Hakeemul Ummat Hazrat Mawlana Mohammad Ashraf Ali Thanawi ra said:
“The special relationship that develops as a result of excessive zikir (remembrance of Allah SWT) and being consistent in following His commands is called nisbat.
This nisbat ceases to exist if sin is committed.
However, if one was to repent (sincerely) it will return back.”
