Grandshaykh was saying that if you like to take benefit from listening
or attending a meeting you must be present in body and heart, but so
many people are just like empty jars, sitting. Divine Knowledges pour
out when the heart is present. It means when listening with the ears of
your heart it gives you Divine Powers.
PART 2 Our
Grandshaykh (qs) said that if one person in a meeting is scratching his
head, the suhbah must come down seven degrees and the scratching one
may lose that Divine outpouring. But worse, some careless people are
speaking with each other, some watching the door to see who is coming
and going, some looking at the clock, and the power is going down.

yourself, "My heart is in the shaykh's hands and he is in relationship
with the Prophet ﷺ and the Prophet is in the Divine Presence", you will
not be distracted.
Grandshaykh (q) told of two mureeds in his homeland: one was in
seclusion for spiritual practice; the second came one day by order of

instructions when they reached the fields of the one in seclusion.

my brother, turn back to your seclusion, you are leaving pearls and
turning to fields."
attention span is very short. Psychologists say in the first fifteen
minutes we have keen attention, afterwards decreasing. Our Grandshaykh
(qs) says not to make any meeting more than three hours, even though
people may be strongly interested. As much as you can make it shorter
more benefit comes, especially in our time. . Sultan al-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil an-Naqshbandi, 1979 💞 . @hishamkabbani@drnourkabbani@naqshbandistaff Facebook.com/MawlanaShaykh Facebook.com/HishamKabbani Facebook.com/DrNourKabbani Facebook.com/Sufilive
