Chapter Summary

The chapter explains about the works of the 'dissolute' and the works of the 'deprived', i.e. those who worship out of habit and those who worship solely for their own benefit. The deceptive sweetness experienced by someone who has the wrong attitude when invoking blessings on the Prophet. Nature of mortal sins and the hadīths that deal with them. Means of livelihood are on the level of begging bowls. Major ritual impurity in the view of the Friends of God. The perfect Friend is capable of making a person reach God in one instant. But this depends on the death of the carnal soul. Loving all believers without distinction causes repentance to become established in the bondsman's body. The proper attitude when giving alms. Hypocrisy to be avoided at all cost. Al-Dabbāgh concludes that there are important benefits due to living among Muslims.

Keywords: Al-Dabbāgh; bondsman; hadīths
