Hold on to the Elders

28th March 2012
Shaykh Sa’dī Shirāzi (Rahimahullāhu) relates an incident of his childhood.

Once my father took me to an `īd function. It so happened that due to the huge crowds I got separated from my father. I began to cry out aloud. My honorable father also became extremely worried and began searching for me. Upon finding me he caught my ear and said: I warned you not to leave my shirt (kurta) but you were negligent!

Shaykh Sa’dī Shirāzi (Rahimahullāhu) comments: This incident of my childhood guided me my entire life; the one who leaves the shirt (kurta) of the elders and pious wanders lost and astray in the fair of this world.
