Robe of nearness

Shaykh Muhammad ibn al-Habib -rahimahu Llah- said in “Robe of Nearness” :

Strip yourself of all knowledge and understanding

So that you may obtain what the great awliya have obtained.

Freely offer up your nafs, you who desire union

And follow the Shaykh in whatever he indicates.

Witness the truth (haqiqat) in him, both in your essence

And your heart, annihilate yourself in him:

By him you will win the gift.

He is the light of the Messenger from every aspect

And the medicine of hearts, both openly and secretly.

Blessings be upon the Prophet and all his family

And Companions and all who direct people to him

And peace, fragrant with musk and every scent’

Full beauty and unrivalled sublimity.
