The Essence of Sulook

Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (RA) was not given the title of Hakeem-ul-Ummah, Mujaddid-ul-Millah for no reason.  His brilliance can be seen in every letter of his writings, and every word of his lectures and statements.  In two small phrases, he has summed up the essence of sulook.  He says, “The essence of sulook is only the following:

a) Evil traits are replaced with praiseworthy traits

b) Heedlessness of Allah is replaced with focusing on Allah”

    Allah akbar!

    Now we have the answer we were looking for whenever we are asked, or we ask ourselves, “So what is tasawwuf or [authentic] sufism?”

    Jazak Allahu khayra for this concise yet extremely beneficial statement.
