“Rabi‘ah Basriyah rahmatullaahi alayhaa used to say that people think that a friend of Allah Ta’ala is one who can  fly in the sky,


walk on water or perform other supernatural feats.

Birds fly in the air, fish swim in the water, yet that does not make them of an exceptional status or beloved to Allah Ta’ala!

In reality, one attains the special friendship of Allah Ta’ala by practising Deen in its entirety.”
