Perfect Piety

The perfect salik is not an ecstatic devotee lost in contemplation of Oneness, nor a saintly recluse shunning all commerce with mankind, but “the true saint” goes in and out amongst the people and eats and sleeps with them and buys and sells in the market and marries and takes part in social intercourse, and never forgets Allah for a single moment.
  Hazrat Abu Sa‘id Ibn Abi-L-Khayr (RA)
