This is the first of a series of articles the interpreter has been asked to write on "traditional Islamic spirituality," a science that deals with answering this summons, lifting the heart from the narrowness of the self to the limitlessness of the knowledge and love of the Divine. One of the signs of relying on deeds is loss of hope when a misstep occurs. The sheikh begins his book with this key aphorism because it is of the adab or "proper way" of travelling the spiritual path to focus upon tawhid or the "Divine Oneness," in this context meaning to rely upon Allah, not on works, since. The practice of this knowledge, inwardly and outwardly, with heart and limbs, is the spiritual path or tariqa. Works, whether prayer, or the dhikr or "remembrance" of Allah, or fasting, or jihad, do not cause one to reach the end of the path, but are merely proper manners before the majesty of the Divine while on it.
