A few days spent in the company of Friends of Allah are better than a hundred years of sincere obedience to Allah. If thy seekest Divine Vicinity, spend your time with Saints! The further thou art with them, the further thou will be from Allah. If yours is a stony heart it will turn into pearl in the company of the Ecstatics. (Moulana Jalaluddin Rumi – radi Allahu anhu)
No virtue is greater than piety and silence, and no enemy is greater than ignorance, and no sickness is greater than lies. (Hazrat Imam Jaffer as-Sadiq – radi Allahu anhu
A Sufi is like the earth – even if impurities are thrown on it, it will flourish with lush greenery. (Hazrat Sheikh Abul Qasim Junaid al-Baghdadi – radi Allahu anhu)
That person can never become perfect until he does not give preference to Deen (religion) over his personal desires. (Hazrat Sheikh Sirri Saqti – radi Allahu anhu)
