Reasons for not recognizing the pious!




Shaykh Shah Wasiullah (Allah have mercy on him) said,

‘The reasons why it is becoming difficult to recognize the pious are,

1. The prevalent and rampant assumption that pious do not exist (anymore),

2. Lack of yearning and desire (talub, i.e. to seek Allah’s pleasure)

3. Absence of sincerity (in this search particularly and in general also).’
