A Wali’s Elevation
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Shaykh Bishr ibn Harits al-Hafi (q.s.) said, “I saw the Prophet (s.a.w.) in a dream. He asked me, ‘Bishr, do you know why Allah (s.w.t.) has Raised you up from among your fellows?’
‘No, O Messenger of Allah,’ I replied.
He said, ‘Because of your adherence to my sunnah, your service to the righteous, your advice to your brethren and your love of my companions and my family. This is what has brought you to the degree of the pious.’”
