Shaykh Shah Abdul Ghani (RA) used to say, "When Allah سبحانه وتعالى attracts someone, his own heart will come to the conclusion and bear testimony to the fact that Allah سبحانه وتعالى wants him. When this realisation dawns, even if he desires not to go and read Salaah, he will become restless to do so. Even if he decides to stay away from the company of the Ahlullah (saints), his heart will become constricted, he will feel disturbed and restless".
Shaykh Kwaaja Aziz ul Hasan Majzoub (RA) while in Jhounpur, India, asked Shaykh Ashraf Ali Thaanwi (RA), "Shaykh, when someone becomes a Wali (saint) and is being made jazb (attracted), is he aware of this?"
Shaykh Ashraf Ali Thaanwi (RA) replied, "Kwaaja Sahib when you matured, did you realise your maturity or did you have to ask your friends?"
On reaching maturity does one not experience a new lease of life, a rejuvenation feeling flowing though one's veins. In the same way when Allah سبحانه وتعالى makes jazb (attraction) of anyone, He grants his nisbat (connection) to the heart of such a person. Such a person's roohaaniat (spirituality) experiences a new lease of life. With this nisbet (connection) he challenges the entire creation saying, "O people of the world you cannot ensnare my feet with the chains of the world".
