32. Ahmad ibn Abi ‘l-Hawari



He was famous saint of Islamic law and mysticism. He possessed many other qualities in him and as per the saying of writer he was sweet basil of
Syria. He was disciple of Suleiman Darai and he also acquired knowledge from Suafian Bin Ayena. There was so much effect in his preaching .

After attaining knowledge he used to busy in the study of books but afterwards he has thrown all books in the river and he told “ After obtaining the goal there is no need of logic and guides”. But some persons say his knowledge is due to the ecstacy. He agreed with his teacher Suleiman Darai that both should not disagree in any matter. Once Suleiman was in the condition of ecstacy and he went to him and told “ Oven is hot and so it will be done as per his order?.” But Suleiman was in thE condition of ecstacy and told him to go and sit there in the oven . So as per the agreement he went there and sat in the oven. After some time when Suleiman was remembered that he told him in the condition of ecstacy to go there and sit. So when he searched him and the persons found him in the oven . When Suleiman asked him to come out then he left that place but fire not affected him .

He told “If a person not regretted by heart and if it is oral then it is useless. If there is no efforts in the worship and in the mystic exercise then there is no escape from the sins.” After this act there will possibility of friendship and one will get the sight of Allah . Mystic knowledge increases as per the wisdom. The persons who have fear of Allah will depend upon hopefulness.

It is good to weep for the waste of time .The mystic person’s enemy is the love of the world. One who does not knows his soul then he will become proudy. There is no big problem than carelessness and hard heartedness .The prophets thought death is not good thing because it will discontinue the remembrance of Allah. One who likes worship and such person will become beloved of Allah. One who love Allah to get his undeserved favor then he will become polytheist. One who love Allah without any desires then he will become his beloved one.
