The khidmah and raising up of people

That people serve others. Their hearts are moved. The hearts are alive and awake and say “Look at these people, they need help, these children are not educated. Look at these children, they have no doctors. Look at what is happening, it is unjust and we must put it right”.
These hearts that serve others. This is the beginning of a change. But there is a higher stage which is that you say “I have to serve Allah, and how do I serve Allah?”
The first stage is that the child says “I need it and I take it”.
The second stage is that the man says “They need it and I give it”.
The third stage is “I need Allah, we are needy, we need Allah”.
Once you know that you need Allah then you call on him.
And that is not the end of the affair.
That is the beginning of the affair.
Because these ones who call on Allah with sincerity will turn the world upsidedown.
These are the people that will make the world new.

– Sidna Shaykh Dr Abdalqadir as-Sufi
