The Swadiq


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

A swadiq is an upright person.  Shaykh Muhyi ad-Din Abu Muhammad ibn Abu Swalih ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (q.s.)said, as recorded in Jila’ al-Khathir, “For the swadiq, there can be no movement to the rear.  He is always moving to the fore.  He has a front without a back. He never ceases to behave with honest sincerity, so that his speck of dust eventually becomes a mountain, his drop of water an ocean, his tiny portion a great deal, his lamp a sun, and his shell a kernel.

If you ever have the good fortune to come across a swadiq, you must stick close to him always, wherever he may lead you.  If you are fortunate enough to come across a person who holds the remedy to cure your sickness, you must stick close to him at all times.  If you are fortunate enough to come across a person who can show you how to recover the opportunities you have wasted on nothing better than garbage, you must stick close, really close, to him.”
