Salam 'Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh

I cannot stress how much benefit you will get from reading this book: http://www.al-islam.org/elixiroflove/

I beg you all to read it, you will not regret it. It will change your life. May Allah s.w.t Bless Shaykh Rajab Ali Khayyat and grant him his love inshallah.

I have seen someone else post this book in another thread to do with asceticism, This book doesn't teach you asceticism, it teaches you love. It helps you understand what you have to do to gain the Love of your Creator Allah s.w.t

There are many examples I will post a few so you see how amazing this book is;

Visiting the Malakut (the Celestial Kingdom)!

.

Visiting the Malakut of the heavens and the earth with the eye of the heart is a prologue to attaining the high status of intuition of certitude.

.

(So also We show Abraham the power and the laws of the heavens and the earth, that he might (with understanding) have certitude.) (Al An'am: 75)

.

The Holy Prophet (s) is quoted as saying:

.

"If it were not that devils are dominant over the hearts of human beings, they would be witnessing the Malakut."

All those who have been delivered from the snares of nafs and Satan, by tearing apart the heart's veils, are able to observe the Malakut of the heavens and the earth, and to bear witness to the Oneness of the Sacred Essence of God.

.

(There is no God but He: That is the witness of Allah, His angels, and those endowed with knowledge...) (Ale Imran: 18)

.

One of the Shaykh's disciples related: 'I asked the late Haj Muqaddas whether the following hadith attributed to the Holy Prophet (s) is correct:

.

."If it were not that devils are dominant over the hearts of human beings, they would be witnessing the Malakut."

He answered: 'Yes.'

.

I asked: 'Do you see the Malakut of the heavens and the earth?

.

'No, but Shaykh Rajab Ali Khayyat does!' He replied.

.

Here is another amazing part from the book;

.

What have you done for God's Sake?

.

One of the Shaykh's children related the following account: 'One day my father and I went to Bibi Shahrbano.

.

On the way we ran into an ascetic, and my father asked him:

.

"What has been the outcome of your (ascetic) self-discipline?"

.

The ascetic bowed down and picked up a stone from the ground.

The stone turned into a pear and he offered it to my father, saying: 'Here you are, help yourself!

.

My father cast a glance at him and said:

.

"You did this for me, let me know what you have done for God?!" Hearing this, the ascetic burst into tears!;

..

Once again I will say I cannot stress the importance of reading this book, it will change your lives, If you cannot be bothered to read it just read a few pages, it is not like an ordinary chapter book where you sit reading for hours, it is just many different bits of advice and examples that happened in real life that will help you leave the love of the Dunya and love nothing save Allah s.w.t

.

I really hope you decide to read the book and inshallah it benefits you.

Dedicating the Work for God

One of the Shaykh's friends quotes him as saying: "In the evenings, I used to sit in Masjid-i Jum'a of Tehran correcting peoples' recitation of Sura al-Hamd and Sura al-Tawhid. Once, two kids were quarrelling, one beating the other. The latter came sat next to me to evade being beaten any more. I took the chance and asked him to recite his Al-Hamd and Sura al-Tawhidand helped him to correct them. This took all my time that night. The next night, a dervish came to me and said: I know the science of kimiya(alchemy), simiya (the producing of vision), himiya (the subjugating of souls), and limiya (magic) and came here to impart them to you, in exchange for the reward of what you did last night.'

I answered to him: No! If these were of any use, you would have kept them for yourself !"

Self-Sacrifice on the New Year's Eve

The late Shaykh Abd al-Karim Hamid relates: 'I was working as an errand-boy at the Shaykh's shop for one toman a day. On the New year's eve, the reverend Shaykh had fifteen tomans; he gave me some money to provide rice and deliver to some addresses, and at last five tomans was left that he gave to me!'

'I thought to myself: Is he going home empty-handed on the eve of the New Year? And at the same time his son's trouser leg was torn. So, I left the money he had given to me in the counter's drawer and ran away. Whatever the Shaykh shouted I did not return. When I got home I found he had been chasing me. He said:

"Why did not you take money?" And he insistently gave the money to me!

I actually saw the vids before reading the book properly, but the videos are just sections taken from the book the book has much more information. Still nice to watch the videos too :)

Jazakallah For posting, it will be very beneficial for those who prefer to watch the video rather than read the book in PDF.
