Signs of annihilation


Shaykh Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Buzaydi (may Allah have mercy on him) said,

“There are three signs that indicate that a person is of those who are annihilated  in the Divine Entity (fani fil-Allah).

First, there is complete shunning of this world. inwardly and outwardly.

Second, there is quietude in humiliation by choice.

Third, there is withstanding of all people’s harm with a good disposition of the soul.”
