Nav for Ikhlas
Allah Ta’ala wants that every Believer, every Muslim, you
and I, no matter how far away we may be, and no matter how much we
may have distanced ourselves from Him to still become His friend.
And this is not an impossibility. Do not regard Wilayat (friendship
with Allah) as a very difficult thing.
In these times, none of the Mashaa`ik will prescribe that a person
stands on the shores of the ocean, on one leg, and reads one tasbeeh,
ten thousand times… nothing of the kind.
The prescription of the times is the simplest and easiest, and the
only effort that we really require to make in these times of fitnah (trial)
and corruption, is that together with fulfilling those Rights which
are Fardh, Waajib and Sunnat, we restrain ourselves from all sins.
A little Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala), accompanying this, will then
yield great results. We will then, Insha-Allah, see what Ikhlaas
Allah Ta’ala grants to the heart, and what rewards follow on
