Spiritual reformation

Hakeemul Ummat Hazrat Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanawi ra said:

“Spiritual development and training is related to acquisition of maqamat (spiritual stations), ahwal (spiritual states), acts of worship and their subtle affects, recieving waridat (divinely intutions) and warding off evil whispherings (khatirat).

It has been exprienced that without these essential components islah e batin (reformation of inner self) can not occur.”
