Rashid al-Din Maybudi on Quran 1:5

Peace, one and all…


‘You alone do we worship and from You alone do we seek help’ (Quran 1:5)

‘This alludes to two of the religion’s great pillars, around which revolves the travelling of the religious. The first is to adorn the soul through worship and self-purification. It is to keep oneself adorned with a worship that is not mere lip-service and an obedience that has no hypocrisy. The other is to purify the soul of associating others with God and of paying attention to power and strength. It is to purify one’s own soul, to keep it cleansed of associationism and corruption, and not to depend on one’s own power and strength.’
