Shaykh Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi Alayhi Rahma on The 40 Abdaal :
”O you who desire the spiritual abodes of the Substitutes (Abdaal),
without aspiring to the requisite actions,
Do not hanker after them in vain, for you cannot be one of
them without emulating their spiritual states.
Silence your heart; seclude yourself from all that brings you
down to other than the Beloved Master,
Be wakeful and hunger. Thus shall you be given their station?
and their company, in all your coming and going.
The House of Sainthood has various pillars, and our
masters who live there are the Substitutes.
Amidst silence and seclusion unceasing, hunger and
Vigilance, live those of pure virtue and noble eminence!”
