• Maalik Bin Dinaar Rahmatullah ‘Alayh has given us much to ponder upon. He said:

“A companionship which will be of no benefit on the Day of Qiyaamah is futile”.

“A man, who indulges in idle conversation and remembers Allah little, lacks knowledge. His heart is blind. His life is ruined.”

  • Hadhrat Muhammad Waasi’ Rahmatullah ‘Alayh once said:

“A Saadiq (true saint) is not a perfect Saadiq as long as his fear and hope are not equal. (There should be neither a deficiency nor excess in these attributes. A perfect balance between the two is necessary. Excess or deficiency leads to transgression of the limits.)

  • Once Hadhrat Imaam Shaafi Rahmatullah ‘Alayh and Imaam Ahmad Ibn Hambal Rahmatullah ‘Alayh met. While they were conversing, Habib Ajmi Rahmatullah ‘Alayh appeared on the scene.

Imaam Ahmad said to Imaam Shaafi: “I shall ask him something.” Although Imaam Shaafi discouraged Imaam Ahmad, the latter asked Habib Ajmi: “If a person has missed one of the five salaats (and cannot remember which one), what should he do?”

Habib Ajmi replied: “He should repeat all five salaats because he was forgetful and disrespectful to Allah Ta’ala.”

Imaam Shaafi told Imaam Ahmad: “I told you not to question him. These people who have reached Allah Ta’ala have a different approach.”

  • Hadhrat Junaid Baghdadi Rahmatullah ‘Alayh said:

“Follow the Qur’an and the Sunnah. Never follow a man who does not follow the Qur’an and the Sunnah.”

“Abandon the world, the people of the world, Shaytaan and the desires of the nafs.”

“The evil thoughts (waswasah) of the nafs are worse than the waswasah of Shaytaan. Shaytaani waswasah can be neutralised by reciting ‘La haula wa la quwatta Illah billah’, but it requires struggle to overcome the waswasah of the nafs.”

“The hearts of the friends of Allah (Auliya) are receptacles of Divine Mysteries.”

“By renouncing the world and adopting seclusion, Imaan remains safe, the body healthy and the heart happy.”

“Blindness is better for the eye which does not derive lessons from the creation of Allah. Dumbness is better for the tongue which does not make the Thikr of Allah. Deafness is better for the ear which does not listen to the truth. Death is better for the body which does not worship Allah.”

“Tasawwuf means to follow the Qur’an and Ahadith and to become engrossed in ibaadah.”

“The worst evil of a Sufi is bukhl (stinginess).”

“Ikhlaas demands that you do not deem your good deeds to be worthy of acceptance.”

  • After Hadhrat Junaid Rahmatullah ‘Alayh had commenced his public lecture, he said: “I am not giving these discourses out of own free will. Thirty Abdaal have compelled me to do so.”
