AN ADRESS TO THE READER 1 (from a letter by hadrat Abdul Qadir al-Jilani)

Dear friend, Your heart is a polished mirror.You must wipe it clean of the veil of dust which has gathered upon it,because it is destined to reflect the light of divine secrets.

When the light from Allah(Who) is the light of heavens and the earth...begins to shine upon the region of your heart,the lamp of the heart will be lit. The lamp of the heart is in a glass,the glass is as it were a brightly shinning star...Then within that heart, the lightning-shaft of divine discoveries strikes. This lightning-shaft will emanate from the thunderclouds of meaning neither of the East nor of the West, lit from a blessed olive tree...and throw light upon the tree of discovery,so pure,so transparent that it sheds light though firedoes not touch it. The lamp of wisdom is lit by itself. How can it remain unlit when the light of Allah's secrets shines over it? -to be continued..
