THE BALM OF THE HEART
Hadhrat Ibraahim Khawwaas (rahmatullah alayh) said: “The balm of the heart is to be found in
five acts:
 In tilaawat of the Qur’aan Majeed and contemplation on it.
 Abstention from satiation, i.e. not filling the stomach.
 Spending the night time in ibaadat.
 Supplicating with humility and tears to Allah Ta’ala in the morning (i.e. as Subh Saadiq
appears).
 Adopting the companionship of the Saaliheen (the pious).

WRAPPED IN DIVINE LOVE
Hadhrat Shaikh Shibli (rahmatullah alayh) was perpetually absorbed by the Love of Allah
Ta’ala. Whenever he saw the Name of Allah written, he would rub it on his eyes, kiss and
admire it. Honouring the Name of Allah Ta’ala had become an overwhelmingly intensive
passion in him. Once while he was engaged in this manner with the Name of Allah Azza Wa Jal,
he heard a Voice exclaiming: “O Shibli! How long will you continue being absorbed with the
love of The Name? When will you love the Divine Zaat (The Being of Allah)?”
On hearing this pronouncement, he became enraptured with ecstasy. He cast himself into the
raging waves of the River Dajlah (Tigris River). Allah Ta’ala commanded the waves to deliver
him safely to the shore. He then wandered about enwrapped in the Mantle of Divine Love until
he came to a blazing furnace wherein he cast himself. The fire did not burn a single hair on his
body. He emerged from the fire and wandered in a jungle where the wild beasts of prey dwelled.
But the wild animals made no attempt to devour him.
Lamenting he proclaimed while wandering in the jungle: “Woe to the one whom the waters
did not drown, neither the fire consumed nor the wild beasts!” In response, he heard the Divine
Voice exclaiming: “Nothing in creation can kill the Beloved of Allah, who will be killed by only
Allah.”

HADHRAT ZUNNUN MISRI
HADHRAT Zunnun Misri (rahmatullah alayh), the famous Wali of Egypt of the third Islamic century,
was branded a zindeeq (heretic/kaafir) by the people of Egypt. His mystical statements were
beyond their intellectual capacity. The people sent a petition to Khalifah Mutawakkil in Baghdad
complaining severely about Hadhrat Zunnun (rahmatullah alayh). Many blasphemous statements
and beliefs were attributed to him. The Khalifah ordered his arrest and instructed that he be sent in
chains to Baghdad which was the seat of the Khilaafate.
Consequently, Hadhrat Zunnun (rahmatullah alayh) was put in chains and dispatched to
Baghdad. When he finally was delivered into the court of the Khalifah, he commented: “Today I
have learnt how to be a Muslim from two persons: an old lady and a young man.” When he was
asked to explain, he said: “Along the way to the court, a young water-carrier gave me some water
to drink. I indicated to a friend who had accompanied me to give him a dinar. The water-carrier
HAYAATAN TAYYIBATAN (A WHOLESOME LIFE)

refused to accept it, and commented: “It is dishonourable to take payment from a stranger in
chains.”
“When I was ushered into the Khalifah’s court, I became a bit apprehensive when I observed
the pomp and splendour, the soldiers, guards, etc. As some change overtook me, there suddenly
appeared an old lady with a stick in front of me. She reprimanded: “Beware! Never fear! The one to
whom they are taking you is a human being just as you. He cannot do you anything without the
Will of Allah Ta’ala.” Then she disappeared.
The Khalifah ordered that Hadhrat Zunnun be imprisoned for forty days. Whilst in jail, Hadhrat
Bishr Haafi’s sister who was a saintly lady of lofty rank would daily send one bread to the prison for
Hadhrat Zunnun. After forty days when he was released, it was seen that the forty bread were all
intact. He did not eat a single piece of the bread. This realization grieved the saintly lady. When
she queried the reason for having abstained from the bread which she had prepared from her
halaal earning, Hadhrat Zunnun (rahmatullah alayh) said that he was aware that the bread was
from her halaal earnings, however, the container in which the bread was sent was contaminated by
the hands of an oppressor. This was a reference to the hands of the jail warder who would bring
the bread.
After he was released, he fell down due to extreme weakness. His head was injured and blood
gushed forth. Miraculously, the blood did not run on to his face nor on his garments, but would run
off directly from his forehead on to the ground and the ground would instantaneously absorb it.
Before he was released, he was brought into the presence of Khalifah Mutawakkil and
interrogated about his beliefs and the seemingly blasphemous statements attributed to him.
Hadhrat Zunnun acquitted himself with such eloquence and elucidation that the Khalifah broke
down crying. All the noblemen and scholars present were amazed at the eloquence and the
elaboration presented by Hadhrat Zunnun (rahmatullah alayh). So awed became the Khalifah that
he became the mureed and devotee of Hadhrat Zunnun Misri (rahmatullah alayh) who was sent
back to Egypt in great honour and respect.

THE INSANITY OF LOVE

When the condition of divine love of Hadhrat Shibli became intolerable for the people, they
fettered him with chains. When the chains served no purpose, he was imprisoned. Once when he
heard some people saying that he was mad, he replied: “On the Day of Qiyaamah it will be
revealed who is mad – I or you.”
Once while in the prison some well-wishers visited him. He asked: “Who are you?” They
said: “Your followers and well-wishers.” Hadhrat Shibli picked up stones and began pelting
them. They all ran away. He commented: “You are my friends, but you flee from me!”

THE INTOXICATION OF DIVINE LOVE
Once while Hadhrat Shibli (rahmatullah alayh) was engrossed with the Thikr of ‘Allaahu-
Allaah’, a Durwaish passing by said to him: “If you make thikr of Laa ilaha il lallaah, it will be
most appropriate.” Hadhrat Shibli let out a fearful scream and said: “I fear that my soul will
depart on the word, Laa.” In other words, his perception of the shortness of life was so vivid that
he felt his soul would depart at any moment. He could not tolerate that his soul departs while he
says ‘Laa’, i.e. ‘there is no deity’.
When the Durwaish heard this comment, he too let out a screech and he dropped dead. The
news of this episode spread swiftly. The relatives of the dead Durwaish arrived. They arrested
Hadhrat Shibli and took him to the king and accused him of having killed the Durwaish. When
the king questioned Hadhrat Shibli, he ecstatically recited poetry of Divine Love. The king
hastily ordered his men: “Take away this man intoxicated with Divine Love. A queer state is
affecting me. I fear that if I listen to him for a few more moments, I shall collapse and fall from
my throne.”

TRUE LOVE IS WITH ONLY ALLAH
Hadhrat Zainul Aaabideen had a son and a daughter, both of tender age. Once his little daughter
asked him: “O my beloved father, do you love my brother?” Hadhrat Zainul Aabideen: “Why
not? I love him much.” Hearing this, the little child began crying profusely. Hadhrat Zainul
Aabideen to placate her, lifted her up and said: “I love you too dearly.” The little girl increased
her crying, rolled on the ground and lapsed into unconsciousness. Hadhrat Zainul Aabideen,
greatly perplexed and worried, exclaimed: “O Allah! What is this?”
When she regained consciousness, she said: “O my father, once you had said that true love
cannot be for anyone besides Allah. How is it possible for a man to love Allah Ta’ala and also
love others?” Hadhrat Zainul Aabideen said: “My beloved daughter, what you are saying is
nothing but the truth. True love is only for Allah. Everything besides Him is insignificant.”


EXTINGUISHING THE LAMP OF MA’RIFAT

Offering admonition to the Auliya in particular, Hadhrat Shibli (rahmatullah alayh) said that
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) warned against satiation (i.e. filling the stomach with
food). Satiation extinguishes the lamp of the Noor of Ma’rifat in the heart.”

DEPRIVATION AND HUMILIATION
Hadhrat Ibraahim Khawwaas (rahmatullah alayh) said: “A person who claims to be a repository
of Ma’rifat of Allah, but perceives that he derives comfort from others, Allah Ta’ala will
ultimately afflict him with severe trials and calamities. However, if he repents and abandons his
error, Allah Ta’ala will save him from the calamities. If he does not realize and repent, Allah
Ta’ala imposes greed on him, then he hankers after the wealth of others. He is then deprived
from the bounties of this world and the Hereafter. The Qur’aan Majeed says: “He is a loser in
this world and in the Aakhirah.”

 

HADHRAT UMAR AND HIS NAFS

Heraculeus, the Roman emperor, sent some gifts to Hadhrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhu). Of the
four items he sent, one was an exquisite golden casket filled with diamonds. The second item
was a stunningly beautiful slave girl dressed in the most beautiful garments with jewels. The
third item was a bottle of such perfume which was priceless. Only kings and emperors could
afford it. The fourth item was a bottle of such lethal poison, the odour of which was sufficient to
kill a person.
When the emperor’s representative arrived in Madinah Munawwarah in great style and
pomp, the inhabitants were intrigued. He asked the people to direct him to the palace of the
Muslim Emperor, Ameerul Mu’mineen Umar. The people said that their Ameerul Mu’mineen
had neither palace nor fortress. At that time he was in the Musjid in all probability taking a nap
because during the night time he would tour the streets taking care of the citizens.
The emperor’s representative was extremely astonished to learn that the king whose name
sent shudders down the spines of emperors and kings was sleeping in the Musjid, had neither
palace nor fortress, and would walk the streets guarding the citizens. He went to Musjid-e-
Nabawi where he found a man sleeping in the sand.
There were no carpets in the Musjid. It was a date-palm structure with a sand floor. The
Christian was dumbfounded. He stared in bewilderment at the sleeping Ameerul Mu’mineen.
His garments and the covering sheet were full of patches and he was sleeping on the sand. He
had no weapons. Only a whip was at his side. But the face of Hadhrat Umar was so aweinspiring
that the Christian began to shiver uncontrollably.
While the emperor’s man was riveted in the place where he stood, Hadhrat Umar’s eyes
opened. Seeing the stranger in gaudy apparel shivering, he exclaimed: “Don’t fear! Don’t fear!”
On Hadhrat Umar’s enquiring, the Christian explained who he was and the purpose of his
mission. Hadhrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhu) said: “Let me see the gifts.” The Christian first
presented the golden casket filled with diamonds. Hadhrat Umar opened and admired it. Then he
handed it to a Sahaabi with the instruction to deposit it into the Baitul Maal (Public Treasury).
Then he said: “What else have you brought?” The emperor’s man called the girl who was
waiting outside dressed in splendid garments and jewellery. He instructed that she remove her
Niqaab (face-covering). When Hadhrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhu) saw her stunning beauty, he
exclaimed: “Glory to Allah Who is the Creator of the most beautiful appearances.” This is an
aayat in Surah Al-Mu’minoon. Accepting the gift, he looked around the Musjid and saw a slave.
He called the slave and asked: “Do you prefer this girl?” The slave in delight exclaimed:
“Undoubtedly, I love her.” Hadhrat Umar presented her as a gift to the slave.
He asked: “What else have you brought?” The Christian presented the bottle of perfume and
extolled its wondrous virtue. Hadhrat Umar said: “The Musjid is most deserving of it.” He
opened the bottle and emptied the contents all over the Musjid. The Christian was stunned by the
behaviour of Hadhrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhu). Here was a mighty conqueror, emperor and
ruler, yet he had no desire for worldly possessions. He simply eliminated whatever was given to
him.

TWO ROADS TO ALLAH
A BUZRUG narrated that once he was in the company of Shaikh Abu Saeed Kharraaz (rahmatullah
alayh) on the shores of the sea. The Shaikh observing a man in the distance said to his group: "Sit
down. The approaching man appears to be a Wali of Allah Ta'ala." When the person neared him,
they saw that he was an extremely handsome young man with a shawl hanging on his shoulder.
Hadhrat Abu Saeed said: "Young man! How do we find the road leading to Allah?"
The stranger said: "O Abu Saeed! Know that there are two roads leading to Allah. One is a special
road, and one is a general one (for the masses). The general road is the one you and your
companions are plodding. The special road is this." So saying, he began walking on the water of
the sea until he disappeared from our sight. Hadhrat Abu Saeed remained standing in
bewilderment , reflecting on the proximity the young man enjoyed with Allah Ta'ala.
A SINNER BECOMES A WALI
HADHRAT KA'B Ahbaar (rahmatullah alayh) narrated the following episode of a sinner's repentance
and acceptance by Allah Ta'ala.
Once a man of Bani Israaeel committed fornication with a prostitute. When he entered into the
river to take ghusl, the river miraculously reprimanded : “Have you no shame! Do you not repent?”
The shocked man was overcome with fear. He quickly came out of the river and headed towards
the nearby mountain. Soon he came across a group of 12 Aabideen (Worshippers) who were
engrossed in ibaadat. He too joined them and devoted himself to ibaadat.
After some time they were overtaken by a severe drought and famine. The Aabideen decided to go
towards the river in search of grass and plants. However, the man said that he would not
accompany them to the river. When they asked the reason, he said: “There is someone by the river
who is aware of my sins. I am ashamed of meeting him." The 12 Aabideen, leaving the man
departed.
When they reached the river bank, a Voice from the water said: "O Worshippers! Where is your
companion." They said: “He is ashamed of someone who knows his sins. He therefore refused to
come." The Voice said: “Subhaanallaah! If one of your children or relatives seeks forgiveness for
having disobeyed you, will you then not love him? Your companion has repented and is engaged
in acts which I love. I now love him. Go and bring him here. Tell him to remain here and worship
Allah Ta'ala.”
The group informed the man of what had transpired, and brought him to the river. They remained
on the river bank for a very long period of time (months or years). Then one day the man died.
The river proclaimed: “O Devotees of Allah! Give him ghusl with my water and bury him on my
banks so that on the Day of Qiyaamah he will be by me."
The 12 Aabideen, after complying with the river's request, decided to spend the night by the man's
qabr, then departed the next morning to return to the mountain. When their eyes opened they saw
12 trees had miraculously grown around the grave. They understood that it was a message from
Allah Ta'ala for them to remain and spend their remaining lifetime in ibaadat in that place. When
one of them died, he would be buried alongside the man. All of the 12 Aabideen had died one after
the other, and were buried there. The people of Bani Israaeel would visit these graves to make

 

A ROBBER AND MA’ROOF KARKHI’S SUPPLICATION
A robber was sentenced to death for his heinous crimes. He was hanged until he died. While his
dead body was dangling, Hadhrat Ma’roof Karkhi (rahmatullah alayh) appeared. Beholding the
awful scene, shivers went down his spine. He raised his hands and supplicated: “O Allah! This
robber has tasted the punishment of his misdeeds here on earth. You are the Most Forgiving, The
Most Merciful. If you forgive him, and bestow honour to him in both worlds, your treasures will
not decrease by a dot.”
As he made Dua, suddenly a Voice proclaimed loudly: “Whoever performs the Janaazah
Salaat of this hanged man will attain a lofty rank in the Hereafter.” All the people of the city
heard the proclamation from the Unseen realm. The people rushed out of their homes. They
lowered the body with respect and honour, gave it ghusl and kafan. The forgiven robber was
HAVEN OF SERENITY

buried honourably. In this way did Allah Ta’ala accept and fulfil the Dua of Hadhrat Ma’roof
Karkhi.
A Buzrug that night saw in a dream the robber in a state of splendour with a group of pious
persons. When the Buzrug asked in his dream: “How did you attain this lofty rank?” The robber
replied: “Allah Ta’ala accepted the Dua of Hadhrat Ma’roof Karkhi and forgave me.”
