are we civilized...

* "i wonder about those seeking purity, when afflicted with hardship, complains about it..." (ruumi, in similar tone)

* the more we 'have', the more we are 'distracted' from Him

* attachment to ourselves or anything else is illusory - free fall of the qalb

tidbits from shaykh mokhtar's lecture @ muktamar icna southeast, atlanta, thanksgiving weekend

Certainly, we often forget that true civilization, is the definition that Allah has given. Not the ever-changing definitions given by human beings. Definitions that are inter-changeable and are taken most of the time to suit the whims and fancies of the nafs.

true *thinkers*, especially those guided by revelation, will without doubt, arrive at the exact things that Allah has decreed/told us.
