”…The seeker after having reached some length must not stop, otherwise the satan would make him busy in some other kind of things. Just as the static water begins to stink, if the believer does not make effort for his advancement, he falls down. The good-natured people, therefore, must always, keep themselves busy in religious affairs…”
“So far as the Religious leader and his follower are concerned, they are like a teacher and a disciple (student). Just as the student benefits from the teacher, so also does the follower from the Religious leader. But if it so happens that despite the fact that the student stays with the teacher, he does not advance in his studies, that cannot be of any avail to him. Same is the case with the follower. That being the situation, it is necessary that after one is linked with the Religious leader, one should try to advance in the knowledge of religion and in God-realisation. The seeker after having reached some length must not stop, otherwise the satan would make him busy in some other kind of things. Just as the static water begins to stink, if the believer does not make effort for his advancement, he falls down. The good-natured people, therefore, must always, keep themselves busy in religious affairs.
There never has been a man in the world more perfect than the Holy Prophet, sallallaho alaihi wa sallam, but he also was taught by God to be praying Rabbi zidnee ‘ilmaa (0 my God increase me in knowledge). Who else, then, can trust his knowledge and God realisation and stop moving forward, because he thinks that he has got enough of these things. The more a man advances in knowledge and God-realisation the more he begins to feel that he needs to know a lot more. There are certain things which, in the beginning, they look to be meaningless (just as a child thinks that the diagrams of Mathematics are meaningless). But having advanced further, they come to know that those very points were real and true.
That is why it is vitally important that with the change of one’s position, one should try to carry his knowledge nearer to completion. You have left a lot of meaningless things and joined this dispensation and if now you do not try to know the whole truth and you do not get insight into all what you have received here, you will not be able to benefit from joining this dispensation and you will not be able to attain to certainty; your doubts will make you stumble at every step”.
