Shaykh Muhammad al-Hafizh al-Miswri (q.s.) on the Inheritance of Prophets

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Muhammad al-Hafizh al-Miswri (q.s.) said, “The Prophet (s.a.w.) said, ‘The men of learning are heirs of the prophets, and the prophets did not leave behind an inheritance of dananir or darahim; they left only knowledge.  So, whoever acquires knowledge, he acquires an abundant share.’

There is no doubt that part of the knowledge that the prophets passed on as inheritance is the knowledge of ridding the soul or inner self of the layers of darkness, purifying it from the turbidity of matter and guiding it to the spiritual world, to the abstractness of the higher kingdom of God.  The soul will then become pure so that no matter can have an effect on it.  Rather, its purity will refine the thick-skinned ones; its flowing secret will revive the lifeless.  It is the Lord Himself Who Aids such a soul with His Divine Light; Illuminating its vision and powers so that it sees, hears, settles, moves, knows, takes and gives under the Divine Guardianship of Allah Ta’ala.  In this place of proximity, God Chooses the soul, Purifies it, Loves it and Draws it ever closer to Him.  And this is the station of special love and sublime proximity.”
