- each time a verse of Holy Qur'an or hadith is mentioned it brings great benefit to reader or writer
- we may write notes from the suhbat but without review they don't benefit
- people who love each other will always be together and cannot be separated
- no creature "unites" with Allah
- suhbat of mashaykh builds love
- those attending their association will never regret
- Reflect on Allah one hour; achieve seventy years of worship.
- mankind are awliya or common ones
- five benefits of relationship with true murshid:
1 - the shaykh can see all his mureeds and reach them
2 - mureeds benefit from shaykh and shaykh benefits from them
3 - love of the shaykh will make mureeds worship more
4 - belief in a saint makes one a saint
5 - association with the people around the shaykh

- keep the vow you made on Day of Promises
- your reality is still there in the Divine Presence, its reflection is here
- it is essential to make "bullet points" of shaykh's suhbats and reflect on them
