Shaykh ibn ‘Atha’illah as-Sakandari (q.s.) on the Distance between the Seeker & the Sought

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh ibn ‘Atha’illah as-Sakandari (q.s.) wrote, in al-Hikam, “If it were not for the battlefields of the lower selves, there would be no travel for the travellers on the Path since there is no distance between you and Him that your journey would shorten and there is no separation between you and Him that your reaching Him would eliminate.”
