The Foundation of Good

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Muhyi ad-Din Abu Muhammad ibn Abu Swalih ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (q.s.) said, “The foundation of good is to follow the Prophet (s.a.w.) in both his words and works.  When the heart of the servant becomes pure, he will see the Prophet (s.a.w.) commanding him to do this and prohibiting him from doing that.  He will become totally a heart.  He will retire with full knowledge.  He will become an innermost being with no publicity, purity with no impurity.  Clear up everything from the heart.  Pulling out the firm mountains requires mattocks of strife and enduring with patience the sufferings and the arrival of tribulations.”
