In this advice from the Shaykh, we are encouraged to train the heart to be wakeful with the Creator and be asleep in relation to creatures, so much so that we remain intimate with the Lord even when we are in public, so that we may benefit from hikmah through our innermost being.
May Allah be kind towards us this Ramadan and grant us knowledge and skills of the heart so that we could attain a bit of what the Shaykh is saying if not all.Ameen.
Wish y'all (Malaysians) a happy long weekend.
I am excited to be back on this lovely island in the sun - Penang - Pearl of the Orient, yet again.
Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah.
My heart sees my Lord who is Al Kareem.
