There is no doubt that every man is part of the meanings just as the sea has waves, but the sensory darrqawi overwhelmed them and taken hold of their hearts and limbs. He was beloved by all who saw him.
There is no doubt that if anyone obtains reflection — even if it is after a year, or two or three years — then he has obtained great good and a clear secret since it says in Prophetic tradition, “An hour of reflection is better than seventy years of worship.
