Tariqa trains and teaches ego control. Only then can man become perfect. The way of Maulana is to love Akhira. This is real iman, it is to like what the Prophet (sas) liked. Spirituality can only grow when love for Allah becomes real. Beware of those whose desires for dunya are growing. If not you will be the losers.

Allah loves the thankful servant. Be grateful. Don’t complain about Black Magic. Driven by emotionality, it is powerless against belief in Allah. His manifestation cannot be made invisible.
