WHOLE HEARTED DEVOTION

”…then it can be said with certainty that he has not cut himself off from this world. The chains of fashions and worldly ambitions are still keeping him tied down and he has not come out of covering which a man has to tear up to attain to the stage of perfect devotion to God…”

“The covenant of Baiat which a person enters into at my hands is mainly for giving preference to religion over the worldly affairs and to take me who has been commissioned by God and who is the Vice of the Holy prophet sallallaho alaihi wa sallam and who has been called the Hakam and the Adl. Also that he will take my decisions as final and do so with an open mind. But if somebody after having entered into this covenant does not accept my decision with pleasure rather he finds a sort of reluctance in so doing, then it can be said with certainty that he has not cut himself off from this world. The chains of fashions and worldly ambitions are still keeping him tied down and he has not come out of covering which a man has to tear up to attain to the stage of perfect devotion to God. Unless he is cut off from the tree of this world and is grafted to the divine tree he cannot be fresh and have growth. Behold! when a branch is cut off from a tree it cannot bear fruits any more, nor can it produce any flowers, even though it is kept immersed in the water and all sorts of means are used to keep it alive as was the case before it was cut off. It will never bear fruit. Likewise unless a man is grafted to a Truthful person he cannot have the power to attract spiritual bliss just as a branch cut off from the tree cannot be green by watering it.

In order to be fully devoted what is most essential is that one should get himself cut off from one side and be grafted to the other.

He will have to graft himself with God and cut himself off from all his passions and leanings.

Of course it does not mean that he will have nothing to do with this world and will get isolated from it. He will be in this world and yet away from it. This is real and true manliness and bravery. Getting away from the world actually means that he will not be affected and influenced by the worldly move, he will rather be devoted to the Cause of God”.

(Malfoozat Vol. II, pp. 359)
