Whoever criticizes a Sufi in reality does the Sufi a good turn, for the Sufi shies away from praise. The Sufi is an enemy of vanity, hence whoever speaks evil of the Sufi’s ego, speaks evil of the Sufi’s enemy, and therefore helps them. “Things become clear through their opposites.” So the Sufi knows the critic is not really their enemy, but their friend. ~ Mevlana Rumi [Fihi Ma Fihi]
