There have been requests for more sayings of Hz Khadim-e- Mohabbat (ra). Unfortunately heedlessness has prevented me from complying with this so far. Here then are few more gems from the Master.
– The lack of action (amal) gives birth to verbal incontinence (jaryan e kalam); jaryan* is an illness which is an enemy to manhood.
– An angel can never be the “examiner” of the syllabus of Love; if you want to be saved from the questioning of the angels nurture the love of the Holy Prophet (pbuh)…..and hell is nothing but the disgrace of being questioned.
– Prayer (namaz, salat) does not remove desires from us but rather it purifies them and makes them useful for us and abandoning prayer leads to the impurity and straying of natural desires and instincts. That is why prayer is the cure for impurity and lewedness. Prayer prevents us from shamelessness (be-hayai) by bringing our shame (haya) to life;…..and the constant attention towards the presence of Al-Hayy at the level of complete certainty (haqq al-yaqin) is a type of shame; and in the face of this eternal presence of al-Hayyul Qayyum to be heedless of Him and attentive towards oneself is pure shamelessness.
* jaryan is normally used to describe seminal incontinence (leading to a wastage of this vital fluid).
