In the Name of Allah, the Benevolent, the Merciful
Ibn `Allan al-Bakri mentions in his commentary on the Hikam of Abu Madyan that the great spiritual master Dhu’n Nun al-Masri said:
“The early Muslims (salaf) would counsel each other with three counsels:
First: Whoever rectifies their relationship with Allah, Allah rectifies their relationships with people.
Second: Whoever rectifies their inward, Allah rectifies their outward.
Third: Whoever rectifies their Hereafter, Allah rectifies their worldly life.” [Sharh al-Hikam al-Ghawthiyya, 111]
And Allah alone gives success.
