From the words of Sayyidil Habib Umar bin Hafiz, may Allah preserve him:
Do we not passionately love this God (Al-Ilah)? Do we not yearn for this God? This is your God, O my beloved brothers, what has distracted us from Him?! What has cut us off from Him?! What has come between us and Him? The whole creation fades away upon the mention of the Creator. Your God, O dear friend is better for you!
وَمَنْ أَوْفَىٰ بِعَهْدِهِ مِنَ اللَّهِ
Meaning: And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? (9:111)
فاستَبشِرُوا بِبَيْعِكُمُ الَّذِى بَايَعْتُم بِهِ وَذَلِكَ هُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ
Meaning: So rejoice in your transaction, which you have contracted. And it is that which is the great attainment. (9:111)
And of their characteristics we read (in the following verse):
التَّائِبُونَ الْعَابِدُونَ الْحَامِدُونَ السَّائِحُونَ الرَّاكِعُونَ السَّاجِدُونَ الْآمِرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَالنَّاهُونَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَالْحَافِظُونَ لِحُدُودِ اللَّهِ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
Meaning: Such believers are] the repentant, the worshippers, the praisers [of Allah ], the travelers [for His cause], those who bow and prostrate [in prayer], those who enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong, and those who observe the limits [set by] Allah . And give good tidings to the believers (9:112)
The tongue of the Chosen One ﷺ recited these verses, upon the hearts and intellects of the companions till they were moved and filled with delight and declared: “A profitable transaction indeed! We will never revoke nor demand its cancellation!” They fulfilled their promise (May Allah be pleased with them).
May Allah make us see their blessed faces on the day of judgement in the home of honour, may Allah not separate us from them in that home for indeed He is the most Noblest and Merciful of those who show mercy.
