Begitu banyak murid mempunyai aspirasi tinggi (himma) dan mereka berkata, “Wahai Syekhku, aku meminta himma agar jiwaku dapat teraktivasi.” Syekh menjawab, “Wahai anakku, aku meminta khidmahmu.  Khidmah yang seperti apa?  Kau harus menjadi seperti diriku; ketika engkau seperti diriku, kekuatan spiritualku bisa sampai kepadamu, tetapi bila kita tidak mempunyai jenis logam yang sama, alirannya tidak bisa berjalan melalui dirimu: aku dari tembaga, kau jangan terus menjadi batu.”

— Sultanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil an Naqshbandi

 

So many murids have high spiritual aspiration (Himma) and they say: “Oh my Sheikh, I am asking for himma in order that my soul be activated.” The Sheikh replies: “Oh my son, I am asking service from you (Khidma). What is this service? You must be like me; when you are like me, my spiritual powers may come to you, but if we are not of the same kind of metal, the current can’t pass through you: I am copper, you must not remain stone.” 

— Sultanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil an Naqshbandi
