branch is belief.
