The Murid Readies Himself

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Abu Hamid Muhammad ibn Muhammad al-Ghazali (r.a.) said, “The murid has only to make himself ready by a thorough purifying, by summoning intention along with a sincere desire, by utter thirsting, and by watching with constant expectation for the Mercy which Allah may Grant to him.  For prophets and saints have had divine things Revealed to them, and the light has flooded their breasts, not by learning and study of books but by asceticism in this present world, by cutting the self off from all of its ties, by emptying the heart of all of its busying affairs, and by advancing with the utmost concern toward Allah (s.w.t.); for, whoever Belongs to Allah (s.w.t.), Allah (s.w.t.) Belongs to him.”
