Weighing Our Deeds & States

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.

He recorded that Shaykh Abu Hafsw ‘Umar ibn Maslamah al-Haddad (q.s.) said, “Whoever does not weigh his spiritual states, and deeds, at every moment, against the Book and the sunnah, while at the same time being suspicious of his true motives, should not be counted among the true.’’
