Shaikh Abu ‘Abd al-Rehman al-Sulami (Allah ahve mercy on him) said,
Faqr: utter need, is one of the traits of servanthood (abdiyet).
In servitude there is neither arrogance nor pride, but rather humble submission and compliance.
Faqr is a fabric, the wrap of which is contentment with Allah (qana’a) and and the weft of which is humble submission (al-tawadhu).
