Your own heart is the living place of the Universe’s essence. Salih rahimahu Llah always told his students,

If you constantly knock at someone’s door, one day it will be opened to you.

Rabia rahimahu Llah heard him say this and remarked,

Salih, how much longer do you intend to preach this in the future tense, saying ‘Will be opened?’ Was the door ever closed?

Salih bowed in acknowledgement.
