Iztirar in prayer


“The effectiveness of prayer in being accepted emerges when it reaches a state of extreme anguish and fervour [iztirar]. Once this profound iztirar is established, signs and means of its acceptance begin to manifest from Allah the Almighty. First, preparations are made in the heavens, and thereafter, they reveal their effects on earth. This is no minor matter but a grand reality; indeed, the truth is that anyone who wishes to witness divine manifestations should engage in prayer.”

(Al Hakam, Vol. 8, No. 13, 24 April 1904, p. 6)
