The reply to my letter came saying, ‘Allah the Almighty tries our followers, when their sins increase, by poverty, and He may forgive many (of sins), and it is as your self said to you: poverty with us is better than wealth with our enemy.

We are a shelter for whoever resorts to us and a light for whoever seeks light, and preservation for whoever resorts to us.
