Sufism is to protect one’s heart from bad thoughts and from worldly inclinations. (viii) Yad Dasht (Recollection)– It means continuous remembrance. When the seeker through practice becomes so apt that the remembrance continues in the heart effortlessly on its own, it is called Yad dasht .

One of the most basic of these is that there must be a harmony between the sender and the receiver, both in the world of nature, and in the world of the spirit-the two are, for Sufis, one realm of being. In the spiritual domain, such harmony consists in understanding, and that depends upon the inherent capability of the receiver.

Not a primer on Sufism. Mostly a compilation of various ahadeeth concerning four primary tenets of Sufism: repentance, sincerity, remembrance, and love. The little original commentary is found in the epilogue. Al-Ba'uniyyah does include many of her own original poems, though, and they are wondrous.
