O Salman! All That The Sages And Mystics






O Salman! All that the sages and mystics have said or written have never
exceeded, nor can they ever hope to exceed, the limitations to which man's
finite mind hath been strictly subjected. To whatever heights the mind of
the most exalted of men may soar, however great the depths which the
detached and understanding heart can penetrate, such mind and heart can
never transcend that which is the creature of their own conceptions and
the product of their own thoughts. The meditations of the profoundest
thinker, the devotions of the holiest of saints, the highest expressions
of praise from either human pen or tongue, are but a reflection of that
which hath been created within themselves, through the revelation of the
Lord, their God. Whoever pondereth this truth in his heart will readily
admit that there are certain limits which no human being can possibly
transgress. Every attempt which, from the beginning that hath no
beginning, hath been made to visualize and know God is limited by the
exigencies of His own creation--a creation which He, through the operation
of His own Will and for the purposes of none other but His own Self, hath
called into being. Immeasurably exalted is He above the strivings of human
mind to grasp His Essence, or of human tongue to describe His mystery. No
tie of direct intercourse can ever bind Him to the things He hath created,
nor can the most abstruse and most remote allusions of His creatures do
justice to His being. Through His world-pervading Will He hath brought
into being all created things. He is and hath ever been veiled in the
ancient eternity of His own exalted and indivisible Essence, and will
everlastingly continue to remain concealed in His inaccessible majesty and
glory. All that is in heaven and all that is in the earth have come to
exist at His bidding, and by His Will all have stepped out of utter
nothingness into the realm of being. How can, therefore, the creature
which the Word of God hath fashioned comprehend the nature of Him Who is
the Ancient of Days?
