I wonder what these people think friendship with God is.
That God who created the heavens, who created the earth, who made the universe appear-
is His friendship gained so easily that you come in and sit before Him, you talk and you listen?
Do you fancy this is a soup kitchen?
You come in and you drink it down?
Then you just leave?

Shaykh Saleh al-Jaafari says in a poem:
بالله يا ابن الأكرمين تكرّما * العمر ولّى والزمان قد انقضى والشيب لاح بعارضي سبحان من * قَلَبَ السّواد فليت قلبي أبيضا
