OF THE MUREED
Hajj Mustafa Ali
The path of Islam contains all answers
needed, as one journeys in this physical world as well as the answers and
guidance that emanates from the unseen. Human
beings have the capacity of witnessing and correcting themselves as declared in
The higher self within us is the closest
to the divine light, which has gifted us the Ruh.
In order to get that higher reflection we need the prophetic light and conduct
as the ultimate reference point. At
a practical level we need to refer to the must illuminated awakened human being
close to us.
It is in this matter that we need to
follow a living teacher or guide. The
danger of being misled by the lower self and Shaytan is ever present.
It is for this that we need a trusted and reliable reflection.
Therefore the relationship between the teacher and the follower is an
intimate one, based on unconditional love and service to Allah.
A truly courteous
mureed is indeed
courteous to himself and the job of the teacher is to ensure that this courtesy
is to the higher self.
Hopefully this booklet will touch the
hearts and the conduct for we are both intention and action.
Allah is the only One
