Power of the King

When a king becomes angry he shakes up everybody. How to humour him? Please the Vizier. Who is the Vizier for us? Our beloved Prophet, may Peace and Blessings of Lord Almighty be upon him. To please him we should follow him. It should also have the purity of intent (ikhlas). Today, though we talk of it, but we do not practice it. It is like reading the words but not understanding the meaning. It is like knowing the name of the sweets but not knowing their taste. That is why Maulana Rasheed Ahmed Gangohi (RA) went to Haji Sahab(NM). Haji Sahab (NM) did not know the names of the sweets but he knew the taste. Our condition today mirrors that. We know the names of the sweets but do not know their taste.
