Shams Tabrizi
Whoever lives as he sees fit will not die as he sees fit.
Tabrizi quotes
Intellect takes you to the door, but it doesn't take you into the house.
Tabrizi
Nothing kills the soul that commands to evil (Nafs al Ammarra) like seeing the beauty of the heart.




Tabrizi Shams quotes
Being the companion of the folk of this world is fire. There must be an Abraham if the fire is not going to burn [you].
Tabrizi Shams
You have to live with the people in hypocrisy for them to stay happy with you.
Shams Tabrizi quotes
Alms in secret extinguish the wrath of the Lord means you are so immersed in sincerity and in preserving that sincerity that you have no pleasure in giving alms.
Shams Tabrizi
When you oppose the shaykh, it's like the slave who kills himself over a quarrel with his master. Hey, why are you killing yourself over a quarrel?
He says, So my master will suffer loss.
Tabrizi Shams quotes
The salat can be made up for, but there is no making up for false show or outward worship without presence.
Tabrizi
He said The Sufi is the son of the moment.
Tabrizi Shams
There may be one fault in a man that conceals a thousand qualities, or one excellence that conceals a thousand faults. The little indicates much.
