Man must be in the correct state

Sufi Mentor and protégé


Uwais al-Qarani said to some visitors: ‘Do you seek God? If so, why have you come to me?’

The visitors only thought that they sought God. Their presence and emanations gave them away.

‘If you do not, continued Uwais, ‘what business has you with me?’

Because they were intellectuals and emotionalists, they could not understand him.
