The Way of Poverty

“So the seeker must break out of his cultural mould and recognise that knowledge is the property of the poor. If poverty were eliminated, knowledge would be eliminated. It is the only clue we can leave in writing. The way of poverty is the way of knowledge. We write it on the cave wall. We write it on your heart”.

– From the poor slave, the helpless, the needy Abd al-Qadir as-Sufi

– Shaykh Dr. Abdalqadir as-Sufi, from the foreword to “The Meaning of Man”
