What the Beloved Commands

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ 

Imam Abu al-Hasan ‘Ali ibn ‘Abdullah ash-Shadzili (q.s.) said, “My Beloved Commanded me, ‘Do not move your feet except where you hope for the Reward of Allah and do not sit except where you are generally safe from disobeying Allah and do not choose for yourself other than the one who provides you with certainty.  And they are very few indeed.’”  He also said, “Do not accompany the one who prefers his nafs to you.  He is blameworthy.  Do not accompany the one who prefers you to himself.  He is rarely constant.  Rather keep the company of the one who, when he remembers, remembers Allah.  Allah Enriches by him when he is present and Represents him when he is absent.  His dzikr illuminates the hearts and his witnessing is the keys of the unseen worlds.”
