This week’s sohbet centered around relationships, specifically how we negotiate needs and responsibilities with our partners and family members. Shaykh Ibrahim reminded us of the primacy of the relationship with Allah, the One. This is the most important relationship. When your relationship with your Heart is good, when you are connected to the Source, all other relationships fall into place. Shaykh also stressed the importance of communication. Relationships are there to teach us about each other and ourselves, and we need to learn how to express ourselves clearly in order to be able to live with each other. Also, Sufism is about surrender, and not about you! How much can you get out of the way and let Allah through?
