Responding to God's Language


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Abu Hamid Muhammad ibn Muhammad al-Ghazali (r.a.) wrote, in Ihya’ ‘Ulum ad-Din, “To be able to respond to God’s Language in both its modalities, the heart of man thus needs His Grace and Providential Guidance; and although He Singles out for His Grace whom He Wills, and Guides whom He Wills, man may render himself more deserving of this Gift by cultivating a policy of inward strife against his hawa’, the instinctive, animal propensity to immediate gratification, which is the domain and instrument of Satan.”
