Pearls of Wisdom: Practicing Ascetism [1]

“Step out of your own self and keep your distance from it. Practice detachment from your possessiveness, and surrender everything to Allah. Become His doorman at the door of your heart, obeying His command by admitting those He instructs you to admit, and respecting His prohibition by shutting out those He instructs you to turn away, so that you do not let desire back into your heart once it has been removed.”

–  Shaikh Abdul-Qadir Jilani RAA
