Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (R.A.): Being Addressed with Words of the Qur'an

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
The great Sufi Shaikh, Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (Rahimahullah) says, while describing the spiritual path of “self-annihilation”:

(When) you are adorned with ornaments and dressed and perfumed and incensed, then you are taken to the Great King (Allah) and addressed with the words:

إِنَّكَ الْيَوْمَ لَدَيْنَا مَكِينٌ أَمِينٌ

Translation: Surely, thou art in Our presence today dignified, trusted (12:54)

In other words, when a person reaches the station of self-annihilation (Fana), he will be addressed by Allah with a Revelation of an Ayah of the Qur’an al-Karim.
