Habib Umar trans Sidi Yahya Rhodus 06-08

Dowra notes ten

Awarif Al Ma’arif

Worldly pleasures are nothing compared to heavenly pleasures

We must prepare for our eternal life

We must get closer to Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala in this life

We don’t have another opportunity to get closer to him and we must do this now

Don’t desire death because you may live to do good

We are ignorant of the true value of this world, our enemies laugh at us because they have busied us with the worst of things

Many a time, people are watching things that harm them

The people of heaven will not be remorseful

Don’t leave the prayer area unless you have to

The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) gave Fatima (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with her) invocations instead of a servant because he didn’t want her to turn to anything in the world

Beware of time being stolen from you, said a poet

The sincere a person shouldn’t be somewhere unless he is sure that it will benefit him

If a person who feels a spiritual state shouldn’t move or tear their clothes

Ka’b ibn zuhar (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) was given the cloak of the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) when he recited poetry in praise of him.
Many years later, Muawwiya (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) brought it from Ka’b’s children for 20,000 dirhams.

There was young companions, 16,17 years old, couldn’t sleep because they loved the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) so much, this was the state of Habib Jafar al Andulus (May Allah's Ta'ala mercy be with him)

O’ you who is seeking Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala, be firm and stand at his door.
