flying_birdsRābi‘ah Baṣriyah (rahmatullahi alayhaa) used to say,

People think that a friend of Allāh ta’ala is one who can  fly in the sky, walk on water or perform other supernatural feats.

Birds fly in the air, fish swim in the water, yet that does not make them of an exceptional status or beloved to Allāh ta’ala!

In reality, one attains the special friendship of Allāh ta’ala by practising Dīn in its entirety.

Shaykh Muhammad Saleem Dhorat
