The Path of Truth

An intending disciple said to Dhūl-Nūn, the Egyptian:

“Above everything in this world I wish to enroll in the Path of Truth.”

Dhūl-Nūn told him:

“You can accompany our caravan only if you first accept two things. One is that you will have to do things which you do not want to do. The other is that you will not be permitted to do things which you desire to do. It is ‘wanting’ which stands between man and the Path of Truth.”

Dhūl Nūn Al Misrī (rahimahullah)
