(REALITY OF THE WORLDLY COMFORT)
O (you) the capricious (and sensual)! The worldly comfort is momentary like thunder light and its love is transitory like the darkness of the cloud. Neither one should show liking for its blessings nor should he grieve at its pain and sufferings. The wise person should avoid enmity. His piety should be more than the power and glory of his enemy. The gallantry and bravery of the People of Valor can be seen on the day of the battle and the trustworthiness and honesty of the trustworthy men can at the time of transactions and the love and faithfulness of the wife and children in the days of paucity and hunger and the reality of the friends in the days of misfortune and hardship!
O sagacious! When wealth has been got by a person, Shahwat becomes the servant of his wisdom and when he has fallen in sins; his wisdom also becomes the captive of the Shahwat. Stomach is the station of food for the body foster - whatever he stuffs inside it, if is Halal, it will foster Obedience and if it is dubious, the Course of Haq will remain invisible to you and if it is Haraam, sins will get increased!
(WHAT IS THE DEMAND OF VIRTUE?)
O Dervish! Secret of the Dervishes is Silence. That person, who says that, which is except Haq, he does not say nice word and that, which is Haq, cannot be accommodated in worship. Writer (Bahu Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe) says: I have brought [the information of] each and every thing". That is, by the reading of all the words are meant the meanings of pearls of Marifat.
(Saying of the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam)
