Bawa Muhaiyaddeen on Divorce

Bawa Muhaiyaddeen said: “We must divorce ourselves from three things — earth, gold, and sensual pleasures. That is why in Arabic, one must say three times, “Talaq, talaq, talaq, I divorce you, I divorce you, I divorce you.” We must free ourselves from our desire for earth, gold, and sensual pleasures and then escape. Otherwise, we have many small deaths, and each time we wake up again. But, if we kill our desires, that will be the great death. If we divorce ourselves from these desires, then we make our own death die. Allah has put all these things to death.”

Ali ibn Abi Talib said about this world: “I have divorced you three times and will never return to you again.”
