Tingkat perkembangan spiritual ada 3, yaitu:
The three levels of spiritual development are :
Mahabbat al-Mashaykh, “Love of the Shaykh,” to Mahabbat al-Habeeb, “Love of the Beloved (Prophet),” to Mahabbatullah, “Love of Allah.”
Then Hudooru ’l-mashaykh, “Presence of the Shaykh,” Hudooru ’l-Habeeb, “Presence of Prophet,” and Hudoorullah, “Presence of Allah.”
Then Fanaa’un fi ’l-mashaykh, “Annihilation in the Shaykh,” Fanaa’un fi’l-Habeeb, “Annihilation in Prophet,” and Fanaa’un fillah, “Annihilation in Allah.”
These are the three levels of love to Allah, His Prophet (s) and to people. When you love them, you will remember them at every moment and they will always be in front of you, just like your child is always in front of you, even when you are at work, from your love. No one can deny that, unless you are not married, in which case perhaps you may see your boyfriend or girlfriend. (Laughter) So people see something, especially ladies; when they see a new cream in the market they keep seeing it for days and months, even years, until their husband buys it !
So you can really see your child’s face, sorry to say, more than you can see your wife’s. When that love increases in your heart from your children to Prophet (s), miracles happen. I am giving you a simple way to understand because there might be some people saying, “Why do you say love of Prophet (s) or love awliyaullah or love of Allah? We cannot see anything.” No! You must imagine and think well about this.
Prophet (s) said:
تفكر ساعة خير من عبادة سبعين سنة
To remember Allah (swt) (contemplate or meditate) for one hour is better than seventy years of worship.
