In the Hadith, we find it where the Noble Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:-- "FAQR IS MY PRIDE AND FAQR IS FROM ME."
As observed by Sidi Abdul Qadir al-Jilani, may Allah be Merciful to him, in his book, "SIR'RUL ASRAR", "Faqr does not mean poverty as is usually understood; rather it means to depend on none except Allah and to abdicate every pleasure and joy from heart except the pleasure of being close to Allah. When such a person gains this status, then this is called Fana-Fillah (annihilation in Allah) where nobody exists within his being except the only Entity, Allah." Note this well.
