Roots and Branches

“Himmas are roots and acts are branches. According to the greatness of the roots the branches are great. According to the weakness of the roots the branches are week. Roots mend branches if they are broken and branches do not mend roots. Had it not been for roots branches would not exist… had it not been for branches roots would not have been recognised.”

– Shaykh ‘Ali al-Jamal
