“The sacred words of the saints are gathered from the Light of the Muhammadan Reality. The speech of the saints deserves to be treated with the same respect as the Qur’an and the Prophetic tradition [hadith]. If someone seeks good fortune for himself, he must accord due reverence to the speech of the saints.“–Rashahat, Mawlana ‘Abd al-Rahman Jami
Once one’s heart is opened, he is no longer in need of studying many books, but rather, books may be written from his sayings. Once one has reached this station, one’s knowledge is always fresh, not stale, and easily digestible like delicious food which delights those who eat it; not like stale, old food which has been sitting on a shelf for years. The words of Saints are always fresh because they are continually absorbing new knowledge from the Prophet’s (S) heart. Now such people are very few, and most of them are hidden, while many other people are dishing out old, stale knowledge which no one derives any benefit from; hearts always long for the living teaching, but that is to be found only with very few.
