“ This is why reading the Quran purifies the heart.  You remember the prophets words and their states. Their forms unite with your spirit; they become your comrades and sit with you.  By means of that great, immortal, and infinite jewel I gained such a warm, high knowledge that I merged with it and became filled with its fire.”
