Nizam al-Din Fawa'id al-Fu'ad

Nizam al-Din, Fawa'id al-Fu'ad


The master continued, "If you put oil, pepper, garlic and onion in a cauldron, and merely add water, you have not made a stew. The basis for a stew is meat; the other ingredients are optional. Similarly, spiritual progress depends on detaching yourself from material posessions; other virtuous practices are optional."

Nizam al-Din, "Fawa'id al-Fu'ad"

Ghazali al-Munqidh min ad-Dala

Ghazali, "al-Munqidh min ad-Dalal"

Yet I realized that my only hope of attaining eternal bliss was by detaching myself from all worldly desires, and by honouring God in every aspect of my life. I knew that I had to leave the mansion of deception, and set out with all vigour towards the house of God. I had to turn away from wealth and position, and flee from all the worldly obligations that consumed my time.

Qur'an, An-Nahl, Surah 16:75

Qur'an, An-Nahl, Surah 16:75

God gives this parable, "On the one hand there is a helpless slave, the property of his master. On the other hand there is a man whom we have greatly blessed; this man is generous both in secret and openly." Are the two alike? All praise is due to God! Yet most people do not understand.
