Hikam, wisdom n*17

 

He who wishes that there appear, at a given moment,
other than what God has manifested in it,
has not left ignorance behind at all!

Hikam, wisdom n*16

 

How can it be conceived that something veils Him,
since He is the One who manifests everything?
How can it be conceived that something veils Him
since He is the one who is manifest through everything?
How can it be conceived that something veils Him,
since He is the One who is manifest in everything?
How can it be conceived that something veils Him,
since He is the Manifest to everything?
How can it be conceived that something veils Him,
since He was the Manifest before the existence of anything?
How can it be conceived that something veils Him,
since He is more manifest than anything?
How can it be conceived that something veils Him,
since He is the One alongside of whom there is nothing?
How can it be conceived that something veils Him,
since He is nearer to you than anything else?
How can it be conceived that something veils Him,
since, were it not for Him,
the existence of everything would not have been manifest?
It is a marvel how Being has manifested in nonbeing,
and how the contingent has been established
alongside of Him who possesses the attribute of Eternity!

Hikam, wisdom n*15

That which shows you the existence of His Omnipotence
Is that He veiled you from Himself
By what has no existence alongside of Him.

” Nous avons commandé à l’homme [la bienfaisance envers] ses père et mère; sa mère l’a porté [subissant pour lui] peine sur peine: son sevrage a lieu à deux ans.› Sois reconnaissant envers Moi ainsi qu’envers tes parents. Vers Moi est la destination.”

(sourate 31 verset 14)

Hikam, wisdom n*14

The Cosmos is all darkness.
It is illumined only by the manifestation of God in it.
Whoever sees the Cosmos and does not contemplate 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.

Hikam, wisdom n*13

How can the heart be illumined while the forms of creatures are reflected in its mirror?
Or how can it journey to God
while shackled by its passions?
Or how can it desire to enter the Presence of God
while it has not yet purified itself
of the stain of forgetfulness?
Or how can it understand the subtle points of mysteries
while it has not yet repented of its offences?

Hikam, wisdom 12

Nothing benefits the heart more than a spiritual retreat
wherein it enters the domain of meditation (maydān fikra).

Hikam, wisdom n*11

Bury your existence in the earth of obscurity,
for whatever sprouts forth,
without having first been buried,
flowers imperfectly.

 

image

Hikam, wisdom n*10

Actions are lifeless forms,
but the presence of an inner reality of sincerity (sirr al-ikhlāṣ) within them
is what endows them with life-giving Spirit.

C’est Lui qui a fait du soleil une clarté et de la lune une lumière, et Il en a déterminé les phases afin que vous sachiez le nombre des années et le calcul (du temps). Allah n’a créé cela qu’en toute vérité. Il expose les signes pour les gens doués de savoir. (sourate 10 verset 5)
