Words of the Awliya'

Was having a qabd kind of day so I decided to open up a book and see what my masters Abd Allah Ansari and Ibn Ata'illah had to say to me. May Allah have mercy on them, and benefit us by their wisdom.

O God,
If I have not been a friend,
I have not been an enemy either.
Although I persist in sinning,
still I confess your oneness.
No matter how much you take away from me,
I take nothing away from you.
- Abd Allah Ansari (Munajat)

That which the gnostics seek from God
is sincerity in servanthood
and performance of the rights of Lordship.
- Ibn Ata'illah (Hikam)
