Where to find Safety

Hadhrat Sufyaan Thauri (rahmatullahi alayh) said:

"I heard from Hadhrat Ja`far Saadiq (rahmatullahi alayh) that safety has almost disappeared so much so that searching for it has become obscure. If there is safety in anything, it is in anonymity. If it is not in anonymity then it is in solitude, but this is not equal to anonymity. If it is not in solitude then it is in silence, but this is not equal to solitude. If it is not in silence, then it is in the discourses of the pious people of bygone times. A fortunate man is he who finds solitude in his heart."

Dua is to abandon sins. Dua is the tongue of love for the Beloved. Dua is the sinner’s communion with Allah Ta’ala. Dua is to face Allah Ta’ala with the tongue of shame. -- MASHAAIKH
