Discipline in the path of the Seeker by Imam Abdullah al-Haddad
The seventh principle is to keep constant fast, for this act signifies opposition to and suppression of the carnal self, which is the root cause of all al-murld, the ground of separation and remoteness from Haqq. For no one can know God as He deserves to be known. Verily, every deed depends on its intentions, each man receivesaccording to what he intended.
Thus it is essential for a seeker to be like the corpse in the hands of the bathers ghussalso that he may attain communion with Haqq. When his rights are withheld, he is patient.

They were subsequently re-edited, reprinted, translateoand distributed by various inspired parties. You should know that this journey of the heart towards God requires observance of certain rules adabsome of which are related to the outward zahir and certain others adabb the inward batin. The salik is unaware of them, and even if he is aware, he does not know how to cure his nafs.
Complaint against the lord by someone who claims to be his slave and sulhk is a shortcoming in one’s love, servitude and devotion. Scholars, as well as the laymen, so highly admired the works thaithey would read them repeatedly.
