The Greatest Sickness

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Mawlay Abu ‘Abdullah Muhammad al-‘Arabi ibn Ahmad ad-Darqawi (q.s.) said, “Faqir, the great sickness is love of this world which strikes at the hearts.  It is not a sickness of ulcers which afflict the body.  Rather, this world is a cause for our distance from our Lord.  Had it not been for the love which fills our hearts, we would always be in the Presence of our Lord.  All that veils us from Him is the love of it which dwells in our hearts.”
