The Spiritual Life In Islam Sufism
The life of a Sufi is the “life of a sprit” regulated strictly in accordance with Islamic theology and traditions. to attain this his first lesson is his unshakable belief in the existence of GOD and unconditional surrender to his will.
This entails a strenuous life attended by rigid austerity and self-denial. He has to undergo courses of training in prayers and meditation to attain the divine knowledge and realization of truth. This particular knowledge is passed on ‘in secret’ by one Sufi to another having the requisite qualification i.e.
one who does not think evil does not see evil and does not speak evil. Without this divine knowledge one, cannot fathom the hidden mysteries of the nature and those of soul. To sum up the whole object of Sufism is t attain the highest spiritual perfection.
A Sufi will be distinguished from other on account of his detachment from his Parents. Children, Wealth, Power, Position, and Comforts. His ignorance vanishes in the influence of the ‘DIVINE LIGHT’ of the most high, the lord of entire universe. In such an ecstatically devotion there is neither pain nor sorrow for him as he is overwhelmingly to the almighty GOD. Thus a Sufi saint is a spiritual king, far above all temporal kings, disguised in the patched robes of a humble dervish.
HAZRAT KHAWAJA GHARIB NAEAZ (R.A) was one of the greatest Sufi saint the world ever knows. His spiritual influence and benedictions have been, and are still a perpetually source of inspiration courage and guidance to the afflicted humanity, irrespective of caste, creed, or religion.
