Who Is a True Man ?


True Man

source :http://red-sulphur.org/Submitted by Riadi

If you wish to draw near to God, you must seek God in the hearts of others. You should speak well of all, whether present or absent. If you seek to be a light to guide others, then, like the sun, you must show the same face to all. To bring joy to a single heart is better than to build many shrines for worship, and to enslave one soul by kindness is worth more than the setting free of a thousand slaves.

The true man of God sits in the midst of his fellowmen, and rises up and cats and sleeps and buys and sells and gives and takes in the bazaars, and marries and has social intercourse with others, and yet is never for one moment forgetful of God.

Abu Said ibn Abi al-Khair

    spiritual needs are amongst the basic needs of a man.A spiritual person must be true to his lord, he must have a guru to guide him, and most importantly the person should know that the god has chosen him for his path.
