Dzikr is the Key

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Abu al-Jannab Najm ad-Din ibn ‘Umar al-Kubra’ (q.s.) wrote, in Adab as-Suluk, “It is said that dzikr is the key to the ‘alam al-ghayb, and the lamp of the inner world.  Without a key, one cannot enter a house and without a lamp, a dark house is not illuminated.  Hence, the salik should remember God in the way a lover remembers his beloved, and the remembrance must never leave him.”
