your Intention (Niyyat)
Before entering Miqat, which is the beginning of a great change and
revolution, you must declare your intention. What does this encompass?
It is the intention of a "transferral" from your house to the house of
people, from life to love, from the self to Allah, from slavery to freedom,
from racial discrimination to equality, sincerity and truth, from being
clothed to being naked, from a daily life to an eternal life and from selfishness
and aimlessness to devotion and responsibility. In summary, it is a transferral
into the state of "Ihram" .
Therefore, your intention must be strongly asserted. You will grow out
of your "shell" as do the seeds of dates. Being extremely conscious, you
must have faith in your heart. Enlighten your heart with the flame of love;
"shine" and "shine". Forget all about yourself! In the past, your life
was characterized by "negligence" and "ignorance" You were helpless in
all aspects of existence. Even in the realm of your job, you became a slave,
working either as a habit or by force! Now, shed this pattern of life!
Become genuinely "conscious" of Almighty Allah, the people and yourself!
Choose a new job, a new direction and a new "self"!
