Despite rendering a countless number of services, His Eminence passionately believes in the following:
Services of Spiritual Foundation is based on sincere effort. Effort is only our part and we are helpless except doing it. If our effort seems to be bearing fruits then it is the bounty of Allah.
Let us pray to Allah (swt) that in this era of turmoil & tumult and the lack of righteous & pious men, the shadow of His Eminence remains on us for a long time. And may Allah (swt) give us courage to play our role in the cause and mission of Sufism. Ameen!
