A description of the experience
ABD AL-KARIM AL-JILI: Tawid, Transcendence and Immanence – Dr Nicholas Lo Polito [University of Birmingham] - The Cave and the Inscription
(1) Praise be to God, Who conceals Himself under the cover of His essence. Who exists within the “heavy Clouds” of His depths.
Who is complete in His names and attributes.
Who unites by His divinity the composition of His opposites.
The One, in His loftiness.
The numerical one Whose attributes encompass all that He fulfils.
The Eternal that has no end.
The Eternal that has no beginning. …
Taking the forms of all the creatures He Himself has created.
Who is Himself the form of the world [found] among His human beings, His animals, His plants and His inanimate objects, abandoned under the canopy of His glory
