The Beginning of Wilayat

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Abu Sa’id Ahmad ibn ‘Isa al-Kharraz (q.s.) said, “When Allah (s.w.t.) Wishes to befriend one of His servants, He Opens for him the gate of His remembrance.  When he experiences the sweetness of remembrance, He Opens for him the gate of nearness.  Then He Raises him into the gatherings of His intimacy.  Then He Settles him upon the throne of unity.  Then He Lifts the veil from him and Leads him into the abode of unity and Reveals for him the Divine Splendour and Majesty.  When his eyes fall upon the Divine Splendour and Majesty, naught of himself remains.  Thereupon, His servant is entirely extinguished for a time.  After this, he comes under Allah’s (s.w.t.) Exalted Protection, free from any pretensions of his self.”
