Ilm (knowledge) is in the hearts of men and not just in the lines of books.

~ Shaykh Afifi al-Akiti

 

“Knowledge without action is madness and action without knowledge is worthless!”

 

“The Giver gives without his asking, as The Generous is only too aware of his situation.”

 

“The rich is one who is content with what he has.”

 

“There is potentially good in the bad, and potentially bad in the good. Hence, don’t despair in your failures and be cautious in your success!”

 

 

A few years back, a student of knowledge gave me this great piece of advice. Thought I’d share because it’s something I reflect on quite often, and for me, it’s a refreshing reminder.

“Sincerity is the key to all good. Focusing the heart on Allah, and realizing that He alone is the source of all the happiness in this life and the next. Sometimes we think that this or that thing will be the “thing” that will bring joy to our hearts, then once we acquire it, the search continues. When will we realize that it is Allah that we are really looking for!?”

Be in harmony with your capacity,
with your created nature
Be in active submission.”


“A secret turning in us
makes the universe turn.
Head unaware of feet,
and feet head. Neither cares.
They keep turning.”

“Rise. Move around the center
as pilgrims wind the Kaaba.
Being still is how one clay clod
sticks to another in sleep,
while movement wakes us up
and unlocks new blessings.”

“We long to disappear
To enter the moment when
we are no longer turning,
but are being turned”

“The Sama is peace for the souls of
the living.
The one who knows this, possesses
peace in her heart.
The one who wants to be awakened,
is the one who sleeps in the middle
of the garden…..”

“Dancing is not rising to your feet painlessly
like a speck of dust blown around in the wind
Dancing is when you rise above both worlds
tearing your heart to pieces and giving up
your soul.”

“Your dance just took me today
and suddenly I began to whirl.
All the realms spun around me
in endless celebration.
My soul lost its grip,
My body shed its fatigue.
Hearing your hands clap and your
drum beat,
I floated up to the heavens!”
