The Residue of Vanity

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Abu al-Qasim ‘Abd al-Karim ibn Huzan al-Qushayri (r.a.) wrote, in his ar-Risalah al-Qushayriyyah fi ʿIlm at-Taswawwuf, about Shaykh Abu Hafsw ‘Umar ibn Maslamah al-Haddad (q.s.), who came from the village of Kuradabadh, near the gate of the city of Nishapur, toward the direction of Bukhara.  He was a great Sufi master, and leader, who died around 260 AH.

Shaykh Abu Hafsw ‘Umar ibn Maslamah al-Haddad (q.s.) said, “When you see a disciple who likes spiritual concerts, know that there is, in him, a residue of vanity.”
