Fidelity in Faith


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Muhyi ad-Din Abu Muhammad ibn Abu Swalih ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (q.s.) said, “O young man!  Do all that you can to obey Allah (s.w.t.), your Lord.  Make strenuous efforts to give to the person who deprives you, maintain a connection with the person who cuts you off, and pardon the person who wrongs you.  Make every effort to ensure that your body is with the servants, but your heart is with the Lord of the servants.  Do all that you can to speak the truth and never tell lies.  Make strenuous efforts to work with sincerity and avoid hypocrisy.  Luqman the Wise used to say, ‘O my son, do not put on a show to impress people for you will not meet Allah (s.w.t.) as long as your heart is insincere.’”
