Excerpt from Opening of the Unseen (Futuh-al-Ghaib)

Mehboob-e-subhani Ghaus-ul-azam- Sheikh Sayyidna Abdul Qadir Jilani Al-Hassani wal-Hussaini (RA) said, "Polytheism [shirk] is not merely the worship of idols. It is also polytheism to yield to your own passionate desire, and to equate with your Lord anything whatsoever besides Him, be it of this world and its contents …or of the Hereafter and what is contained therein. What is besides Him (Almighty and Glorious is He) is other than He, so when you rely on anything other than Him you are associating something else with Him (Almighty and Glorious is He). Therefore be wary and do not relax your guard, be fearful and do not develop a sense of security, and keep your wits about you so that you do not become careless and complacent."(Excerpt from Futuh-al-Ghaib)
