Hakim al Umma Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanawi (Allah have mercy on him) said,
‘Torch your desires!
Burn your opinions!
Adopt absolute annihilation. And consign your affairs to Allah completely.
Try your best to please Allah.
Who are you to aspire for perfection?
I swear by Allah. If an individual is aware of his own reality than all claims of aspiring self perfection would collapse and flee from his mind.’
