The Cure for Madness!
Abu Muslim al khawlaani would frequently perform dhikr, his tongue would always move in the remembrance of Allah and so a man asked one of his companions, ‘Is your friend mad?’ Abu Muslim replied,
‘My brother, no, rather this is the cure for madness!’
al-Hasan said, while describing them, 'When the ignoramus looks at them, he thinks them ill, yet far are they from illness! He would say they have lost their minds, indeed they have lost their minds to a great matter, far loftier than their accusations, by Allaah they are busied with it from your worldly lot!'
