Weekly Quote 2

Sheikh Mehmed Zahid Kotku (RhA), from Tasavvufi Ahlak:

"There is no doubt that human beings must look for their treatment against the moral diseases originating from conceit, self-complacency, envy, hypocrisy and materialism. As witnessed by many sayings of the Prophet, non-adherence to a sheikh or a murshid as a pretext to emancipate oneself from those or similar bad attributes is a revolt against God and His Prophet. This is because one who is not following a true path cannot attain salvation unless he adheres to a perfect murshid. Regardless of how many books one may study or memorize, it does not help to refine one’s hearth and to purify ones nefs (self)."
