Moments of secrecy

The only way out of the moments of secrecy is chastity which is the true way out from insinuations of oneself that is full of evil, and a wall of shyness that we seek to protect ourselves from minor sins. Some people may think that feeling the pleasure of sin is beyond any feeling, but when regret finds its way to their hearts, they know the pain of self-lewdness, then they shall remember Allah’s Saying: “Ah! Woe to me! Would that I had never taken so-and-so as a Khalîl (an intimate friend)! * He indeed led me astray from the Reminder (this Qur’ân) after it had come to me. And Shaitân (Satan) is to man ever a deserter in the hour of need.” [Surat Al Furqan: 28-29].

Indeed, Allah created man weak, but by the mercy of Allah, He guided us to that secure fort in which we seek refuge against regret, indifference, and humiliation: “And whosoever fears Allâh and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty).” [Surat At-Talaq: 2]. Chastity is the mate of the blaming soul for it blames a person for every mistake, and soon it will become an assured soul that Allah loves and boasts of, therefore take the provision of piety and indulge into patience because it results in contentment without despair or boredom.

Dear beloved,

A soul loves desires because it is full of evil, and when it regrets, returned back, and became shy of what it is doing, it will become a blaming soul to its owner and regretting to its Lord because He is the only one who knows its secrets. Moreover, if it continues to watch its actions, Allah shall increase its discernment to become assured and comfortable with the presence of Allah. Then it years to sit at the gate of patient until it submits to its lord and sits at the gate of pious people, praising its lord and satisfying with His Judgment until it becomes of the winners by His Presence, Nearness, and Paradise.

“So (for me) patience is most fitting.” Do not you like to win the crown of chastity? Do not you want to sit under the shade of Allah? Do not you like to look at the face of Allah (Glory be to Him)? So, we should obey Him and do not follow our desires and lusts, but we should restrain our lusts and fight our desires to gain victory and success, and to wear the garment of piety “And the raiment of righteousness, that is better.” [Surat Al A`raf: 26]. So, patience should be followed by submission, followed by joy, followed by a Paradise which its width as the width of Heavens and the earth that was prepared for the pious.

And the last of our call is to praise Allah, the Lord of the worlds
