Supplication


When reason reaches its peak and the souls of His lovers feel helpless and
disabled, they grow restless and stretch their hands in supplication, seeking
comfort for their burning souls. When every manner of search within their power
has been consumed, the doorway to Him is opened.

    -Al-Hujwiri, “The Kashf al-Mahjub
