I recently read the Secret of Secrets by Shaykh Sayed Adbul Qadir Jilani (may Allah be pleased with Them) and something seemed to make sense. In truth, I have always felt a tormented and troubled soul. I have never fitted in with friends or even family and have never understood my own depths. Almost as though something was inherited by me or found by me without realizing. I have felt this way since the age of 7-8 and it has only ever become more and more powerful. Is the spiritual journey my destiny? Or am i insane?
It is good to feel a strong sense of spiritual purpose from the Frequentation of Awliya. That is no doubt each person’s share of the Prophetic Light that shone into us on the Day of Promises, as Mawlana said, and each received something special.
