067 – The Blessing of Daily Works

The Hikam

In this episode,  Shaykh Zahir Bacchus covers the 67th aphorism of the Hikam: “When you see a servant Allah most high has kept at daily works, letting him abide in them, while finding continuous divine help, by no means despite what his Master has bestowed him, merely because you do see in him, the mien of those of gnosis, or splendour of those in love. For had there been no fruit, there would be no work”.

This podcast covers “The Hikam”,  considered a classical masterpiece in spiritual literature – written by the great spiritual master of 13th/14th century Ibn Ata’illah. The Hikam is a book of spiritual aphorisms containing timeless and pure spiritual wisdom.
