ABD AL-KARIM AL-JILI: Tawid, Transcendence and Immanence – Dr Nicholas Lo Polito [University of Birmingham] - The Cave and the Inscription


 (3) Space does not restrict Him but is not empty of Him. The eye does not see Him but cannot hide from Him. He is the original causal determinant (Ma‘na ) of creation - [which is] an accident [derived] from an essence - and He is the reality (_aqiqa) of that essence and no accident can diminish Him.

The source of the experience

Jili, Abd al-Karim
