Arif-billah Shaykh Dr. Abdul Hayy Arifi (Allah have mercy on him) said;
‘For two minutes talk to Allah any time during the day telling Him,
“O Allah! I am inept, weak, unworthy, and unable to do any thing significant. Please, do have Your special benevolence for me.”
Say this all.
Can’t you even do this?
You certainly have the power to articulate this.
(And if you do so,) Then you will see how your (spiritual) condition changes (for the better).
This is an alchemy prescription by our Shaykh Hakim al-Umma (Allah have mercy on him).’
(Malfoozat e Arifi 58)
