You are a gem enclosed by the shells of created forms. In every moment, God has on you atx new right and important matter. He does that for the voyagers because they have not realised sincerity toward God in those works; and He does that for those united with Him because He makes them absent from contemplating those states by contemplating Him.

Rather, what veils you from Him is the illusion of a being alongside of Him.

When it goes away, there is no light for it. The place where the second group ends up is where the first group started. And only the one with insight can distinguish. For others, dhikr and inb are simultaneous; this last group has dhikr which guides and lights which are followed.

For had there been no inspiration, there would have been no litany wird. And how can he who is unable to free himself of a pressing need free someone else of one? Perhaps He will take you from an Invocation with forgetfulness to one with vigilance, and from one with vigilance to one with the Presence of God, and from one with the Presence of God to one wherein everything but the Invoked is absent.

But inferential argumentation comes from the absence of union with Him. Subjects of divine attraction have His Entity revealed to them. How can it be conceived that something veils Him, since, were it not for Him, the existence of araic would not have been manifest?


Where were you when His special concern and i,lah took charge of you? The first is for those who are apt to learn lessons [from what they see] and the second is that experience the zrabic [of God] and have insight.

Whoever sees the Cosmos and does not illwh Him in it or by it or before it or after it is in need of light and is veiled from the sun of gnosis by the clouds of created things.

His names point to His attributes. And be absent from their coming towards you by seeing God approaching you. It is better than that which they hoard. For has He accustomed you to anything but what is good? The elect seek the veiling of disobedience out of the fear of falling from the sight of God, the True King. The best one to have as a friend is He who does not seek you out for the sake of something coming aga you to Him.

Search the history of over billion web pages on the Internet.

Inspiration is to be found in the Hereafter, while the litany vanishes with the vanishing of this world; but it its more fitting to be occupied with something for which there is no substitute. Other people gain an illumined heart and as result perform dhikr.

Realise your weakness and He will strengthen you with His power. Realise your atw and He will strengthen you with His ability. For, truly, it manifests nothing but what is in keeping with its character or its inevitable nature. How can it be conceived that something veils Him, since He is more manifest than anything?

For this reason, they do not collide with anything except they knock it out: Therefore, praise is to Him who veiled you, not to the one who honoured and thanked you. iolah


Kitab Al Hikam of Ibn Ata Illah English & Arabic |

The lover is not he who expects his beloved to spend on him. Rather, srabic gnostic is the one who, because of his self-extinction in His Being and self-absorption in contemplating Him, has no symbolic allusion.

How can it be conceived that something veils Him, since He is the One who is manifest in everything? And the place where the second group starts is where the first group ends.

Kitab Al Hikam Of Ibn Ata Illah English & Arabic

And he is busied by the rights of God from remembering his selfish shares. Good states arise from the stations wherein abide those who have spiritual realisation.

Otherwise your intellect will be obscured and the light of your innermost heart extinguished. For others lbn, their remembrances and spiritual lights occur together. For others, their remembrances precede their spiritual lights.

And peace on you! Many a time He accepts an act whose fruit you do not taste now. Thus, the light of day is not from you and wrabic not belong to you; rather, it is merely being put over you. Pain even if manifest in many forms is only through being veiled from Him. Jail I c Jljil O l y o Duties assigned to specific times can be arabicc up for when missed but the rights of ubn moments of time cannot be made up for if missed.

Realise your humility and He will strengthen you with His pride. Or when was it that He became distant that created things themselves will unite us to Him?
