Niyat

Bismi'llah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim...for the sake of Prophet Muhammad saws and Sheikh Nazim may Allah protect his secret.


Our Grandsheikh Shah Bahauddin Naqshband may Allah sanctify his soul & bless his secret said:

'Intention, ‘Niyat’, is very important. It consists of three letters: ‘Nun’, which represents the ‘Nur Allah’, the Light of God; ‘Ya’, which represents the ‘Yad Allah’, the Hand of God; and ‘Ha’, which represents ‘Hidayatullah’, the guidance of Allah. Niyat is the breeze of the soul, coming from the unseen world, not from the material.'

the 'breeze from the unseen world' is a beautiful description of niyat, and isn't it by our intentions that we are judged?

Yep .. and I always tend to think that we are, more or less, in this world, acording to how we were and with what alacrity we responded on the Day of "Am I not your Lord?"
