Imam ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Alawi al-Haddad's (q.s.) Definition of a Murid


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Alawi al-Haddad (q.s.) said, “A disciple is one who is not enslaved by other than God, nor by events; he is one who is neither vanquished by appetites nor dominated by habits.  His words are invocation and wisdom, his silence reflection and heeding examples.  His actions precede his words and are proof of his knowledge.  His inner garment is reverence and gravity, his cloak humility and modesty.”
