Spiritual involvement


Shaykh Jalaluddin Thanesari (Allah have mercy on him d.989 Hijra) said,

‘The seeker of truth suffices in the spiritual involvement (shugal e batini, i.e. methods of developing remembrance, concentration and awareness) after fulfilling the essential (faraidh) and Sunna actions. He does not stress on physical worship and supererogatory (nawafil) actions like the ascetics.’
