The Best Way to Get Your Prayer Answered… Ibn `Atta’ Explains

In his well-known book, Al-Hikam (Words of Wisdom), sheikh Ahmad Ibn `Ataa’illah As-Sakandari says:

The best way to ask Him is through expressing your distress, and the fastest way to acquire His gifts is through expressing your humility and need.

The word of wisdom under discussion is about du`aa’ (supplication).

It is not about the etiquette of supplication, but it is about the condition of the heart during supplication...

Ibn Ataa’ on Keeping Priorities Straight

In his well-known book, Al-Hikam (Words of Wisdom), sheikh Ahmad Ibn `Ataa’illah As-Sakandari says:

A sign of following one’s whims is to be active with optional good deeds while being lazy with required obligations.

The next step in our journey to Allah requires sound knowledge and deep understanding...

Ibn Ataa: Grace Emerges from Darkness!

In his well-known book, Al-Hikam (Words of Wisdom), sheikh Ahmad Ibn `Ataa’illah As-Sakandari says:

Perhaps clouds of darkness will come by you, so that He acquaints you with the extent He has Graced you.

The meaning of this piece of wisdom can be summed up as follows:

Perhaps lusts and lapses which are similar to darkness will come upon one so that Allah the Almighty acquaints him with the lights He Graced him with.

This will make one increase his thanks when he is referred back to the light which was distanced by lusts, and will make him keen on performing the dues of His blessings in all times.

Indeed, there is not a time where Almighty Allah does not have a blessing that one owes thanks for.

However, to detail this a little bit further, one is commended to read through the following lines...

Ibn Ataa: How Sincerity Revives Actions

In his well-known book, Al-Hikam (Words of Wisdom), sheikh Ahmad Ibn `Ataa’illah As-Sakandari says:

“Actions are like statues that only come to life with the spirit of sincerity”.

Sincerity to Allah is more fundamental than relying on Allah, since it has to do with a deeper level of faith in Him, Most High.

Yet, it was important to affirm our relying on Allah and hope in His Mercy, before discussing sincerity. This is because pure sincerity to Allah is so subtle and so hard to achieve without much hope in Allah’s Grace and strong reliance on Him.

Sincerity to Allah is so essential for our journey. In Ibn `Ataa’s words: (Actions are like statues that only come to life with the spirit of sincerity).

If we imagine a simile between an action and a human body, then the action devoid of sincerity is like a body without a soul; a dead body...

Satisfaction: A Godly Gift (Ibn Atta)

In his well-known book, Al-Hikam (Words of Wisdom), sheikh Ahmad Ibn `Ataa’illah As-Sakandari says:

His most perfect blessing on you is to give you just enough, and to deprive you from what will cause you to do wrong. When you have less to be happy with, you will have less to be sad about.

This stage of our journey to Allah relates to the issue of providence and how to understand it correctly.

The Prophetic hadith that says: “The little that suffices is better than the abundant and distracting”, has been re-worded by the Sheikh in this word of wisdom.

The Sheikh says: “His most perfect blessing on you is to give you just enough, and to deprive you from what will cause you to do wrong”.

Allah the Almighty may give a believer just enough, not more or less. When this happens, it is a perfect blessing from Allah.

If Allah gives abundant providence to someone, there is a risk of that person transgressing boundaries...
