That Which The Heart Rides Upon

“The body should be preserved and tended with care since it is the frame of the heart.

As a camel is to a pilgrim, so the body is like an animal upon which the heart rides.

The pilgrim is obliged to give food and water to his camel, and to the treat it with attention, that he may read the end of his journey in safety, and by its means be successful in the object for which he travels.

But should the pilgrim be busy with his camel day and night, and should expend all his capital in feeding it, he would lose all that he possessed and would be the victim of unceasing regrets, and ruin would ensue.

Just so is it with the man in general.

If he passes all his days in attending to the preservation of the body, and spend the capital of his life in providing food and drink for the body, he will not reach the mansions of felicity but will wander in the wilderness of destruction, without capital, penniless and a naked vagabond.”

~ Imam Al-Ghazali
