The Obligation of Obedience


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Taj ad-Din Abu al-Fadhl Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Atha’illah as-Sakandari (q.s.) wrote, in al-Hikam, “He Knew that His slaves are not self-motivated in seeking Him; so, He Obligated for them obedience to Him.  He Pushed them towards Him with the chains of obligation.  Your Lord is Amused by a people who are pushed to Paradise in chains.”
