Seeking Through Allah – Three Spiritual Counsels of Ibn Ata’illah

(1) Nothing proves difficult if you seek through by your Lord; and nothing proves easy if you seek it through yourself. [25]

(2) The best of what you seek is what He seeks from you. [75]

(3) What knowers of Allah (arifin, gnostics) seek from Allah is being true in their slavehood and fulfilling the rights of Lordship. [79]

And Allah alone gives success.


– ما تَوَقَّفَ مَطْلَبٌ أَنْتَ طَالِبُهُ بِرَبِّكَ , وَلاَ تَيَسَّرَ مَطْلَبٌ أَنْتَ طَالِبُهُ بِنَفْسِكَ (25) .
– خَيْرُ مَا تَطْلبُهُ مِنْهُ مَا هُوُ طَالِبُهُ مِنْكَ (75) .
– مَطْلَبُ العَارِفِينَ مِنَ اللّهِ الصِّدْقُ فِي العُبُودِيَّةِ والْقِيَامُ بِحُقُوقِ الرُّبُوبِيَّةِ (
79)
