The point of being afflicted

Maulana Rumi, may Allah be pleased with him, said:

He has afflicted you from every direction in order to pull you back to the Directionless.

We can, regardless of our own individual state, derive many teachings from this short statement, which is why this student is going to leave this quote here so that she can reflect more clearly.

    Ma sha Allah… I don’t even know how to express the feelings that ran across my heart and grabbed my soul upon reading this.
