Imam al-Junayd of Baghdad once said: “The path of the Sufis can only be reached by the one whose right hand holds the Qur’an and the left holds the practice (Sunnah) of the holy Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and grant him peace); he continues to move forward with the light emanating from these two lamps, so that he does not fall into the pits of superstition nor finds himself lost in the darkness of innovation.”
