The five Characteristics are established on the basis of the six Divine Understandings. Without establishing these characteristics, which are the essence of Islam and Sufism, one’s actions will lack foundation. The power to create these Characteristics is brought together in the Means and Methods
of The Way to Live.
A person receives only that for which he strives.”
(Quran: An-Najm, 53:39)
Surely the Creator will give to one who works a recompense
in direct relation to his effort.
The principles outlined above contain the essence and totality of the spiritual path.
