In this episode, Shaykh Zahir Bacchus covers the 133rd aphorism of the Hikam : “Being shielded is of two kinds: being shielded from disobedience, and being shielded in disobedience. The ordinary ask Allah Most High to shield them in disobedience lest they fall from the regard of other people; while the elect ask Allah to be shielded from it, lest they fall before the True King.”
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.
