The nature and temperament of the Allahwala (special friends of Allah) is like that of fragrance which floats in the atmosphere due to which all those around cannot help but be perfumed.
Musk emanates a scent by itself,
it needs not the seller to describe it
A man went to the rose garden in search of beautiful blooms.
But found the beauty he craved in the face of the gardener
The potter threw the pot to break it saying he would re-shape it to a better form.
Thus when the heart is broken, it becomes the receptacle of Allahs mercies and divine reflections.
Shaykh Maseehullah Khans arrival in Jalalabad was described thus:
The disruption of the nightingale breathed new life into the garden.
Otherwise every bud was entranced in the stupor of sleep.
Someone paid the following tribute to Haji Muhammad Faruq sahib ra after his death:
In my abode of darkness the night of sorrow still prevails.
There was one lamp to herald the dawn, but that too has now gone out
The wall that cast such cool shadows has now collapsed
The characteristic of fire and the characteristic of the love of Allah subhaanahu wataala is the same. Fire burns from house to house and the love of Allah subhaanahu wataala from heart to heart.
A fish will only find ease, comfort and rest when in water; water above it, below it, in front of it, behind it, around it. Even if one part of it is left out of water it will remain restless until it dies. Similarly one whose single limb or organ is involved in sin one deprives it of enjoying immersion in the sea of proximity to Allah subhaanahu wataala and it causes ones soul to be in constant agitation, lacking in solace, ease and comfort.
Those who have a connection with Allah subhaanahu wataala have no fear of anyone. A goat who has a lions protection in the jungle will not fear a tiger or an elephant.
Everything God made valuable in the world is covered and protected;
Pearls are found deep down at the bottom of the ocean, protected in a shell. Womens bodies are sacred, far more precious than the pearls and they should be covered.
Only a fool saves himself from major sins and not from the minor ones, when both lead to the fire.
Only a fool saves himself from a burning coal and not from a spark when both can start a fire.
Only a fool would stand and watch someone elses ship sinking while his own is in the same situation.
The only thing a traveller has in mind is his destination, not decoration
The human heart is a ruler if you opt to be ruled and a slave if you opt to rule
