On one of our short walks with Shaykh Mokhtar, we followed him as he lead us up a windy road amongst tall trees, blue skies and the sounds of nature in its innocence.
At one point, while we were in the remembrance of Allah, we stopped and gazed out over a beautiful vista. Lo and behold, many of us noticed at that point that we had risen above the clouds.
It is a wondrous thing what following a spiritual mentor can do for you and where it can take you.
May Allah allow us all to journey in suhba to the companionship of Allah and His Beloved, and may the mentorship of our teachers help us to rise heavenwards, beyond our material, earth-insistent nature. Amin.
