To Turn Away from the World

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ 

A man asked Imam Abu al-Hasan ‘Ali ibn ‘Abdullah ash-Shadzili (q.s.), “Why do I see that people esteem you when I do not see that you perform a lot of action?” 

He replied, “For one year, Allah Obliged it on His Rasulullah (s.a.w.) and I clung to it.” 

“What is it?” he asked. 

He replied, “Turning from you and from your worldly things.”
