“…then by the blessings of Allah one can pronounce that the faculties of such a man are as if his eyes are the ‘eyes’ of Allah the Almighty, his tongue is the ‘tongue’ of Allah the Almighty and his hands and feet and ears are the ‘hands, feet and ears’ of Allah the Almighty…”
“‘Waqf’ for Allah can only be truly called so when all one’s faculties are immersed in obedience as if they are instruments of God through which Divine actions are manifested occasionally or they become such a clean mirror that they reflect the intentions of God. When such total obedience and devotion to Allah is attained, then by the blessings of Allah one can pronounce that the faculties of such a man are as if his eyes are the ‘eyes’ of Allah the Almighty, his tongue is the ‘tongue’ of Allah the Almighty and his hands and feet and ears are the ‘hands, feet and ears’ of Allah the Almighty; Because all those organs and faculties, filled with the intention of Allah the Almighty and having become the mirror image of Allah’s desires, become such that they are justifiably called His countenance.
“The reason is that just as the limbs of a person are obedient to his intentions and desires, similarly an accomplished person develops a complete congruence with the Will and Intentions of Allah the Almighty, and he loves the Majesty, the Oneness, the Propriety, and the Divinity of Allah the Almighty and he loves His every Desire and His every Intention just as Allah the Almighty does Himself. This unique and grand obedience and service to Allah that is filled with love and sincerity and absolute praise of Allah, is true quintessence of Islam. And this can only be attained after achieving extinction of ego, desires and the surroundings.”
