“Are you mad?”

“You are, for sure, insane.”

“Are you out of your mind?”

These are some of the compliments everyone who is sincerely practicing his deen gets.

Please, view them in the following context.

Commenting on the verse 25 of surah al-Mominoon,

ان ھو الا رجل بھ جنة

Hazrat Hakeem ul Ummat Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanawi ra said:

ِFrom this we come to know that such a state (hal) is very much praiseworthy (mehmood) that is considered by the nescient individuals (mahjoobeen) to be insanity. This is achieved by excellence of annihilation (fana). ”
