When He opens a way for you and makes Himself known to you, then do not worry about your lack of deeds. He only opened the way for you because He desired to make Himself known to you. Do you not see that while He grants gnosis of Himself to you, you have only deeds to offer Him? What He brings you – What you bring Him – What a difference there is between them!

– Shaykh Ibn Ata’illah rahimahu Llah –
