Istiqama

Istiqama is being straight. Its definition is to put in practice the sunna of the Messenger – his words, his acts and his states – according to your knowledge of them and your capacity to follow them. Remember that no one can attain to his station of gnosis and radiance, while it is incumbent on us to follow in the dust of his footsteps.

– Sidna Shaykh Dr Abdalqadir as-Sufi
