Happy Mawlid an Nabi 1435 (2014)

Paul Salahuddin Armstrong

“CONSIDER this unfolding [of God’s message], as it comes down from on high! This fellow-man of yours has not gone astray, nor is he deluded, and neither does he speak out of his own desire: that [which he conveys to you] is but [a divine] inspiration with which he is being inspired – something that a very mighty one has imparted to him: [an angel] endowed with surpassing power, who in time manifested himself in his true shape and nature, appearing in the horizon’s loftiest part, and then drew near, and came close, until he was but two bow-lengths away, or even nearer. And thus did [God] reveal unto His servant whatever He deemed right to reveal.”
~ Holy Qur’an 53:1-10 (M. Asad)

Allah intends every facility for you He does not want to put you to difficulties. (He wants you) to complete the prescribed period and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful.”

Paul Salahuddin Armstrong

Shaykh Nazim - If you are asking for an oasis

“Ninety-nine may be illusions, but one may be a real oasis for you because the Lord Almighty says, ‘Don’t cut off your hope; don’t despair’.”

You don’t have forty hands to go everywhere to take forty Shaykhs’ hands. Therefore, if you are traveling on a spiritual journey, when you meet with your guide or with your destination, I think it is enough for you at that time to be in one place.
