Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jamiyya
May Allah give us all intelligence. Intelligence is important. The intelligent person does not deviate from the path and finds the true path. However, let us use intelligence for good things Inshallah. People like going after mindless people and conform to their ego more. Even those on the right path like to go after someone who is “intoxicated with Allah” (majzub) or a person of state (sahib ahwal).
It is not easy going after them. We are not under their orders. The shaykhs call them people of states. It is not easy handling a person of states. Their burden is heavy. It would be difficult to carry if they gave you from their burdens. Sometimes they pray (make dua) and sometimes they wish someone ill (make a bad dua) as they are people of states. They are not responsible but you have no obligation to go after them. You can treat them and what not, but do not go after them and do not get used to going after them. You will be obliged to do so if they get used to it. That time your world, meaning your family, will not be able to carry it and it would not be their fault .
They are people of states. Just as Allah created people all kinds they are also a certain kind. They are holy ones but, as we said, it is not good getting too close to them because not everybody can carry it. People say they can when it comes to talk, but it is hard when things get serious. Allah does not burden anybody with a burden they cannot carry. He also tells us not to take on burden by ourselves. Our Holy Prophet (SAW) would take the easier choice and leave the hard one if there were two choices in a matter.
Our Holy Prophet (SAW) could have done the hard as well. He could have very easily done it, but he did this as a mercy for the nation (ummat), to make it easy on us, so all our business and worship would be comfortable and not burdensome or hard. Because Shaitan shows people even the lightest worship that has no burden as difficult. Therefore, do not take on much burden, let us do our worships, and let us not ask for difficult things or for things we cannot carry. May Allah grant us ease in doing our worships. May He give us lightness Inshallah.
Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.
