The Golden Chain

Stories and Sayings of Shaykh Muhammad Masum

Shaykh Muhammad Masum al-Faruqi (may God sanctify his innermost being), the twenty sixth Shaykh in the Naqshbandi Golden Chain, said the following:-

“If one loves the Friends of Allah Almighty, he becomes one of them. May Allah Almighty bless us with the lot of loving them. May He make us attain the Fayd and Barakah in their hearts, owing to this love. May He fill our hearts with these Nurs. A lover will always attain his darling. He will become like his darling. From the position of lover he will shift into being the loved one. The more he loves, the freer will he become of the limitations of his human properties, and the safer will he become from his harmful sensuous desires. He will attain love of Allah Almighty. Love caused creation of the universe and uncovered the hidden treasure.”
