Public Benefit by Kalim's Sayings - 19

(21)   People of Allah are not overwhelmed by anybody. This is because they are satisfied with the present and their family. From Prophets (AS) to Friends (of Allah) it is the same. (Though, to begin with, their state might have been contrary to it but at last they reached a state of satisfaction.) If there was some poverty then that too was voluntary and not as an infliction. Because of this satisfaction they were completely free from the any dependence on the rich people. They feared none. To the rich and the ruling people they expressed the truth according to their status. They were not overwhelmed by any body.
