Hadrat Sayyiduna Huzaifah Mir’ashi – may Allah be pleased with him – narrates that once when Hadrat Sayyiduna Shaqeeq Balkhi – may Allah be pleased with him – arrived in Mecca Shareef, at the time also, the great Saint, Hadrat Sayyiduna Ebrahim bin Adham – may Allah be pleased with him,  was also present in the blessed city. Both of them then met in the Haram Shareef. Hadrat Sayyiduna Ebrahim bin Adham – may Allah be pleased with him – then asked, “What is the state of you people when it comes to Rizq or sustenance.”

 

Hadrat Sayyiduna Shaqeeq Balkhi – may Allah be pleased with him – replied, “If we receive anything, then we eat it and if we do not receive anything, then we display patience.”

 

Hadrat Sayyiduna Ebrahim bin Adham – may Allah be pleased with him – replied, “This is the condition of the dog in Balkh. When they receive anything, they also consume it and when they get nothing, they display patience.”

 

Hadrat Sayyiduna Shaqeeq Balkhi – may Allah be pleased with him – then asked him, “Explain to us your state and condition.”

He replied, “Our condition is such is that when we receive anything, we give it away in charity, (Sadqah), and when we are hungry, we make the Dhikr of Allah Almighty and praise Him and also give thanks for our state and condition.”

 

When Hadrat Sayyiduna Shaqeeq Balkhi – may Allah be pleased with him – heard these words, he sat in front and said, “O Abu Ishaq! From today you are our teacher.” (Uyunul Hikaayah)

 

Hadrat Sayyiduna Ahmed bin Mohammed Sufi – may Allah be pleased with him – narrates that he heard the following incident from his teacher, Hadrat Sayyiduna Abu Abdullah bin Abu Shaybah – may Allah be pleased with him – who states that, “Once, I was in the Baitul Muqaddas and decided that today I would like to be alone in the Masjid and continue my Ibadah. However, I was not given permission to do so. A few days later, I again arrived in the Masjid and saw a few sheets of material. After ‘Isha, I hid behind these sheets. After everyone had left, the door was closed by the keeper and when I saw that no one had noticed me, I came out in the open.  However, suddenly, the Mehrab opened on its own and one person entered this area. And before I knew it, seven people entered this private area. When I saw them, I also felt extreme awe. I continued to look at them in this state of awe and few moments before the break of the dawn, these people exited from the same area and went outside. The wall again opened and closed for them.” (Uyunul Hikaayah)
