The Majesty of the Ka'bah and the Awliya

Referring to the overpowering majesty of the Holy Kaabah (the House of Allah), Pir Seyyid Mehr Ali (May Allah be pleased with Him) said that in the presence of that august structure even eminent Awlia-Allah were reduced to the stature of ordinary human being. Within those holy precincts, the spiritual light of Awlia-Allah was dimmed to such an extent that it became difficult to distinguish between Wali and non-Wali. Even though thousands of Awlia-Allah (friends of Allah) are buried there, no one knows who they are and where they lie in rest.
