Description :

There is a need for works in every field of the Islamic sciences, which will take the beauty, delicacy, and elegance of Islam into the hearts of human beings. This is especially true in the field of spiritual guidance... The reason for this is because today we are at the pinnacle of spiritual hunger and moral dissatisfaction. Therefore, the demand for religious services is an obvious necessity in our society, and we should be willing to devote ourselves to such service. In this regard; it is necessary for us to utilise the blessings of Allah such as our intellectual and spiritual comprehension, our lives, possessions, and time in the way of His contentment. Hence, it is vital that we fully utilise the blessings bestowed upon us, such as our intellectual and spiritual comprehension, our time on this earth, and our possessions, all for the sake of pleasing Allah.

Since the Friends of God are the heirs to the Prophets, they continue to practice the Prophetic guidance and moral perfection for the rest of mankind. The guidance and advice coming from the tongues of the Friends of God breathe new life into the hearts of others through a language of mercy and in effect these counsels spring from the prophetic instructions.

                              ''The world is wheat, I am hay,
                                The world is nice, I am bad ...''

                                                                [Bah ud-Din Naqshband, radi Allahu anhu].

The Friends of Allah are a means of blessing and mercy for their neighbourhood. They are arms of mercy and compassion embracing to all the segments of the community. They are also like magnets attracting the believers, for Allah the Almighty loved these righteous servants and have people love them. This is why the Friends of Allah are not forgotten after their death and continue to live in the hearts of those who love them.

If we truly love the Saints (Friends of Allah), the Beloved Servants of Allah, and want to be resurrected with them in the Hereafter, we must try to exemplify their good manners. By balancing our behaviour with theirs, taking their actions as our own criteria, and trying to accomplish their spiritual state, we may reach eternal happiness.
