In this week’s majlis the murid is reminded of their purpose of taking this path and that the goal is to recognise and gain the closeness of the Creator. Shaykh mentions the two doors of reaching Allah. One is through physical death and the other is by following the path of the sufis. The paradise of of this world is the recognition of Allah, through which the servant realises their lowly status and the true majesty of their Master. Shaykh Abdur-Rahman mentions that when Allah desires closeness with His servant He covers their faults and weaknesses with His honourable attributes. The task then of the aspirant is to be regular and strive in performing the prescribed litanies. When the heart receives a sufficient amount of these adhkar, doors will begin to open up, and one will then desire to increase in the extra acts of worship. It is only through the optional acts that one draws closer to Allah. With every virtuous deed performed the aspirant must do shukr that he or she was allowed to carry it out, and then also seek forgiveness for the shortcomings of their actions. By the aspirant acknowledging their weakness’, believing that they have no ability to do any good without His grace, the journey to their Lord will only begin to illuminate.
