ADAB OF THE MUREED

By: Hajj Mustafa Ali

Foreword
By
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri
 

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 Qur`an. 

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
