Shaykh Ibrahim bin Adham Ra used to say, “If the kings of this time were to find out how much peace and contentment this remembrance (zikr) gives us, they would bring their armies to try and take it away from us.
Vegetables are found at vegetable sellers, meat at meat sellers, and clothes from those who sell clothing. Likewise, Allah is found by sitting in the company of the Awliya.
Shaykh Pir Ghulam Habib RA
Prophet SAW said God does not judge you according to your appearance and your wealth, but He looks at your hearts and looks into your deeds
Silence for the ordinary people is with their tongues, silence for the mystics is with their hearts, and silence for lovers is with restraining the stray thoughts that come to their innermost beings.
You drink liquor to forget, I do Zikr to remember
Shaykh Hamza Yusuf
A hundred spiritual masters have spoken concerning Sufism. The first said the same as the last. The modes of expression were different but the meaning was one: “Sufism is dropping all affectation.” And there is no affectation that comes before your own you-ness. The moment you become involved with your own self, you are cut off from Him.
Hazrat ABU SAID IBN ABI-L-KHAYR (RA)
