Points of Annihilation

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

In Iqazh al-Himam fi Sharh al-Hikam, Shaykh Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Ajibah (r.a.) stated, “Shaykh al-Junayd said, ‘It means that the Lord of Truth Makes you die to yourself, and Causes you to live because of Him.’  He also said, ‘You Belong to Allah without any attachment.’  It has been said, ‘It means entering into every lofty trait of character, and exiling from every base trait of character.’  It has also been said, ‘It means noble traits of character which appeared in a noble time along with noble people.’  It has also been said, ‘It means that you do not possess anything, and nothing possesses you.’  It has also been said, ‘It means devoting oneself to Allah (s.w.t.) in accordance with whatever He Wishes.’”
