Imam Qushayri : Of invocations

دعاء العامة بالأقوال، ودعاء الزهاد بالأفعال، ودعاء العارفين بالأحوال.
The invocations of the common people are through words; the invocation of those who have given up their attachemnt to this life are through their actions; the invocation of the Knowers are through the states of their hearts.
May my yearning to You turn from state (Hal) to station (Maqam) and abode (Manzel).
