Salam alaikum! 🙏🏻
“When I was about 9 years old I learned the translation of Bismillahi rahmani rahim. It means that we are servants, so we must respect our Lord, the One who created us. We shouldn’t be heedless of Him, we are living with Him. If He wouldn’t give us life, we couldn’t live. That is why we owe Him the highest respect. We should never forget Him. We should try to ask for His Divine Help.”
~ Mawlana Shaykh Nazim, Secret Desires (1996), page 102.
In this week’s sohbet, I discuss belief, God-consciousness, and interaction with people of other beliefs.
Followed by the traditional weekly dhikr/meditation of the Naqshbandi tariqat.
