​The Heart has finally stilled
So live contentedly thee Body
This bliss is everlasting and eternal
I have become the neighbour of the Beloved
And the one who is near Him lives in plenitude

So live in God’s sanctuary, under His banner
There is no fear in this dwelling; no sorrow
Do not fear loss because you have an abode
Of all desires; you have support from His Hands
He is the God of beauty, the sender of secret counsel
He is in all splendours the One and the Singular

(Shaykh Ali Wafa QAS)

Sanctity and Mysticism in Medieval Egypt: The Wafa Sufi Order and the Legacy of Ibn Arabi 
By Richard J. A. McGregor (Author)

Description: 


Using the original writings of two Egyptian Sufis, Muhammad Wafa' and his son 'Ali, this book shows how the Islamic idea of sainthood developed in the medieval period. Although without a church to canonize its "saints," the Islamic tradition nevertheless debated and developed a variety of ideas concerning miracles, sanctity, saintly intermediaries, and pious role models. In the writings of the Wafa's, a complete mystical worldview unfolds, one with a distinct doctrine of sainthood and a novel understanding of the apocalypse. Using almost entirely unedited manuscript sources, author Richard J. A. McGregor shows in detail how Muh\ammad and 'Ali Wafa' drew on earlier philosophical and gnostic currents to construct their own mystical theories and notes their debt to the Sufi order of the Shadhiliyya, the mystic al-Tirmidhi, and the great Sufi thinker Ibn Arabi. Notably, although located firmly within the Sunni tradition, the Wafa's felt free to draw on Shi'ite ideas for the construction of their own theory of the final great saint.
