Definition of Suluk

By Shaykh Yusuf Laher / 24 Apr 2013

Suluk means to constantly keep the parts of the body and the heart occupied in the obedience of Allah Most High.

Tawakkul

By Ayub A. Hamid / 8 Apr 2013

Whoever relies on Allah (has Tawakkul), He is sufficient for him. (At-Talaaq 65:3) 

Tawakkul is another attribute that results from a true Iman in Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta`ala. It is an attitude that emanates from the conviction that:

Remembrance of Allah

Almost every person in the modern world is involved in some basic worldly activity like earning a living, going to school, eating, sleeping, and socializing.  Naturally, we forget Allah and the obligations due to Him.  When we forget Allah, this life and its worries become the central occupation of the human mind.  Desires run wild.  A person begins to ‘chase his shadow’, something he can never catch.  For many, money becomes the sole goal of life.  The more you make, the more you spend, the more you want.

The difference between miracles, karamahs and magic.

“How do we attain true love for our shaykh?”

He replied: “By asking for that from Allah and pleading with Him to be given it. We should also study how the Companions were with the Messenger of Allah, and how the seekers of the past were with their shaykhs. We can find this in their biographies.”
