In Case You Forget…

“Adorn yourself with the suhbat (company) and teachings of the pious.  Listen attentively to the advice they give, and implement it in your life with scrupulousness.  Many people complain saying, “We can not remember everything  the pious people say, so what then is the benefit of listening?”  Don’t worry about trying to remember everything.  Hazrat Hakeem-ul-Ummat (RA) would say, “A person does not remember what they eat all the time, but still the effects of the the nutrients benefit the body.  Similarly if you forget the statements and advice of the Ahlullah then still it is not void of benefit.  The spiritual effects and benefits remain, and anyways, the environment and company one keeps will always have an effect regardless.”

-Baatein Unki Yaad Raheingi pg. 139
